Our solar system is mad up of many, many objects, from tiny specks of dust all the way up to the Sun, which contains 99.86% of all matter in the solar system!  Included in this set are the 8 "classic" planets, several moons, and the 5 newly classified "dwarf planets," including the Pluto-Charon binary system.  Welcome to the neighborhood, it's out of this world!

This large magnetic play surface will let curious young minds learn the names and positions of the planets in our solar system, as well as their associated moons/satellites.  Each planet also includes a series of pertinent facts, listing the planet's diameter, distance from the sun, the number of days on Earth it takes each to make a full rotation around the sun (each planet's "year"), and one fun fact.  Having a good grasp of the size and characteristics of our solar system helps kids visualize massive size and distance, and encourages students to learn more about our galaxy, the universe at large, and the place of humankind within the bigger picture.  Place the magnetic planet in its corresponding orbit or match the planet names, facts or moons to the planet for educational fun!  You can also map the solar system on your refrigerator or any other metal surface.  Give your child a head-start on learning about the solar system and expand their scientific awareness with the Solar System Magnetic Playset!

Features:

  • Magnetic pieces stick to the large playboard
  • Planets include diameter, distance from the sun, year length, and fun fact
  • Moons and/or satellites associated with each planet are also included
  • Place each magnetic piece onto the corresponding orbit on the playboard
  • Can also be used as fun refrigerator magnets!

Please note: Every effort has been made to assure accuracy.  However, given the fact that our knowledge of our solar system is in constant flux and subject to changes, we cannot guarantee absolute accuracy.
