Death Star Planetarium Review

You know how every now and again a toy comes out that actually its you that gets really excited about it - well this is one of those!

I'm a Star Wars fan, have been since the early 80's and I love space - there was a time when I was small where I'd have liked to have been a astronaut - I was super lucky as a child, I got to go the the Space Centre at Cape Kennedy in Florida - somewhere I'd love to take my children. (My Astronaut dreams were short lived once I realised short sighted British girls with kidney problems don't get to go to the moon) 

So when I received a planetarium to review, I was so excited - This Star Wars Death Star Planetarium projects not just the Star Wars galaxy but also the earth's sky too!

There's a little bit of simple assembly to do - besides inserting batteries (3 AA not included) you also need to pop the bulb in too. Its all straight forward and takes a few mins.

There's a small on of switch - its cleverly disguised as one of the grey panels on the death star.

From the Star Wars galaxy I spotted Naboo and Tatooine straight away - how about you? 

My little boy is really getting into Star Wars which I'm really enjoying helping with - and he absolutely loves this planetarium.
