Solar System Ceiling Decoration
We used this as decoration for Day 4 of creation. It looked great and was so big we needed to cut it down (which did not effect the function at all). The left-over piece was used in our closing VBS skit. The colors are bright and of excellent quality (planets/stars are attached to clear plastic strips to extend down). Some of the planets were "folded" during packaging, but it was fairly easy to straighten them.

Better than expected
The description and picture doesn't do this justice. It's 12 feet long and about 12 inches wide. I expected a squarish piece of vinyl, but it was so long it was show stopper. Everyone commented on how cool it was. Two of the strips of planets came off right away, so the quality isn't amazing, but it was a great deal. The handles on the ends made it really easy to hang.

good solar system with the sky
This item was what it said it was but when I hung it, it was too short for my needs and I could not get the hanging planets to look right. I made it work, though and the blue sky looks good.

Great for Science Fun
I bought this for a Science Family Fun Night and it was great! The quality is sturdy and well put together and it is ENORMOUS! Definitely would recommend this to anyone

Great space themed decoration!
This decoration is larger than it appears in the pictures online. I was happy with the way it looked hanging over the birthday table - it added a lot to the party atmosphere. My son liked it so much that he begged me to leave it up after the party!

Transforms the Room
We used this for my son's space birthday party in conjunction with black star fabric and it was fantastic. The ceiling decorations are sturdy, pretty and there's a lot of it. We used it both inside and out (under a covered area on a good weather day but windy and everything stayed intact). I highly recommend this if you are planning a space themed event. I'm hoping to get a second use out of them!

This was a neat decoration for my daughter's science themed birthday present. When I first opened it, one string of planets fell off, but you couldn't tell at all once it was hung up. Once it's open, it's really hard to fold back up, so I recommend waiting until you are ready to put it up before opening the package.

Fun party decoration; not fancy but not shabby
I bought this for a space themed birthday party, and I was really happy with it. It is quite long, and as other reviewers indicated it has many sets of planets. If you're a stickler about Pluto, it is included, but it seems to me like it is one of the low-level planets on this decoration so you could just cut all the Plutos off if it mattered to you. It was easy to hang, and it's been up for almost a week now and it still looks fine, so I am pretty sure it would last for a space unit at school or something else longer-term than a party as well. It isn't beautiful, but it isn't ugly and it serves its purpose well.

Fun in the classroom
This is a lot of fun in my 7th grade science classroom--but it was a challenge to put up on the ceiling. The tabs that were to be used broke and we had to come up with an alternate method.

This was honestly better than I expected. Hard to tell online whether something is just too cheap to use. It went up quickly and looked festive for my son's 4 th bday party. It is still up 3 weeks later (secured with extra tape). My only gripe is that in the picture you cant tell that the planet pattern is repeated, so when you hang it , there are the same pattern on each row. But just me being wierd, really. It is a nice addition for a party or kids' room.
