Eleven colourful, jumbo sized, inflatable planets enable you to bring the Solar System straight into your classroom.
Create an intergalactic experience and use the planets to demonstrate rotation, the orbiting of the planets, revolution and the position of each planet in the Solar System. They can also be used to create a fantastic classroom display.
Each planet is made from a durable, washable plastic and a foot pump is included for easy inflation and deflation. A repair kit, hand tags and activity guide are also included.
