Planetarium Creator Reviews
product looked really good qualityBy: Gail on 2 January 2022After buying this for my 12 year old daughter, product looked really good quality and fun thing to make. However the instructions were horribly hard to follow and she had no clue what to do, as well as very very s**y pictures on following how to put the led in. In the end the wires didn’t connect the led broke, very disappointed. Very bad product that isn’t clear what to do and has no where to actually see what to do, Would not recommended.

Thanks for your feedback Gail, we've passed this on to the makers of this kit and they've taken your feedback on board and will be working on improving the instruction sheet. We also had a go putting it together and could see that they could be better. Really appreciate you taking the time to send in your thoughts. - Peter & The CoolThings Team.
