Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool This is really cool and my son loves it but it's way smaller then I thought

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was looking toward to seeing this in action but it was a letdown for me. The base is not wood as advertised but plastic, so it feels kinda cheap off the bat. The battery compartment also seemed ill designed, the battery didn't stay secure and the lead was fiddly. And like the last review mentions, it doesn't spin smoothly or quietly at all. It's such a cool idea but this was returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool idea, but could be improved I love the design and overall look of this on my desk. Most people are fascinated when they see it! I must admit though, I thought it wouldn't make noise at all, it does while it moves which can be slightly disruptive. Also requires batteries which I did not expect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool I agree that it would have been nice for it to run on magnets and not batteries, but it looks neat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nifty Nice take on a perpetual motion desk ornament. Would have preferred an old school one that just had a couple of magnets rather than batteries, but the rocket ship makes up for that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for brainstorming I tend to play with things (that aren't fidget spinners) when I'm lost in thought or suffering from a writers block, so playing with this really helps

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh I just received this in the mail and I was hoping it would be a great addition to my sons space themed room. Unfortunately the quality is not great. The base is NOT wood as it notes in the description and most of the chrome parts are flimsy plastic. When I opened the box the parts felt dusty. On the pro side the magnets do make the space shuttle and moon rotate around. Needless to say I will be returning this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool light! This light is pretty cool! The rays do not reflect on the wall but its more of an accent light. Really cool to watch in a darker room and is very relaxing too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cool! This is a fun light. My kids love the way you can touch the sphere and the light waves follow your fingers.
