My daughter knew all planets' names in consecutive order, nearest to farthest from the sun when she was 18 months old.
Fellow parents were always interested in how I taught her at such an early age. I always tell them that the strategy is to incorporate study in play.
Surround kids with things that could help with their early education, like this solar system lamp.
How I wish I had this back when my daughter was small.
Lucky for you, this solar system lamp is now available for your kids to enjoy and learn.
The lamp comes in a crystal ball design. Yes, like the one that fortunetellers use.
The big difference is that the solar system lamp does not rotate like the usual crystal balls. You don't need a spinning ball, after all.
Its main feature is the eight planets inside it, including each of their moons.
The planets appear according to their distance from the sun: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune.
In case you have forgotten, Pluto is no longer a planet. The International Astronomical Union demoted Pluto as a dwarf planet instead.
There are debates among scientists that Planet Nine should replace Pluto. But it's still a long discussion to go.
In the meantime, let's talk about these solar system lamps with just the eight planets in mind.
This crystal ball with a solar system sits atop a base that reflects seven different colors.
The changes in lightings highlight the planets and make them appear like they are genuinely in outer space. It will be like peaking in the galaxy.
The leading crystal ball is detachable from the base. It will be like having the whole universe on your palm.
If your kids get a little older, this crystal ball solar system would still be useful as a night light. Adults could also use it for home or office decoration.
Now that we are in the subject of adults, this solar system lamp is a nice gift for an astronomy enthusiast or your beloved physics professor.
A grade school principal would appreciate this just the same.
If you're feeling a little extra, you might want to get this as a party favor for your child's upcoming birthday.
Each product will come to you, complete with a gift box. How's that for a bonus?
