Excellent activity

Love this. Did it with my 4.5 year old son who’s obsessed with the solar system. Very easy to use and put together. The water colours are lovely.


The quality and presentation of these products is amazing, thank you

Lovely but base needs work

I bought this for my 4 years old granddaughter who is learning about the planets in our solar system. She was delighted with it and I helped her to colour the planets and the sun. But when we came to fitting them into the base it was clear that they would not fit.. I contacted Cottontwist who sent a replacement base by return post. I still have problems with this as my granddaughter likes to pick up the display and the planets fall off.If the base were thicker, the whole display would be sturdier. Having said all that, we love it.


Really great gift for my 9 year old grandson it has everything you need in the box really good for creative and curios minds so well presented


Bought for our grandson came beautifully packaged was not only entertaining but educational too he spent hours making and then googling the solar system. Highly recommend
