Study the night sky on your walls & ceiling overhead. Listen to a guided audio tour of the sky. Then tuck your cute little star sphere under your arm and head outside for a first class view of the Milky Way.
There are so distinct advantages to this unique 3D star finder it may change the way we teach Astronomy.
The sphere's dome-shaped upper hemisphere has a built in compass and glows in the dark. So what? So . . .you can see see a perfect replica of the sky in miniature. Simplify the process of locating your favorite constellations when you take it outside and find the same constellations lit up (and labeled with their names) right below you--directly up above you!
Imagine a simple, highly effective method of learning about Astronomy. Being able to point out constellations. Having greater understanding and appreciation of the wonders of the cosmos.
Control the included Meteor Maker to project streaking comets overhead-even includes a Halley's comet slide.
With Star Theatre II, your stargazing takes on new meaning. A shining stand-out in the realm of Astronomy education.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
The quality of the product was not what I was looking for. The names of the constellations were blurry, no matter how I tried to position it on the ceiling and walls, the view was not good. The display was bunched together making it difficult to see the individual star creations. I purchased this for my grandson to introduce him to the night sky. I do not feel it will be helpful to him in identifying. Initially I thought the price was good for what (I thought) I was getting but the price turned out to be too much for what I actually received. Very disappointed.

Information about Star Theater 2

I thought this seemed like a really fun idea but when we got it the plastic is very cheap and its not very sturdy. I can see this being broken after only a few uses. The idea is a cool one but I would try finding something longer lasting.

A rating of Star Theater 2
Posted 4/20/2012 by Mary McElroy
We were disappointed that the stars on the ceiling were dark shadows. If the globe were black and the stars were openings for the light to shine through, it would look a lot more like the night sky. My grandson does use it some, but thinks it doesn't look like the stars.
If any Fat Brain Toy fails to shine as you think it should, move out of the dark with a quick visit the Returns & Exchanges center. We assisted our customer promptly.
Steven's Birthday Gift

We bought this for my grandson's 10th birthday. He's studying astronomy in school and loves looking at the stars. For Christmas he received a telescope and I thought this would be a perfect accompaniment to his telescope. He's excited for a clear night so that he can go outside and find all of the constellations. He loves it!
