Build a solar system and set it in motion! This mechanical model, known as an orrery, shows the sun and 8 current planets plus an expansion slot in case mysterious Planet Nine is discovered. Kids can assemble the model and detail each planet while learning about planetary gears, and each planet's order, relative size and rate of revolution around the sun.
