HASH(0x9979c0c0) out of 5 stars Not even a decent night light 21 Oct. 2010
By Summer - Published on Amazon.com

All of the reviews I read were poor, but I bought this item anyway because I wasn't looking for an educational toy so much as something to project stars onto the walls and ceiling while my two year old son fell asleep. The Star Theatre is total crap, to put it bluntly. The constellations are so fuzzy that the educational aspect of it is useless, and all they are is lines with dots, so it isn't a fun or interesting night light for younger kids.

It's also very chintzy and would probably break very easily. Complete waste of money.

HASH(0x9979c2e8) out of 5 stars Don't buy! Don't buy! 14 Nov. 2010

The item description makes this thing out to be A LOT better than it actually is. I purchased it for my 9yr old son and 11yr old daughter who show an avid interest in astronomy, but it was a major disappointment in any room we took it into. They were SO excited at first, but after trying it in every different sized room in our home (including the bathroom), I could tell they were getting more and more disappointed that it wasn't doing what I had told them it could do. You know, at the very least project constellations around the room! But those were mostly faded, fuzzy and frustratingly illegible. Even the CD dialogue was mind numbingly boring.. What a hunk of junk.. I recommend don't buy don't buy.. I wish I hadn't.

HASH(0x9979c54c) out of 5 stars Dangerous 7 Jan. 2011

The directions say not to leave a child unattended for good reason. Ours melted. The smell was awful. Fire hazard keep away.

HASH(0x9979c414) out of 5 stars Should Have Listened to all the Reviews... 11 Dec. 2010
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
I ordered this for a little girl who likes stars, not an astronomist. So when I read all the negative reviews, I figured everyone was expecting this toy to be a planetarium when all I wanted was an educational toy. My apologies for questioning everyone who said this was junk! It absolutely was -- I sent it right back.

HASH(0x9979c87c) out of 5 stars very disappointed 26 Dec. 2011
By Gertrude - Published on Amazon.com
Picture a sphere of clear plastic with white dots painted as stars and lines tracing out the constellations, with a lightbulb inside. Major issues: (1) this projects the stars as dark spots on a light background, rather than the inverse. (2) The stars, lines, and writing (constellation names) are blurry. The instruction manual says to "raise or lower" the projector until the stars are in focus- hah. The stars come somewhat into focus when the projector is about 1 foot below the ceiling. (3) No allowance is made for the fact that peoples' bedrooms have a flat ceiling, so even when the stars in the center are in focus, the surrounding stars are blurry. I wouldn't buy this for another child if it cost fifty cents at a yardsale- it's absolute junk.
