Comments about Simple Machines Set:

Saturns rings are poorly designed and saggy. Makes for a problematic demonstration and causes deflation in a way that cannot be repaired. Otherwise, an excellent product!

Comments about Simple Machines Set:

The air pump in the kit broke before all pieces were inflated. However, once inflated, the pieces were great aids with topographical differences between the planets easily visible to children. They could hang for a suspended model of the solar system, or be held by children for an interactive model.
