Cool Kids Stuff for Astronomy Week

We've got a sweet telescope, Star Wars planetarium, rocket T-shirt – even weird alien creature toys – all sure to put stars in your family's eyes

ZOOB Alien Creatures

Five basic shapes. Twenty different combinations. All to boldly go where few building blocks have gone before: Moveable creations kids can actually play with. Infinitoy's award-winning invention channels Mars with Z.A.C. The 200 pieces snap together to form aliens, UFOs, a radio telescope and oodles more. Bonus: 12 pieces glow-in-the-dark, and you can even give Z-boy a pair of light-up eyes. About $40 ($25 on Amazon).

These ideas are great and even as our children get older it's wonderful that we supported these interests. Our son's loved this, attended Space Camp, visited Cranbrook, loved the Smithsonian Air and Space museum.

It all paid off because they just finished a very difficult college Astronomy course and they both got a B.

I'd urge parents to take these and provide fun learning paths for your children.
