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

Death Star Planetarium

The Force is right in your kid's room with this geek-tastic grab. Shaped like the evil Galactic Empire's notorious moon-sized space station, this tabletop planetarium is a must for any young Padawan. Junior Jedis get one of two choices: the Star Wars galaxy, complete with the planets of Alderaan and Dagobah, or our own humble solar system. About $30.

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.
