Friday Review: Space Torch Image Projector

Sponsored Post

The lovely people at sent us a Space Torch Image Projector to try out an review on the blog. With a daughter who is really keen on science this is a great thing to have. The torch itself is very neat and comes with 3 projector discs:

It is easy to use as you slide back the catch and pop in the disc (it will only go in one way round) and then switch on the torch. If like us you find the image is blurred then the instructions on the card say to adjust the white focus ring.

There are 3 different discs each with a set of NASA images. To switch between images on a disc you simply rotate with your thumb. Below I have put in a photograph from each one that I took from my bedroom ceiling last night!


A nebuale?

As a mum one thing I like about this product is that it can also be used as just a normal torch. So if your child loses the discs you don't have to throw away the torch. I think I need to brush up on my astronomy to explain what some of the images are but it's a simple way to see some of the more important space features.

Currently on the web site this is priced at £4.49 so an excellent stocking filler price. And until 5PM today (18/11/11) its an extra 10% off! So if you have a budding NASA scientist in the family pop on over and get one today. In fact I had fun looking at the images last night in my room when the kids were in bed so it may make a fun gift for a grown up too!
