I’ve bought 2 of these solar system bracelets - one for myself and one for my friend who is a retired, middle school science teacher. I’m a retired school teacher too - but I didn’t teach science, but I love educational things like this bracelet.

Go, Pluto! The planet that was gets some love on this bracelet -- which makes for a great teaching tool with students (as do the beads that reflect proportional distances). Perfect teacher gift that gives a great visual of something that can be hard for little ones to get. Laura was great to work with -- shipping was fast and items were well packaged. Much appreciated!
