Whether your child wants to become an astronaut or your life dream is to work at NASA, a little bit of space makes your bedroom more magical.

This rotating solar system lamp showcases the sun along with all the major planets, but its actually got another function too. The sun can also be modified to reveal the constellations, which can be projected onto the walls of the room when you switch off the lights. So cool!

This lamp is $32.99 and runs on four C batteries. Next time you want to add a little wonder to your life, switch it on and lay in the dark thinking about the vastness of the universe.
