New product releases include the Galaxies Planetarium, featuring images from deep space captured by the Chandra telescope, which is run by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. This product also projects the stars of the northern sky onto ceilings and walls.
“We’re looking forward to continuing this partnership, and to all the new ways in which we can bring the museums’ most exciting experiences to life for kids and families at home,” says Carol LeBlanc, vice president, Smithsonian Enterprises.
“NSI is very excited to expand our Smithsonian master toy license into the craft category,” says Brian Waldman senior vice president, NSI. “By giving kids the tools they need to create their own ‘masterpieces,’ it’s almost like they’re making their own mini-museums at home.”
