Although they’re mainly targeted at toddlers and young children, star projectors can stimulate anybody’s sense of wonder if they have a little imagination. Depending on the projector, you can also install them outside the house for special occasions like holiday celebrations and parties. Portable or stationary, these devices can provide the type of atmosphere you couldn’t otherwise get without visiting a planetarium.
Still, they cannot all be expected to meet the same standards, at least not without spending a fortune on them. To save you the trouble of going through what the market has to offer yourself, we put together a list of the ten best star projectors money can buy.
