Story book and sensory box ideas

I've decided I would like to find a fun story book about space or planets for a 6 year old girl but would also like to include a sensory box for her brother as they both share the interest and likes reading to him.

I've seen some glow in the dark 3d planets I'm going to order but then I am stumped of what else to include. I tried searching for those rubbery aliens you used to get but not had any luck.

Has anyone got any suggestions as to what else to include and/or can recommend a nice book that I can buy. I'm on a budget of about £12.

Thanks in advance

We have lots of space books and by far the most popular and well loved is the DK Pop Up Pull Out Space Book. Sadly I can't see it for under £12, but might be worth looking for a secondhand copy if you can find one in good condition.

Other ideas:
Freeze dried ice cream aka 'space ice cream'
Die cast space shuttle
Star projector lamp or torch

...and I've just noticed you were looking for a story book blush

No your ideas are great thank you. I have found the book for £7 so keeping in mind. I should have mentioned that I'm posting the present so the box needs to be filled with bits that will travel well. I've found some glow in the dark stars and managed to find one of those gooey stretchy aliens so just looking for other bits to include too.

I saw those projectors in B&m too but because her brother has epilepsy I'm a bit dubious in case it is a trigger.
