Celestial Buddies sells huggable plush planets that are pretty danged adorable -- they come with little information booklets to nurture kids' curiosity about space.
Alas, as with the solar system glasses, they're only loosely to scale, which makes sense, because not many kids could be expected to have an extra football stadium in which to keep their plush Sol.
Celestial Buddies is an original line of plush characters each personifying a celestial body occupying our heavens. The Celestial Buddies' "Big Bang" moment occured after the creator of this miniature stuffed universe saw a documentary series on the Solar System. Have you ever noticed that there is so much variation among the planets and that each has its own unique characteristics, identity and personality?
We have designed each Celestial Buddy to stay true to these unique variations through careful selection of fabrics and decisions regarding size, shape and features to create an artistic interpretation of each celestial body. Each character comes with a tag showing the actual object it personifies and some fun facts to give the toy educational value.
