Celestial Buddies, these are fluffy planets for big and small children.
Our Planet, Our Responsibility.
Is extraterrestrial life out there? While the search continues, we have found no evidence of any other planet with such an amazing variety of living things and ecosystems as Our Precious Planet, so let’s not take it for granted. Earth was formed 4.53 billion years ago; the earliest forms of life appeared at least 3.5 billion years ago; and we people . . . homo sapiens . . . have been living on it for only around 200,000 years. Although the Earth’s climate can change gradually over time, human activities, such as industry, deforestation, pollution and urban development, have speeded up the pace of climate change and are increasing the amount of global warming. Global Warming leads to melting glaciers, rising sea levels, extreme weather and species extinctions. Earth needs our help now!
How can YOU help? Recycle bottles, cans, plastic, & paper. Turn off water and electricity when not in use. Drink filtered tap water and carry it in reusable bottles. Ask your parents to buy reusable grocery bags. Plant a tree or a garden. Walk or ride a bike when you can. Don't litter. Learn all you can about our environment, and please take good care of Our Precious Planet!

Celestial Buddies is an original line of plush characters each personifying a celestial body occupying our heavens. The Celestial Buddies' "Big Bang" moment occurred after the creator of this miniature stuffed universe saw a documentary series on the Solar System and realized that there were no plush toys depicted our planetary neighbors. So she set to work, and Celestial Buddies is the result.
Have you ever noticed that there is so much variation among the planets and that each has its own unique characteristics, identity and personality? They 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, along with some vital statistics and fun facts to give the Buddy educational value.
So is your ideal Buddy energetic, playful with a sunny disposition, like our Sun? Cool and calm with a zest for life, like Earth? Feisty and friendly, like Mars? Or a loyal companion, like the Moon?
Celestial Buddies conquer the world - and space!
On Saturday, March 2, 2019, SpaceX launched its Crew Dragon Rocket toward the International Space Station. On board was Celestial Buddies’ own Earth, which SpaceX founder Elon Musk dubbed a “super high tech zero-g indicator.”
Originally the Buddy was intended as a test body to observe the weightlessness during the unmanned test flight. So now it's official: the Celestial Buddies live up to their name!
