Celestial Buddies, these are fluffy planets for big and small children.
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!
