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 realised that there were no plush toys depicting the planets and started designing! And what a fantastic job they've done of bringing the universe home to space explorers young and old.
