knitted planets

bag of planets

A collection of 10 knit and stuffed spheres featuring each planet and the Sun (and yes, I included Pluto even though he is, sadly, no longer a planet. Explain why to your child for additional bonus points!) These toys are a great way to spark interest in space for kids… or a wonderful gift for your space-loving friends.

Each is colorfully embroidered with its initials for reference. Diameters range from 2 to 9 inches across, and their sizes are accurate in relation to each other [Read More].
