Toy Fair 2018 – Celestial Buddies Update

In 2016 we brought you information about Celestial Buddies and this year we bring you even more. The Celestial Buddies have released their press kit for Toy Fair 2018 and there is some new plushies for 2018.

From their press release: “Celestial Buddies, the only manufacturer of educational plush toys that depict celestial bodies in our solar system and beyond, will return to Toy Fair this year with all fourteen of its family of Plush Planetary Pals. Leading the way will be the newest Buddy, Polaris, the North Star, which is actually a “trinary,” or three-star, system. Also new to Toy Fair this year is Black Hole, a stuff sack that is capable of holding all of the other thirteen Buddies.”

“Polaris, the first of the Buddies to be illuminated from within, represents a big step forward for our company. It twinkles like its namesake, thanks to safety-tested, battery-operated LED lights inside its body, controlled by squeezing the on-off button inside Polaris’ left foot (it will also shut off automatically after 20 minutes.) And our Polaris Ab and B, one looking rather sleepy, the other looking like it just woke up, can cling to the supergiant’s hands, thanks to internal magnets.”

I’m a huge space/science nerd, so it’s actually a shocking surprise that I don’t already own any of these. I really need to get on that. I didn’t know that they released an Eclipse package last year with 2 pairs of viewing glasses, Earth Plush Celestial Buddy, Moon Plush Celestial Buddy, Sun Plush Celestial Buddy, and “Get Eclipsed: The Complete Guide to the American Eclipse,” by Pat and Fred Espenak. How cool?

Anyways, I might end up picking up some of these as they are super adorable, and with the Black Hole able to carry the others, I would have a way to store them… Yeah, I’ll probably be adding these to my universe.

New Youtube Video!

Hello everyone! I’ve been playing around with the idea of Youtube videos, like I have mentioned a few times. This is my first attempt at a time lapse video for a reroot I recently completed. I took a Dead Tired Frankie Stein doll and rerooted her using Sakura Nylon hair from dollyhair.com. You can see my process here. If you want, you can subscribe to the channel to see more in the future. This is just a starting point. I promise they will get better :)

New Ever After High Dolls on Amazon!

Super huge thanks to darth-alinart over on tumblr for these links! New Ever After High dolls are popping up on Amazon. They are not in stock as of this posting, but I will be checking back for them. You know I’m going to get that Apple White.

Apple White


Holly O’Hair


Madeline Hatter


Bunny Blanc


Raven Queen


Darling Charming


C.A. Cupid

I know… I know… the articulation thing again. Lots of people are probably going to skip on them because they don’t have wrists or knees, but after holding that Back to School Blondie in my hands, I gotta tell you…. it really isn’t that big of a deal for me. I know I’ll be getting Apple, Holly, and Cupid. The others will probably make their way into my collection at some point, but for now those three are my must-haves. What about you? Any that you will be picking up?
