I am a ruddy Buddy and a friendly neighbor!

Mars…is a ruddy Buddy and a friendly neighbor! Mars, the red planet, is named after the Roman God of War, but he is a lover, not a fighter. This guy is one friendly Martian!

I am the fourth planet from the Sun and your nearest planetary neighbor. I can pass as close as 35 million miles away from you. My most distinctive characteristic is my rusty red color caused by iron rich minerals in my rocks. When viewed from space, the only areas not red are the white patches at my poles . . . my polar ice caps . . . frozen all year round. I am named after the Roman God of War because my red color is reminiscent of blood. But don’t worry; I’m a peace loving, friendly Martian!

My day is just a few minutes longer than yours, but while Earth has one Moon, I have two. Deimos and Phobos are very small and orbit very close to my surface, Deimos  is only about 3700 miles away and takes just 8 hours  to orbit me.  Phobos is further away, and its orbit takes 30 hours.  Your Moon. on the other hand, takes an entire month to orbit the Earth!

MAR-velous

Super cute. I've loved these ever since seeing them in the Lowell Observatory gift shop several years ago.
Shipped quickly, Mars is well constructed and adorable! Great for anyone who loves Science, Stars/Planets, and just a touch of whimsy.

Mars is the "It" toy right now

Between the movie "The Martian" and the recent landing of Perseverance on Mars, this Celestial Buddy has been attached to my children's collective hip for the past week. I am always so impressed by the fun and educational details the planets have, and Mars is no exception; its white hair represents its polar ice cap! Great product -- highly recommend!

Cuddly Red Planet

I was surprised that Mars was smaller than I thought (compared to my Earth buddy) but then I remembered that Mars is smaller than Earth so thanks to Celestial Buddies I learned (sort of ) learned something new. That's why these toys are so important because they're a new way to learn about our universe aside from the usual model kit. They're also cute and cuddly and this Mars is very cute and cuddly!
