I will be your guide in the night sky!

I am a yellow supergiant...the brightest star in the constellation Ursa Minor (a/k/a Little Bear or Little Dipper). 

I am located almost directly above the Earth’s North Pole, so I am also called the Pole Star or the North Star. I do not appear to “rise” or “set” at night but seem almost motionless while the other stars of the northern sky revolve around me. I'm only the 46th brightest star, so the best way to find me is to follow the "Pointer Stars" in the Big Dipper, which will lead you right to me. Once you locate me in the sky, walk toward me, and you will be heading north. I helped sailors and explorers find their way across the Atlantic Ocean into uncharted territory, and I will also keep you safe and headed in the right direction.   

Because the Earth’s axis changes gradually over time, I wasn’t always the Pole Star, and in about 12,000 years, Vega, in the constellation Lyra, will replace me as the new Pole Star.  Until then, however, you can count on me to be your Guide in the Night Sky.

Note: The Two Little Stars, Polaris Ab & B are sold separately (CB017).

Battery pack fail after only 3 weeks of ownership

My son received Polaris for his birthday (he has every other Celestial Buddy), and after 3 weeks the batteries died. So I gently attempted to replace them (requires removing a screw) and noticed the "on/off" slider was completely missing (seems like it shouldn't be able to just fall out, but it wasn't inside the plastic battery case either). Put new batteries in anyway, and it still won't turn on at all even though the circuit appears to be fully connected/complete inside the plastic casing. Now autistic son is crying, this was a huge comfort to him especially at night to help him fall asleep. No help anywhere on the internet for what went wrong, and this doll was expensive to break/fail so soon.

Polaris - North Star Buddy

I LOVE this twinkling large North Star I will be using teaching school children about Earth’s 23.5 degree tilt towards Polaris as we orbit around the Sun - the reasons for the seasons!

It will make re-enacting orbiting the sun with tilted Earths for the entire class more fun and easier to keep our Earths tilted towards a twinkling Polaris!
