"Little Earth" Has Become a Social Media Star
“It’s still hard to grasp, exceptionally exciting. We never expected it,” said Jonathan Silbert. He’s a New Haven based judge and mediator and said he and his family are over the moon after watching “Earth,” part of their Celestial Buddies plush toy line, become an instant star with a trip to the International Space Station.
“All of a sudden Elon Musk decided he was going to send what he calls a ‘super hi tech zero gravity detector’ into space on the SpaceX rocket Friday night,” Silbert said. Since then, just like “Earth,” the demand for the plush planetary pal skyrocketed.
