The Whole World in Your Hands
Robert Forenza calls his Hugg-a-Planet stuffed Earth “the teddy bear of the 21st century.” You can hug it and snuggle with it, roll it and toss it. Even better, you can learn from it: The planet’s up-to-date map features more than 600 labeled places. Pictured here is the classic model (12-inch diameter, $19.95), offered in three languages (English, French, and Spanish). Six-inch ($9.95) and 24-inch ($79.95) Earth models and a Hugg-a-Planet Mars ($16.95) are also available. From Hugg-a-Planet, Essex Junction, Vermont. 800-332-7840, 802-878-8900; peacetoys.com
