Astronaut Snoopy, that classic space pooch from Peanuts, has launched a comeback this year with his own Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon, Apple TV+ cartoon series, books and yes, toys. And on Thanksgiving (Nov. 28), NASA and Peanuts announced that a new Astronaut Snoopy plush doll is flying in space on the International Space Station!
That Astronaut Snoopy Plush from Hallmark normally retails for $14.99, but Amazon has it marked down to $7.49, saving you 50% this Black Friday. Like any good astro-mutt, Astronaut Snoopy comes with a clear plastic helmet and a metallic orange spacesuit with NASA's meatball logo. It's 8 inches tall and 4 inches wide and long.
This Hallmark Astronaut Snoopy plush is the same version that NASA launched to the International Space Station to help inspire kids (and adults) in the wonder of space exploration. It's the same design as a giant Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, too.
The Astronaut Snoopy Plush is part of a Snoopy celebration of the 50th anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 moon landing, which occurred in July. Snoopy has also been a mascot for spaceflight safety at NASA, which doles out a Silver Snoopy award to employees who go above and beyond to keep astronauts safe.
In 2018, NASA and Peanuts Worldwide announced plans to launch new Astronaut Snoopy books, clothing and more to both celebrate Apollo 11 and inspire a new generation of kids in space exploration. So it's not surprising that Hallmark's Astronaut Snoopy isn't the only thing on sale this Black Friday.
