Uranus is king of the heavens and one cool side kick! Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun, named for the Greek god of the heavens. A think cloud of methane gas, which absorbs red light and reflects blue light, gives the planet a teal tint. Uranus has rings and more than 27 moons. The planet's most unique feature is that its axis is tilted at 98 degrees, so it rotates on its side, rolling around the sun like a ball instead of spinning like a top like all of the other planets. It is believed that in the early stages of formation, an earth sized object crashed into the planet, knocking it over onto its side. The plush Uranus is approximately 7.5" and is recommended for ages 3 and up.
