Meet Boot Planet
  Meet Boot Planet  

When scientists announced that Pluto was a non-planet, Boot Planet nominated himself as a replacement planet. He felt worthy of the category, despite being only a few inches high, earthbound and made of plastic. Every day, he would practice jumping up and down, hoping to break free of the Earth's atmosphere. He was able to launch himself six feet, which is impressive but not nearly high enough. The children who owned him were glad that he didn't leave Earth. They loved him so much; he was happy to stay. He knew deep in his heart that he was the center of their universe.

Boot Planet is available for you to befriend with gifts and corresponding benefits starting at $5,000.
