Containing original illustration work, the circles work together to visualise and explore our solar system in context.

They are both simple small world toys and complex resources STEM learning. As on the reverse are key facts on the sequence, relative size and scale at play between each planet.

As a collection, the circles open up conversations about space, technology, conditions for life and environmental sciences. Equally, they offer a starting point to encourage further exploration and child-led learning.

Handcrafted in Britain

All toys are designed and crafted by me, Dr Hellion. I take my role and responsibilities within the Heritage craft of toymaking seriously. I aim to keep a low carbon footprint by sourcing materials locally from other independent businesses, typically within 20 miles of my workshop. I also avoid petroleum-derived paints, finishes and plastics of any kind. My collection is entirely plastic-free, solvent-free, VOCs-Free and BPA-free. My toys are vegan-friendly and gentle to the natural environment.

Uniquely Made

All of our toys are one of a kind creations made from naturally grown materials. Each toy is unique as a result and will have subtle variations from one piece to the next. The wood will have grain, knots, and natural markings. It will absorb paint, varnish and dyes differently as a result. You may also see brushstrokes, uneven lines and elements that add to the character of your toy.

Crafted to Last

We like to celebrate the unique nature of each, and every single quality toy made. As well as the desirability that goes with the knowledge that you are buying a one-off, handcrafted item. To protect these unique toys, a special eco finish is applied. It does not contain any harmful chemicals to force it to dry quickly. Instead, the finish will continue to harden naturally over several weeks and you will feel this process when you handle the toy.


I am a fully insured toymaker and all my toys are independently lab safety tested and certified CE. As a testament to my quality and safety commitments, I am a Member of the British Toymakers Guild and Heritage Craft Association. Hellion Toys is proud to be a member and support the aims and objectives of the trade organisation ACID (Anti Copying in Design). All Hellion Toys designs are supported by ACID through their IP Databank and ACID Marketplace.

    No regrets I wasn't sure about getting these for my two year old as I wasn't sure she was ready for space things. I decided after her showing interest in rocket launches and rockets in picture books I would get them. They are a lovely size for toddler hands - and lots of interesting facts on the back of them for older kids. My toddler loves pointing out planets and making her peg people visit them, whilst singing along to the nursery rhyme "5 little men in a flying saucer". No regrets, so happy I got these.

    Perfect toy for all space fans My children absolutely love the Planets, especially my 6 year old who is going to Mars when his older. The toys are a good size for little hands to hold, nice and thick and great quality. I love the added information on the back. Also the addition of the Sun and Moon leads to further discussions about day and night and our own planet

    A stunning set to keep forever! These beautifully made, informative toys are an absolute joy! They’re pleasingly sized, and will provide a real source of entertainment for me and my sons for many years to come. My two and a half year old already enjoys stacking, colour sorting them and using them for open ended imaginations. He can almost name every one of them by their picture, and I look forward to using them in the future to further his knowledge of the world and beyond. Also, they never get hidden away, as they’re pretty downright gorgeous to look at, too!
