This Jellycat rocket sent me to the moon! I have the whole outerspace collection, so it only made sense to add this speedy red rocket!

My little girl loves pink and loves cats so this was a real winner. It's lovely and soft and well made. It was also a good price and received very quickly - ordered Friday afternoon and received Monday lunchtime.
