Chris Hadfield may have been the first astronaut to record a music video in space, but NASA's Karen Nyberg may be the first to manufacture a toy on board the International Space Station. Nyberg, posting to her Pinterest account, shared this dinosaur plush animal that she crafted using a small sewing kit she brought on board and materials MacGyvered from around the station. "It is made out of velcro-like fabric that lines the Russian food containers found here on the International Space Station. It is lightly stuffed with scraps from a used t-shirt," wrote Nyberg.
While this plush dino could be the first such toy created on orbit, it's not the only toy on board the ISS. As Collectspace writes, astronauts have brought stuffed dolls to space before, with Russian cosmonauts having a tradition of using plush toys as talisman and "zero-g indicators". One of these toys: none other than Smokey Bear.
