CAMP Cosmic Crewneck Sweater

Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids. In fact, it’s cold – so cold that even a super snuggly Cosmically cool CAMP Crewneck Sweater probably won’t cut it against the -81 F average. But if by chance, those kids are on Earth, this cozy crewneck would be a great way to cut the cold, without even having to pull on a space helmet.

Only the best and the bravest have the honor of wearing this high-tech gear.  Your little Space Ranger can keep in touch with Star Command using the communicator on the belt, and remove the fuel cell to reveal a top-secret compartment with a hidden switch. This helmet is just like Buzz’s; the clear front panel of the visor features futuristic etchings, and flips up for places where the atmosphere is breathable. So grab this gear, because it’s time for your Space Ranger to suit up!
