REVIEW: Jade Stars – Year of the Horse

Year of the Horse 01

Background

To celebrate 2014 - the Year of the Horse – Mini Magellan has released the first of twelve limited edition plush toys from their book “Jade Stars: The Great Race”. The book is written by Charles Huang and Stacey Hirata and illustrated by Jerome Lu of Hyperactive Monkey. The Year of the Horse plush was designed by Jerome Lu and by Patty Variboa of Fat Rabbit Farm, and makes a great gift for anyone born in the Year of the Horse (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014).

In the Chinese lunar calendar, a different animal represents each year in a 12-year cycle. People born under a particular year identify with that animal’s personality traits, strengths, weaknesses and compatibility with the other animals.

The Year of the Horse comes seventh in the Chinese zodiac and people born under this sign are talkative, cheerful and love being the life of the party.

Mini Magellan has provided us with the Year of the Horse plush for this review.

A little bit about him:

Otis is the lead singer of one of the sweetest bands to ever hit the Northwest: Otis and the Canadian Soldiers! His band is a killer blend of punk and dance jams, and is made up completely of MadKnits monsters. Originally from Canada (and before that outerspace) Otis is stoked to be travelling again and bringing his unique sound and fashion sense stateside! Keep an eye out, he might be hitting a venue near you soon...
