Placenta Teddy Bear: Cute or Creepy?

Watch out, Build a Bear ... there's a new teddy in town.

placenta teddy bear

First, we told you about the mom who ate her placenta. Now new moms have another option: making a teddy bear out of it! No, we're not kidding.

Alex Green's "Twin Teddy Kit" enables preparation of the placenta so it may be transformed into a teddy bear. The placenta must be cut in half and rubbed with sea salt to cure it. After it is dried out, it is treated with an emulsifying mixture of tannin and egg yolk to make it soft and pliable. Then, you craft it into a teddy bear.

Wow ... we're speechless. What do YOU think?

I’m going to vote CREEPY on this one. I ain’t hatin’ on the placenta either. Any toy made out of human body parts is going to qualify.

If you stuff it with granny’s ashes, and add fur from mummy’s waxing, it would make a beautiful family heirloom reaching across the generations.

This is what I’d call an example of “gross out art”.

The word “fugly” comes to mind. It ain’t pretty, that’s for sure.
