Creepy Inside Out Stuffed Animals: Would You Buy Them For Your Kids?

Recycled creepy stuffed animals outsiders inside out plush

Inside out stuffed animals: creepy or cute?

Check out these rather creepy inside out stuffed animals called “Outsiders” would you buy them for your kids?

While the intention here is noble, the execution is a bit Frankenstein-esque.

Outsiders, you see, are recycled stuffed animals turned inside out. So, recycling and reusing is good, right?

Well… yes, I don’t argue that. The way these animals are turned inside out and stitched together, however, comes across a little nightmarish.

Zurich designers Atelier Volvox came up with the concept by creating new toys from old discarded stuffed animals.

The designers explain: “Outsiders are second-hand plush toys of various forms and sizes, who are given a new life by opening, reversing and resewing them.”

They add: “Due to this procedure an old, worn plush toy becomes a “brand new” product with a slightly different look. Despite their bizarre appearance, however, Outsiders are friendly and adorable.”

See? They’re totally friendly… sheesh… it’s not like they’re going to come alive at night and turn on you or anything.

    This guy has a lot of spunk, plus it takes a little effort to get that trunk inside out, right?

    He's got a real "Frankenweenie" vibe, but this might be the most lovable of the bunch.
