A bloodless coup is sweeping the world of plush toys. There's a civil war between traditional teddy bears, puppy dogs , and the new breed of stuffed love bags. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you, for you enjoyment plush tampons, Toilet Paper, and Toast. Yah toast.

re: plush tampons...
this is a photo of my 8 yr old son holding them all!

Wow. At least he can take some solace in the fact that he will have taken part in the creation of a wholly new reason to get your ass kicked at school.

Oh god how freaking cute. I love the toilet paper, but the donuts really take the cake.

Thanks for the great link, drezdn! I'm toying with ordering the pina colada hat. And this 50 cent book is the cutest thing ever. It's a tale about a bar of soap. I have the feeling it ends up badly. Like, mushy sliver badly.

The toast and sushi are kinda cute, but who likes menstruating so much that she wants a stuffed tampon?

Or better yet, "We bought you this stuffed tampon! Now whenever you look at it, you'll think of us, and also you'll remember the last time you were doubled over with pain and you were bleeding from your vagina!".

The picture of all the toast just creeps me out.

When the Teddy Bear Revolution comes, "toast" will be the first against the wall.

I think that if i could make a whole pile of the toast plushes
and just
collapse in them
I would be happy.

That is the cutest toast I have ever seen.

Don't worry, no "real" tampons are harmed in the making of these fun dolls!
Of course they are another useless oil product.

Bloodless tampons eh?

what the plush are they thinking about, anyway?

Is this connected to those horrid, squeezable synthetic toys/objects I discovered in linens and Things last night? Oh, we are doomed!

Nearly as cute as plush microbes.

PP: what would those be?

What's the red line on the Toast's face?
Is that a smile?

Emjay: no, these are not "plush," but rather....oh it was just very disturbing.,...

A local toy store carries the plush microbes, the whole line. They're really something. For plush toys, anyway.

plush cthulhu will destroy you all. and maybe enslave the toast.

If it weren't for the string on that Tamp... nevermind.

The plush cthulu was pretty funny.
