ZOMG YOU GUYS. I first came in contact with plush organs a few years ago when my husband and I bought our son a platelet, but since that purchase was entirely body-part-specific and sentimental, it never occurred to me to investigate further. I'm pretty sure these are mostly meant to be used as educational toys for your kids, but if I had known purple and pink plush ovaries were available, I would have already stocked up on three dozen of 'em and given them out at every baby shower I've been to in the past five years or in response to each pregnancy announcement that's popped up on Facebook. BUT NO MATTER: now we all know.

These specific plushies are all related to pregnancy and/or birth in some way, but there are tons of options out there: you can mix and match kidneys, adopt a brain cell, or even scribble notes on your very own guts stationary. LOVE. IT.


Can we talk about how this blue testicle (blue… ball, anyone?) has ELVIS PRESLEY HAIR? I mean, y'all:

I rest my case.

Got a friend who's currently spending a large percentage of her time breastfeeding? What says "I'm sorry you have to go pump every two hours when we're out together, but man your baby is CUTE!" better than a bright pink mammary gland? Related: I didn't really know what mammary glands are supposed to look like until I saw this thing.

I literally squealed when I saw this plush prostate! It's so adorable in all of its sperm-protecting ways, and if seminal vesicle glands really look like little broccoli sticking out on top of the prostate then someone needs to tell the uninformed dudes of the world that they have some seriously cute glands going on down there.

Excuse me, you guys, but do you know what this is? A PLUSH SPERM CELL WITH A BLUE BOW ON ITS HEAD. I think I need to just end on that note.
