Cute and Cuddly…With a Difference
Who says cuddly creatures can only be cute teddies, doggies, pandas, or bunnies?
At the Hospital in the Rock in Budapest someone with a great sense of humor has come up with the idea of medical-themed plush toys. You can buy plush viruses, or plush sperm, or plush microbes, authentically shaped. All are soft, brightly-colored and come with a label explaining what they are.
Quite a different idea, and could be educational about medical matters if explained properly to kids.
The ones we saw were 3000 forint (US$10.50) each.
For “fun” you can also buy a model of a gas mask from the Cold War, for 1500 forint. Personally, I’m not sure I’d want kids to have these, as what message are we trying to send/teach?
