Ovaries of Danger

It’s just as the Patriarchy is always saying: ovaries are dangerous and need to be controlled!

I Heart Ovaries

This soft pink uterus is ready for action! When it’s that time of the month, you may not like your uterus much, but hey, you wouldn’t be here without one, so give props to this special reproductive organ. Besides, if you think cramps are bad, you should try childbirth. This extra-soft 8″ x 7″ plush comes with an informative tag that describes the magic that is the uterus.

Actually, just these ones are dangerous, from my very favorite toy company in the entire world, I Heart Guts. They’re a toy company that specializes in, you guessed it, guts. Friendly, plushy guts. And if you’ve seen most of the twee, be-fanged PMSing Hipster-designed toys that are out there, a cushy colon or a fuzzy fallopian tube seems downright cuddly in comparison.

In any case, if you have the Plush Uterus and a young child is using it as a toy, you should take it away and apply for the refund, as the ovaries may detach and pose a choking hazard. And that would be a hell of a thing to explain to the paramedics, if you think about it.
