Dunne and Raby’s Teddy Bear Blood Bag isn’t exactly the typical hospital purchase. However, it does serve its primary function well, and would actually make a perfect fit in a children's hospital or the pediatric wing of a health care facility.

Dunne and Raby are a London-based design team comprised of Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby. According to their website, the duo use design "as a medium to stimulate discussion and debate amongst designers, industry and the public about the social, cultural and ethical implications of existing and emerging technologies."

This Teddy Bear Blood Bag certainly does inspire discussion--is this bear morbid, or charming? Stats for Cute Hospital Disposables Trending: Older & Chilly
