The Coarse Toys 'False Friends in Pain' edition are rather gruesome pieces. The toys feature a venomous looking rabbit standing over a man surrounded by blood.

In taking regular toys and spinning them in a morbid light, 'The False Friends in Pain' edition of Coarse Toys presents the unfortunate results of violence. Seeing playthings as victims to such circumstances definitely provokes thought in both parents and children.

Implications - The two figurines come packed in wooden, screen-printed boxes that have dramatic-looking images printed on the fronts. Each box is meant to stand up differently -- one upright and the other fallen down. This portrays the toys that are inside. The bloody toys come with alphabet leaves that spell out the word coarse.
