The Franciscanus Lobulo Toy is a reversible, handmade leather plush toy that you can literally turn inside out. Internal organs come inside the toy, so you can literally play dissect-the-monster.

The Franciscanus Lobulo Toy is anatomically correct, with a large intestine and heart contained in its body. To dissect Franciscanus, you must enter through his rear-end. Although I find this toy quite disturbing, it is a little humorous!

Implications - There has been a developing fascination with medical imagery, which can be attributed to the popularization of medical shows such as Grey's Anatomy or Private Practice. Toys that introduce medical dialect to children in a fun way will be embraced by adults who consider these toys to be of personal interest.
