I don’t know if you were the kind of kid that shaved Barbies bald, drew pentagrams over their eyes, sawed their arms off and hung them from ceiling fans, but I certainly was. I was always disappointed when my toys were nothing more but a hollow plastic shell. Chalk it up to childhood curiosity.
Jason Freeny, a Maryland-based designer has turned this morbid curiosity into a revenue stream, taking these childhood toy favorites, sculpting their grotesque insides, and then charging between $1K and $8K for each sculpture. To offer you a pun, that’s a lot of bones to spend on a lot of bones. The end result is slightly whimsical, slightly morbid, and super campy. So if you are a nostalgic type with an eclectic apartment, you might consider adding one of these cute little bastards to your decor.
