New art exhibit gives kids' favourites an extremely dark twist

Christmas is fast approaching, and for parents that often means a mad dash to get hold of this year's must-have toy. However, one designer has come up with some creations that aren't likely to be on any kid's Christmas list – we hope.

An inventor and engineer has created a range of products in the style of a popular toy brand but with some very non-child friendly themes. They're going down very well on social media, but we wouldn't recommend these to put under the Christmas tree (if you're actually looking for a Christmas gift for a young human, I'd suggest you'd be better off going for something like a Nintendo Switch).
