It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts, and Inside Your Teddy Bear Is a Freakish Monster

Did these teddy bears swing over the bar like Inside Out Boy?


Or is it, “It’s not who you are on the inside, but what you do that defines you”? Well, what these Teddy Bears do is greatly unsettle us, so in the case of the very real photo book of freakish inside-out teddy bears, Bears, I guess either works. And I thought Teddy Ruxpin was creepy.

No, really. This is a real book that you can buy with money. It makes a gift/substitute in case you can’t find any coal to put in your naughty child’s stocking. It was created by photographer Kent Rogowski, who I assume is in a contest with All My Friends Are Dead author Avery Monsen about who can produce the most unsettling children’s book.

Here are a few more images from the book, because each bear holds a unique nightmare in its soft, cuddly body.
