In the Seventies, The Invisible Man helped hundreds of future doctors learn human anatomy and biology through a unique see through model. The makers of Anatomical Andy hope to accomplish similar things through a very realistic full scale model of Andy Dick.

Touch sensitive pads located throughout the model let children know what the individual body parts are and how it feels to be touched there.
This multi-use toy will help children develop their sense of discovery and imagination. One metal fork-shaped tool comes in each package with a booklet of “what ifs.” According to the manufacture’s webpage, no child will be able to resist poking things with Forky. A hefty price tag comes with this toy but that will certainly be overlooked as every kid on the planet will want to get their hands on Forky and see what happens if it gets stuck in an electrical socket.
The Fucking Book
Kids are never too young to learn good English skills and usage. That’s why child psychologist Chloe Weistener wrote the newest child rearing book “The Fucking Book.” This book will let parents and children walk trough simple sentences designed to increase the children’s profanity and proper usage. According to Dr. Weistener “it’s never too early to start using ‘shit’ and ‘cumsucker’ in every day conversation.”
