Genpets are the coolest toys to scare your friends

Many little girls had Barbie dolls and other random baby dolls they would tote around, including myself. Yet I have to say, if I had one of these as a kid, I would have tossed out every single Barbie doll to get my hands on just one.

Now keep in mind I am a bit odd in that department considering I have a Living Dead Doll lying alongside my bed. It's not that I'm goth, it's that I find thing that look slightly evil or disfigured to be incredibly adorable. These strange little dolls come in little packs that are wired to have a heart monitor hooked up and also have flashing eyes that open on occasion. Even better is that they have special sound effects, which I swear sounds like the ant on Honey I Shrunk the Kids.

Every single one is made by hand completely from scratch, so it isn't a mass produced product. There are 7 different personality types among the dolls, each is linked to a different color. The animatronic version is sold for $1200 and the non-moving one for $800. The nice perk is that the creator has a DIY page on these cuties.
