Roadkill Plush Toy: Funny or Inappropriate?

I came across this toy today at Yokiddo and thought it was cute, until I noticed that it was actually created to look like an animal that has been hit by a car.

With intestines and organs sewn on the outside of the toy, I couldn’t help but wonder who the target audience might be?

Certainly not the 7, 8,or 9 year old kid who has a pet schnauzer that he/she loves very much…

While it may seem funny to the developer, anyone who has had their pet hit by a car, may not find this humorous – no matter what age group they fit into.

*As a bonus – The toy comes complete with opaque plastic body bag to keep the maggots out and attached to its twitching toe is an identity bag giving details of its demise.*
