Meet Anatomic Anna and Andy, dolls with removable organs

It's a shame that these didn't exist when my daughter was a little girl. I think she would have loved playing with them.

Why? Because these unusual dolls have removable organs.

Designed for 4 to 12 year olds, Anatomic Anna and Andy are the brainchildren of a London-based homeschooling mother who wanted to further her kids' STEM education but could only find anatomical models made for medical students. So, she made her own.

Through her company, Little Boffins – Learn Through Play, she's kickstarting the two dolls. One doll, either male or female, costs £50 (about $64).

By the way, I couldn't help but notice that they resemble American Girl dolls. So, I checked their height. Like AG dolls, Anna and Andy also stand 18" tall. Given that, I'm guessing AG doll clothes will fit this gut-spilling duo too.

Thanks, Joyce!
