Here’s the latest Japanese novelty: miniaturized anatomical toys.

Dunno if two things make a trend but “anatomical toys” seemed to be all around. This isn’t new, of course, we all remember the “Visible Man” model by Revell, but in true Japanese mode, the idea has been miniaturized and taken to a whole new level of detail and collectability.
This one was a really cool line of tiny anatomical models of human anatomy. Sold as a blind assortment in a closed box you don’t know which one you’ll get: surprise!–it’s a pop-open stomach! Or you might get a skeleton, or a see-thru uterus with a removable fetus, or one of 15 different organs. Thanks, Mom!
