But Why?

The Road Kill Carpet by Studio Oooms is definitaly creative...but I don't know if it is very pleasing to the eye. Although, I am sure that the carpet would stop any guest in their tracks. It’s a warm, soft, cuddly carpet that attracts you to take a nap on it. But at the same time its a repulsive image of a car-flattened, bloody fox.

The Road Kill soft toys called Squash-Plush is even more controversial, can you imagine a kid playing with one of them? According to the official website, they are considered as boutique toys or anti-toys which are collectables. The toy characters that have been squashed flat and lies in a pool of blood and guts; organs, cracked ribs, intestines - all of them are stuffed. The toys are also interactive; you can take the blood and guts in and out of them, which are sealed into the carcass by a zip on both sides. Just unzip the belly and let the blood and gore ooze out.

Each one comes with a body bag, death certificate, a "I love roadkill" bumper sticker and toe tag. So far the collection includes: Splodge a common-all-garden hedgehog, Twitch the racoon and Grind the rabbit, their full obitsuaries are also found on the websites. There are many new exiting editions on their way...check out the website!!!
