Having medical problem that is not visible sucks, because people thought you are just acting out or looking for attention. A German guy named Martin Kittsteiner created plush toys that are all suffer from psychiatric illnesses. A hallucinating snake, an OCD hippo, a split personality sheep, a depressed turtle and a paranoid crocodile.

These toys come with referral, its medical record and treatment plan.

I think it's a good way of introducing non visible illnesses to kids. I hope he expands his collection soon.

These toys are just cute. Two of them are my favourites. I might give the snake to my granddaughter and the hippo to my grandson. I'm sure they would love them.(I doubt however if they would serve any educational goal at their age.)
