Ultrasound Baby Figurines: Why Not?

Back in 2010, I wrote about an artist who would make an oil painting of your fetus' ultrasound photo for a mere $85. Well, here's something that tops that: a custom figurine of your unborn baby, created with a 3D printer.

A company called 3D Babies will sell you this unforgettable memento for $200 to $600, depending on the desired size. (The most expensive version is life-sized. But remember that it's a fetus, so we're only talking about something 8 inches tall.)

You even select the skin-tone: light, medium or dark.

If only this had existed when my kids were in utero, I would have made my wife a charm bracelet with three terrifying shrunken babies. What a conversation starter!
