It's not real, it's plush – phew!
In space no one can hear you go ‘aww, innit cute!’ But here on Earth they can because one of the most terrifying critters in the universe is now available in cute(ish) plush form. Game over, man!
Yes, sci-fi fans, the Alien Facehugger Plush
is a squishy tribute to the legendary embryo-implanting parasitoid from the Alien franchise. Afraid? You should be because thanks to a flexible wire skeleton
you can bend its elongated fingers around your face. ‘Mum, look what happened to me last night!’
Of course the Alien Facehugger Plush won’t really tighten its tail around your neck in order to render you unconscious whilst simultaneously implanting an embryo via its icky proboscis, but you can always pretend that… hold on, this doesn’t feel like love building up in our chest. Aarrrghhhh!!!!!
