Valentine’s Day just passed, and if you failed to appropriately surprise your loved one, you can still do something special. The Unemployed Philosophers Guild sells plush Little Thinkers dolls for just 18.95 USD, and their 28cm (11 Inch) Van Gogh comes with a special feature: it has a detachable left ear that you can gift your significant other, just like Van Gogh did. Nothing says I love more than a severed ear!
“The tortured artist Vincent van Gogh can now be tortured just a little bit more,” reads the doll description. “Like our other Little Thinker dolls, Vincent stands approximately 11″ tall and is superbly crafted. Unlike our other Little Thinker dolls, the Vincent van Gogh doll has a unique feature: he has a removable ear! That’s right, his ear is Velcro-backed so you can have hours of twisted fun removing van Gogh’s ear and sticking it back on again.”
