What's inside counts

If gore is what you’re after this Halloween, Gus Gutz just might be the man you’re looking for. This bizarre plush toy by Rumpus looks rather normal with his velvety skin and plain white T-shirt. But underneath, he’s 25 inches of gruesome fun. Gus has an extra-wide big red mouth that kids can reach into and pull out all his internal organs: liver, spleen, stomach, heart, pancreas, kidneys, lungs and even two super-long pink intestines. In the name of science, Gus and his Gutz come with a huge fold-out anatomy chart. The doll comes with light or dark skin and costs about $20. Get him at most toy and novelty retailers, or online at www.amazon.com, which recently merged with www.toysrus.com.
