These awesome pregnancy models were designed in 19th century Japan and reappeared in the July 2001 issue of Geijutsu Shincho magazine. The demand for pregnancy toys was must have been overwhelming. Can’t you picture little pro-choice children demanding the chance to perform their own home abortions (Dick Cheney was a child around that time, right?). Fun!
Pro-choice kids didn’t get all the fun though. These toys also appear to be great models for the miracle of birth. The anatomical correctness instills an automatic suspension of disbelief. Just look at those stretch marks. More geisha-style birth models after the jump.
