There are few words adequate to truly describe the oddness of this product:

Meanwhile, we have a lot of sympathy for any future boyfriends of this little girl:

Ah, but we’re not total cynics here at Siliconrepublic.com, so to end things on a sweeter note, here’s a pretty adorable video of some kids talking about love and Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!
