Idealized Body Parts

A whole body made of 3D idealized valentine-heart-like organs

I'm guessing that a valentine heart is a 2D representation of a 3D idealized human heart -- two tear drop shapes twisted and merged together. So why doesn't someone make a whole human body out of idealized versions of all the organs? It would be an educational toy for kids, and we might get a bunch of new holidays out of the deal.

I did one of these and it described me as *dangerous* :) http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/

       Idealized Body Parts   

       (Apologies to the Scarecrow)   

       O, we'd be Holidaying
Once a week or daily
When this new trend starts,
And our calendars would creak
With icons from our physique,
Those Idealized Body Parts
  

       We could have a Brainy Think Day,
To remember what the wise say,
Folks like Plato and Descartes,
And a day for the uvula
Might be the thing to move you-la
With Idealized Body Parts
  

       It would be great to commemorate
The hallux or the 'nads
Celebrating parts we didn't know we had
With this ideal organ fad
  

       Your sternum and your coccyx
Might be among the top picks
On festive anatomy charts
But I bet the biggest talkers
Would be greeting card hawkers
For Idealized Body Parts

       I dunno. I'm sure I've seen a "surgeon" game for kids that involved removing idealized body parts from the "patient."

       It's called "Operation", I played it recently. It's been around since the seventies and still sells because the kids love pretending to pull organs out of people. It's a very Halfbakery idea really - file under 'board games'.
