Cute things with big pointy teeth make me leery. On the one hand, you kinda wanna pet them, but on the other hand, you may have to make a visit to the emergency room shortly there after. I'm glad that at the zoo they make it pretty hard (though not impossible) to snuggle the dangerous creatures, otherwise I would be on the news a lot and I think my insurance company would drop me.
Lavabear from Nathan Hamill is quite adorable in vinyl form, though he looks a little bitey. Being that he is an inanimate object the threat of evisceration is probably minimal, so I'm gonna go ahead and label him safe. This fellow will be an exclusive for 3DRetro at San Diego Comic Con and is limited to 125 pieces.
