While many believe the entrails of most toys features cotton, plastic and or small Russian dolls, artist Jason Freeny has other ideas.

Freeny has created a range of sculptures of iconic toys demonstrating what they would look like with muscle, bones, guts and tissue.

"Usually I just let the shape of the toy dictate it's inner anatomy shape," Freeny told io9.

"Sometimes I will research the specific animal it is based on, although mostly it is a morphed human anatomy seeing as most characters stand upright."

LEGO, My Little Pony, a Care Bear and Barbie have all been on Freeny's operating table.

Take a look at some below, or check out Freeny's entire portfolio here.
