Wired has put together a list of the Top 10 'geekiest plush toys money can buy', with those based on HP Lovecraft's mythical deep sea Cthulhu character at number one.

Making up the rest of a list that should probably come with a 'parental guidance' warning is The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, Internal Human Organs and the Harry Potter Book of Monsters.

Wired says the geeky toys segment has been underserved until relatvely recently, with the arrival of Uglydolls and Webkinz.
