I've seen that and although i'd never do it, I actually think it is pretty cool. If you don't tell anyone, they won't know it is made from placenta and honestly, I see that as no stranger than having items made from animal skins. A placenta bear or a leather bear... both are made from what used to be a living organ. It is definitely a cute way to remember the birth and appreciate the placenta though.
I still wouldn't do it... it would just be one more thing to dust!
I plan on eating and dehydrating my placenta as well, but this I think is a bit weird. It strikes me as an odd way to 'honor' the placenta. It is believed in Chinese medicine that you shouldn't even blend the placenta raw because it somehow disturbs the energy. I don't know, it almost seems a bit counter productive to me. Kind of degrading in a way. Maybe I'm looking too far into it but I just can't see the purpose of making a placenta teddy bear.
ummm... I did a placenta print with dd2, this time we plan to plant a tree with it. But, for me the teddy bear is a bit much, my dog would move heaven and earth to get a hold of that .
I agree with the pp~ just another thing to dust
