I've Never Put "Adorable" And "Creepy" In The Same Sentence Before I Saw These Dolls

A Russian artist/toy maker who goes by the moniker "Santani" on DeviantArt makes amazing dolls that resemble something between a Furby and an Animal Baby. Though Santani is based in Russia, she ships worldwide. To buy from Santani, visit her DeviantArt page or send her an email at email@example.com.
There's no question that Santani's toys are expertly crafted, but I can't quite pinpoint how they make me feel.
"Griffin Baby" is very Furby-like.
...or are they creepy?
"Baby Dumbo Octopus" is ostensibly a combination of, well, Dumbo and a baby octopus. Very interesting mashup.
Like, are they cute...?
"Griffin Leopard" is also Fuby-like, but with a hint of leopard tossed in there.
I'm going with cute. Like most interesting craft artists, Santani works in series. These dolls are from her "My Little Dragon" series.
"My Little Dragon: Bars dark head."
What a precious little dragon.
"My Little Dragon: Lynx."
Santani crafts the dolls using various types of plastic and fabric fur.
"My Little Dragon: Ginger."
These dolls are from her "Inari Foxes" series.
"Inari Foxes: Snowball." Yep, these are definitely cute.
What do you think?
"Inari Foxes: Oncilla."
Pretty cute, huh? In a slightly bizarre, unsettling way.
Inari Foxes: Bars
