The Asylum: save these poor mistreated toys

Defenseless toys have only one escape from the cruelty of humans: insanity. Want to help them? Enter The Asylum and find the correct treatment to cure each one. Will you give them the Rorschach test, analyse their dreams or watch them paint and play music? Travel deep into the patients mind and discover why Kroko the crocodile is paranoid, or why Lilo the hippo is obsessed with a jigsaw puzzle.The mentally ill toys were created by Martin Kittsteiner, a toy-maker from Hamburg, following a joke between himself and his girlfriend (a fan of soft animals). Kittsteiner hopes his creations will help children suffering from mental illnesses.
