Who ever managed to get this past the discussion stage and actually into production has a reality distortion field.
Needies are interactive plush dolls inspired by codependent, high-maintenance relationships.
Totally attention-starved, they compete with each other for human affection — or, getting touch, as they like to say.
When you give Needies touch (by hugging and squeezing them), they will return your kindness with songs and shameless flattery.
But remember that Needies always know when other Needies are getting touch! If one Needie is getting touch while others are neglected, the unloved Needies will conspire to take its place.
Does that actually sound appealing to anyone? Even in the picture on the website, the woman looks terrified by the things, driven to the point of insanity by the demanding Needies.
PS: If I wasn’t clear enough, this is a fake product.
