Battered and maimed characters as bedtime cuddle toys for kids? You bet!
If these characters look familiar, you must have heard the annoyingly catchy tune of the Dumb Ways To Die rail safety message tune created by Metro Trains. For those completely unaware, take a few minutes to watch the video below (and prepare to be humming the tune for a while after!).
