Heads Are Rolling In Ormond Beach, Florida

ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Heads are rolling in Ormond Beach, Florida – literally.

That’s because toy creators Garith Pettibone and his girlfriend, Shiva Rodriguez, have created Headless Historicals, a toy line that only sells dolls of famous people who have been decapitated.

The dolls, which include Marie Antoinette and dancer Isadora Duncan, sell for up to $375.

Customers can even create a custom design of themselves or a friend with their noggin knocked off either by axe, sword or guillotine.

Pettibone says he and Rodriguez have always been fascinated with history and horror and thought it would be nice to bring the two passions together via toys.

However, Pettibone is the first to admit his creations will probably not show up in a history classroom anytime soon.

Says Pettibone: “I don’t know if they would allow them in with regulations in schools the way they are today.”
