If you’re yet to see the latest installment in the Toy Story franchise, Forky is the result of a craft project at toddler Bonnie’s kindergarten.

Created out of a plastic spork, he has uneven googly eyes and pipe cleaner arms.

Next’s costume consists of a black and white all-in-one, with a red print designed to resemble Forky’s bendable arms.

It comes with four masks, showing the character’s various expressions.

The wonky faces are supposed to be cute – but unfortunately, people seem to be finding them quite unsettling over on Twitter.

One person wrote: “Look at this Forky costume. Have you ever seen anything more terrifying in your life?”

Another disturbed tweeter said: “Nightmare-inducing Forky costume.”

“I’ve officially seen the devil,” and: “This is what a serial killer would wear,” read other messages.

One joked: “Imagine waking up and the first thing you see is your child hovering over you wearing this.”

Think you can handle putting your little one in the get-up?

It’ll set you back £23, and you can buy it in sizes 3-4 years, 5-6 years and 7-8 years.

To be fair, Halloween is only three months away.

Meanwhile, a savvy mum turned a shower curtain into a makeshift paddling pool to keep her son cool at the beach.

This woman has praised a bargain 85p Aldi body wash for soothing her son’s painful eczema.

And another mum was raging after her mother-in-law wrote her a “patronising” list of what to pack for her children on holiday.
