Know what’s weird about being an adult? Or adult age, for that matter? You really don’t see too many casts any more. In grade school, it was like “Oh, hey, fifteen kids have broken arms and legs.” Now, it’s like, “I hope a broken arm will be enough to get you to admit you have a drinking problem.”

If these Casttoos were around during grade school, every single kid probably would have had one. The “Personal Xray” model shown here starts at $20 and is an actual image of your broken bone.

According to the Casttoo site:

“A picture is worth 1,000 words. Save your breath and explanations by showing the world what’s going on under that cast. Had a really bad break that you want to show off? Send us the digital file of your x-ray, and we’ll send you back your break in print, ready to be applied directly to your cast.”

There are about a skillion other designs to choose from as well: dinosaurs, cars, baseball, flames, holiday themes—you name it.
