I'm of two minds - sure, this is a bit silly and extravagant. And yet, I could see giving one as a gift (maybe as a somewhat elaborate gag). Or as a doll set of a family (assuming they can be fabricated of more robust material). There're possiblities to be sure.

It's pricey but a good gift idea to turn a favourite facebook post into a 3D memory.
