From websites:

Make no bones about it — this cookie cutter/stamper is scarily good.

You can use the cutter to cut your cookie dough and then use the reverse to stamp a skeleton onto your "gingerdead" man.

Don't be frightened — it's so easy to use.

14cm (5.5") long.

My new best friend is a drone

His name is Joggobot and he's ready to go running with me anytime, anywhere.

The downside is that he can only go for 20 minutes before he (figuratively) runs out of gas.

No worries, that's only a matter of further iterations.
