Some of the more impressive ones include production puppet Coraline in her star sweater from the film Coraline, as well as the Other-Mother in both friendly and evil forms.
Items up for grabs include the Zombie Judge from ParaNorman, as well as props such as Mitch's Van.
There are even some items available from Boxtrolls, the newest film from the company. These include Eggs and the Boxtrolls as well as their boxes. It also includes Snatcher from the same film.
Laika is a fairly young production company that specializes in quirky stop motion films. They've only released three films so far but they have all been met with critical acclaim and commercial success. Although the movies are geared for children, they're all a little bit darker than your average Disney fare.
