An outfit called Nausicaa Distribution is now selling plushies in the shapes of... various statistical density functions! Cost: 10 for $140. Five are supposed to be female and five male, but I have no idea as to how the genders were chosen. You could argue that the femme-funcs have nicer, smoother curves, but the chi-square (yellow) entry has a rather unsightly hump in the middle, while the continuous uniform (lilac) one in the back has no curves at all! Still, four of the five male-models do have rather lengthy, er, protuberances of one sort or another, so maybe there is some method to the matching madness.
