Forget the Upside Down. It's more like inside out.

Just in time for the holiday gift-buying season, those collectible-loving folks at toymaker NECA are releasing Chia Pets based on Netflix's hit sci-fi horror series Stranger Things and a host of other beloved pop-culture staples, including Rick and Morty, Ghostbusters, Predator, Gremlins, and our personal favorite, Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy.

For Stranger Things diehards who can't get enough of Dustin's wild mane, now's your chance to own it in the form of those iconic terracotta figurines from the '80s that sprout the leafy green chia plants in a matter of weeks.

NECA, which bought the Chia brand along with the Clapper earlier this year, unveiled the new line via Nerdist, and as fans of Netflix's hit show can see, there's loads of novelty Chia fun to be had with the various licenses.

For Gizmo lovers — remember never to feed him seeds after midnight, 'cause you just might wind up with a Gremlin in the house.

On the other hand, doesn't our menacing Predator hunter look pretty funky with his new do?
