GIANTmicrobes® plushies are stuffed animals that look like tiny microbes, only about a million times the actual size! They're a humorous, educational, and fun spin on an otherwise messy subject matter. They were originally designed as a teaching tool to help small children learn about the importance of hand-washing.

  • This set includes 5 GIANTmicrobes®
  • Each plush stuffed toy comes with an image and information about the real microbe it represents
  • Fun and creative way to start the discussion about microbes as they relate to the study of microbiology
  • These unique plush stuffed animals make great learning tools and toys
  • A cute gift/reminder/warning for any college student
  • An amusing gift that is a great way to give someone a micro-organism without that pesky trip to the Doctor's office

This Bundle Includes:

  • Ebola
        - Although the origins of Ebola hemorrhagic fever are unknown, the virus was first recognized in 1976 near the Ebola river in the Congo in Africa. You do not want to get Ebola.
  • Toxic Mold
       - Stachybotrys (or straw mold) is a black, toxic fungus that first achieved recognition in the 1930’s when horses on Russian farms became sick after eating contaminated hay. More recently, Stachy has been implicated as a cause of “sick building syndrome.”
  • Anthrax
        - Though the word “anthrax” conjures up fearsome thoughts of biological weapons, anthrax is a once-common disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis.
  • TB
        - Tuberculosis, or TB, is a disease caused by the mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria. TB can infect any part of the body, but typically targets the lungs and throat.
  • Brain-Eating Amoeba
        - Brain-eating amoeba, or Naegleria fowleri to its friends, is a fearsome predator that lurks in warm fresh-water lakes, rivers, and springs. It is not technically an amoeba, but in fact can morph like a sci-fi villain into three different body shapes.

Listen, we get a lot of comments, and most of the time, it's pretty forgettable stuff; but sometimes you rise to the top like butterfat in milk. We don't recommend you base your self-worth on how often we feature your comments, but we don't expressly forbid it either.
