Giant Microbes are toys designed to educate children about different illnesses, diseases and viruses in a fun way. These cute "germs" also make fun and educational gifts for adults. Here you can find small plush microbes such as Chickenpox, Kissing Disease and Swine Flu - Minis, which come in groups of 3 in an adorable petri dish and Gigantic Microbes which range from 16" - 20" in size.
When I was younger, I was an extremely sick child. I had a very weak immune system and I caught everything that went around. I constantly had strep throat, ear infections and even the flu. I also remember having mono and being very scared of what was going to happen to me. I would have loved the opportunity to of learned about these germs in an educational and fun way like Giant Microbes offers. I love how they are able to take a very serious illness and make it into a cute "germ" that helps the child to be less afraid. It's a great way for a parent or doctor to discuss these illnesses with a child.
In addition to offering individual microbes, Giant Microbes offers a variety of boxes filled with mini microbes. I fell in love with the Christmas Tree Box. It's filled with mini microbe ornaments all decorated and ready to trim the tree from their metallic golden strings! Common Cold is a bright smurfy blue festively adorned with a Santa Hat. Kissing Disease is a soft lavender who comes standing beneath her own mistletoe batting her pretty eyelashes, beware! Brain Cell is a really unique shape and he comes holding a candy cane. I love all the dark brown strings hanging down from E. coli with his cute reindeer antlers. Then there is Red Amoeba in her darling green winter scarf.
The quality of these adorable little germs is very nice. You can tell that great thought went into every detail of making these. They are cuddly soft and vivid in color. Each one has a small tag identifying the microbe. Even the eyes are two toned as some are gray, green or brown and have black pupils in the center.
Giant Microbes has a variety of fun germs for everyone. Whether it's time to speak about the birds and the bees, give your favorite Science Teacher or Doctor a gift, or educate your children - you are sure to find the perfect microbe for the job here.
