Giant Microbes Review & Giveaway! ends 7/7 ***CLOSED!!!***


***CLOSED!!!***



GIANTmicrobes® are stuffed animals that look like tiny microbes — only a million times actual size! They're humorous, educational, and fun!

Each of the GIANTmicrobes® comes with an image and information about the real microbe it represents. They make great learning tools, as well as amusing gifts for anyone with a sense of humor.
Giant Microbes and their prices:
GIANTmicrobes(R) Original (5-7" plush doll) $8.95
GIANTmicrobes(R) Petri Dish (3 mini microbes) $12.95
GIGANTICmicrobes(R) (15-20" plush doll) $29.95


But these aren't the only things they have! They have a lot of different merchandise, such as neckties, vinyl toys, hats, shirts, keychain, tattoos, and my personal favorite the Heart Boxes which look like chocolate boxes filled with mini microbes! There is a soap dispenser (like what I got) and even a christmas tree shaped box too! (The vinyl microbes make great bath toys!)


What did I choose?
The Red Ant petri dish and the soap dispenser. My opinion? I think every doctor in the world should be informed about these! I think they would all buy them. I am super impressed and think they are adorable. Honestly, I know its funny, but I really like the Sperm Cell but didn't have the "balls" to buy it! Ahahaha! I made a funny! Anyway, they are cute but I wanted to pick a young child safe plushie, and I am not quite ready to explain the bird & the bees to my five year old, so red ant it was. The fly and tick are also eerily real. I liked the red ant because they remind me of the Velvet Ant I have seen around here. Also known as the cow ant (let me google that for you) are sometimes a yellowish brown but usually bright red. You will know one when you see them because they are the biggest ants you will probably ever see. they are sometimes called the wingless wasp and have the most painful sting you don't want to experience. They are around an inch long and BRIGHT RED. You will see them, trust me. Besides that- I just liked the ants best, and the red ants are cuter than the black ants!
The Soap dispenser I got is also endearing. I like that it reminds people (not just kids) to wash their hands by reminding them of the germs that can be found in bathrooms.

It's difficult to decide on a plushie...I would like a louse or a sore throat or toxic mold or yogurt....i think!
