GiantMicrobes - because germs love Halloween too! CLOSED!!!

***CLOSED!!!***




I have 4 fun & exciting announcements that I thought you would want to know about! 


#1    GIANTmicrobes has released an awesome Halloween Box with 5 mini microbes ready for trick or treating! Trick or Treat with Anthrax adorning a witch's hat, Flesh Eating with spooky, fake fangs, orange Amoeba with black mask, Black Death embroidered with a skull and crossbones, and Ebola costumed as Frankenstein with stitched mouth and neck bolts! 

Some of you may remember GIANTmicrobes because I did a giveaway with them previously a few months back in June. 
http://1caseycolette.blogspot.com/2011/06/giant-microbes-review-giveaway.html

This Halloween box was too stinking cute! Not as big as I expected but the novelty of these things are amazing.  Giana was trying to yank them out of the box as soon as I opened it. I know several people who would love to own this for themselves. I personally love Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays. The festivities, getting dressed up... and the decorations. It is just so much fun! The little Microbes are dressed up in accordance and how stinking cute are they? Who would've though plagues and germs and maladies would ever be this cute? It brings a good opportunity to talk about these things with your children - in a way that makes it easy and fun for the child. That's how they learn best after all.

#2 Their Brain Cell Petri Dish has been named a finalist in the Fat Brain Toy Awards for best of the best in toys and games! Voting will end on Nov 8: Help them get the recognition they deserve! Click here!





Fat Brain Toy Awards

CONGRATULATIONS to GIANTmicrobes! Their product was chosen as a finalist in the 4th Annual Fat Brain Toy Awards! A Fat Brain Toy Award recognizes the best-of-the-best in specialty toys and games. But the most unique aspect of this award program is that it's 100% driven by consumers - which makes winning it all the more meaningful. 



But here's a little secret...like any election, it can be influenced by a good campaign! So I encourage you to get your butts out there to vote for this product in hopes of bringing home a victory on Election Day, November 8th. The top vote-getters will receive additional national exposure when they announce the winners to the national media on November 9th.

My favorite is the black ant

And I also like the heartworm one!

Why I liked the ones that I picked- I liked the ant because it looks like the real deal and because my kids like looking at ants. I chose the tick and the heartworm because I am a dog-lover and they serve as an excellent visual reminder of why it's important to keep on top of their tick/flea meds and their heartworm pills.
