What IS a GIANTmicrobe?
GIANTmicrobes was founded in 2002, by Drew Oliver, a father of 2 and the mission at GiantMicrobes Inc. is to produce unique and interesting gifts for children and adults alike. Whether your interest is educational, medical, or just plain old entertainment, they are your number one source for all things microbial. GiantMicrobes are “giant” versions of all kinds of germs, bacteria, and microscopic critters. From Salmonella to Strep Throat each GiantMicrobe is… well, so ugly its cute!
NEW! Christmas Stocking Box includes:
Penicillin, Salmonella, Red Blood Cell, Dust Mite and limited edition Green Amoeba! Festively adorned with decorative puffs, embroidered holly, snowflakes, reindeer nose and antlers, and cute scarf and ear muffs!
The girls both went bananas over these little guys, and I have had to fight to keep them from toting them to school to show off to their friends. The Tween headed straight for Google and pulled up the real images of the microorganisms, and we were all impressed with just how much they really do look alike… minus the ear muffs and scarves of course.
GiantMicrobes are such a funny and unique gift for anyone this holiday season. You can purchase GIANTmicrobes directly from their website. Most microbes come in 3 different sizes the Original $8.95 (5-7″ plush doll), the Petri Dish $12.95 (3 mini microbes), and GIGANTICmicrobe $29.99 (15-20″ plush doll).
