This Halloween look at some of the scariest things in the world- GIANT Microbes! You can hold Ebola or the Black Plague in your hand, a million times their actual size. They are cute, fun, and even educational.
About GIANT Microbes
These plush organisms and cells are represented a million times their actual size. They are humorous, fun, and collectible- with over 150 different microbes and cells to pick from. Plus each Microbe includes a printed card with educational and fascinating facts. They come in four sizes: 5-inch Originals, 12-inch XL, 2-foot Gigantics, and 3-inch Minis in gift boxes and keychains. These little guys make great gifts for students, teachers, doctors, health professionals, and anyone else with a sense of humor.
This adorably spooky kit comes in a pumpkin box and holds: Black Death, Ebola, Anthrax, Flesh Eating, and Amoeba. These crazy microbes even dressed for the occasion. Black Death is sporting a skull and crossbones, Ebola is Frankenstein, Flesh Eating is a vampire, Amoeba has a black mask on, and Anthrax is wearing a witch hat. These Microbes all have informative cards attached to them as well as a string to hang them up. Mine are hanging throughout the house adding to my Halloween decor. Except the Flesh Eating Microbe who is hanging in my car.
As well as the Halloween Kit , GIANT Microbes offers other neat kits such as Plagues From History, Vampire Snacks, and Zombie Attack. All three of which have a Halloween vibe. Plagues From History contains Black Death, Smallpox, Typhoid Fever, Spanish Flu, and Cholera. Due to the severity of these plagues, they have marked our history. Vampire Snacks has a Heart, Red Blood Cells, white Blood Cells, and Plasma in it. Zombie Attack includes large Zombie Virus, mini Flesh Eating, Brain-Eating Amoeba, and Black Death.
These kits were so cute and informative. I Home-school my three kids and GIANT Microbes offered us a novel hands on way to teach about microbes. These are science and history combined. The informational tags were cool, and then you can look up more about the microbe and really take your time learning about the Plagues and cells you have in front of you as a plush toy. These are great for visual and tactile learners. After the lesson my children picked their favorite Microbes and got to keep them. They really liked looking at the microscopic picture of the microbe and comparing it to the toy. I think this was a fun way to educate them, and they really enjoyed learning about these microbes.
If you do not need a kit, but just need a gag gift, or a specific microbe, you can buy them individually. Maybe your graduate needs a brain cell, or your best friend needs some diarrhea as a joke. You could even give the love of your life a Heart! With 150 choices there really is something for everyone.
