Microbes are everywhere, and instead of shunning them, we can actually play with them! We are talking, of course, about GIANTmicrobes, a line of stuffed toys that look like microbes that come from various sources. They are guaranteed to be fun and educational at the same time.
Depending on the type and size (there are three sizes: standard, mini, and gigantic) of the GIANTmicrobes, the price can be as low as $9.95 and as high as $19.95.
Who Would Buy This?
Parents who want their kids to brush up on their science subjects, particularly on the types of microbes, are sure to be interested to buy these GIANTmicrobes for their kids. However, people with a sense of humor will also find these stuffed toys to make great presents. Imagine giving a “Kissing Disease” stuffed toy to a couple of friends, or maybe even a “Hay Fever”. That is bound to be a gift that the recipients will never forget!
Things We Like
We are definitely impressed with the extensive selection of GIANTmicrobes stuffed toys. There are 14 categories, and over a hundred GIANTmicrobes to choose from, as well as other GIANTmicrobes-related merchandise. We bet that most of you have never heard of stuffed toys such as Ebola, The Flu, Herpes, Mosquito, Bad Breath, Dust Mite, Salmonella, Mange, Bird Flu, Algae, Brain Cell, Malaria, and Staph. Well, you can have them – and lots more – from GIANTmicrobes.
The educational bit comes with the information packet that comes with each GIANTmicrobe. There are images and a fact sheet pertaining to the microbe that the specific toy supposedly represents. Kids will no doubt find themselves becoming more and more interested with the different types of microbe. That’s why it’s a good idea to collect them all, or as much as you can. Who knows, you may just be grooming a future microbiologist!
As far as humorous gifts go, these are definitely going to be wonderful presents. Of course you have to be tasteful about your choices in order to make sure you do not offend anyone.
Things We Don’t Like
In order to collect all the GIANTmicrobes, you may have to dig really deep in your pockets, since the whole lot is going to cost quite a mint.
We cannot find any information regarding the applicable warranty terms for GIANTmicrobes.
Is It Worth The Money?
Educational and fun. These two elements, when found in toys, are already enough to mark them as good investments. While it is true that some GIANTmicrobes may be more expensive than others, there is no denying that the benefits far outweigh the costs.
Where Can I Buy?
The GIANTmicrobes are available directly from the GIANTmicrobes site. But you can also find it in other online retailers and merchant sites. A good example of such a site is Amazon.
Perfect for kids and adults alike, the GIANTmicrobes are guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face, while teaching more than a thing or two about microbes.
