Giant Microbes


Stuffed “animal” version of E. coli, from GIANTmicrobes.

My sister sent me a link to GIANTmicrobes, a web site that sells stuffed “animal” versions of many common microbes and more. There’s quite a variety there—aside from the bacterium E. coli, featured here, they have viruses, insects, protozoans, and even prions! (That’s my favorite.)

I think anyone in the health sciences would appreciate these. Most range in price from US $6–7.

  1. Hahaha, this is great. I particularly like the Martian Life and Giardia plushies. If I wasn’t too old for this I would buy a couple 😛

    Or, I should give one to a kid and tell his parents I just gave him gonorrhea. The opportunities for fun just don’t stop with these!
