My Review:


 My daughter and I must have spent a good hour on the GIANTmicrobes website learning about all of the different microbes. The website features an image of an actual microbe under the microscope and the plush stuffed animal that goes with it. We had so much fun reading about them and then giggled when we saw how much the microbes look like their stuffed animal! After going through each and every one, we finally narrowed it down to the one we liked the best, “Kissing Disease.” This adorable microbe has been an excellent conversation starting at out house. My daughter is always so enthusiastic to explain to people what it is and the facts that she has learned about it. It puts a smile on my face ever time I see her mention the microbe to someone and educate them on the “kissing disease.” What more could a mother ask for!? This has been a wonderful educational and fun stuffed animal and I am so glad to have discovered this company. There are so many different uses for these microbes and would be a great gift for a science teacher (I’m already thinking ahead to teacher appreciation day, hehe). I have included more information on our microbe and some pictures down below, enjoy!

  1. These are so cute Its hard to believe something like microbes can be made cute I like the common cold he just looks extra adorable

  2. These are really cool. I’m not a kid anymore, but am considering shopping for them because they are cute and I can learn some interesting facts. I don’t care for the cancer one though, I’ve lost loved ones to cancer and don’t find that one the least bit cute. Other than that one, I’d collect them. It cracks me up that they even have a “fat cell” one. Are they all actually 1 million X actual size?

  3. I think we would like the common cold or the flu or maybe earache, it would be good to have one that people get a lot for my kids to learn about. Such a unique idea!

  4. These microbe stuffed animals are so cool looking, I like that they come with a fact sheet so it can be an educational gift, and they are really cute and its neat how they show what the microbe looks like under a microscope 🙂

  5. I think it’s so funny that you chose Mono because that’s the same one my friend has. I had no idea about these little (or big?) guys until she showed me one. We too spent a long time on their website looking at all the different kinds and microbes. I never got around to picking my favorite.
