Giant Microbes

Posted on May 7, 2009 Under Design


If Ugly Dolls are any standard for cuteness, then a stuffed E. coli bacterium is downright adorable. Giant Microbes, a Delaware company with a mind for the medical, creates plush stuffed toys resembling microscopic critters, viruses, and cells with enough personality to make a tapeworm look friendly. Among the categories are Corporeals, Tropicals, and (our favorite) Calamities, which include the black death, flesh-eating virus, and mad cow disease. The Petri Dish, a combination of any three microbes, makes for a perfect gift for the healthcare professional in your life, who will certainly get a kick out of these gross little cuties. No good looking cuddly for H1N1 yet though.
