Giantmicrobes™ has come out with three NEW plush dolls for this Spring- Hay Fever, Tick and Chagas. If you haven’t heard about Giantmicrobes yet below is more info followed by my thoughts and a giveaway!
“Giantmicrobes™ are plush dolls that look like common microbes. The product line was introduced in July 2002 and has continued to grow beyond plush toys. The combination of humor, education, and sympathy resonates with parents,children, educators, pediatricians, science buffs and many others.
Giantmicrobes™ are available in drug stores, bookstores, science museums, children’s museums, hospital gift shops, educational catalogs, and general gift shops worldwide.”
I am so excited to get to work with Giantmicrobes™ again. This time I get to introduce you to their NEW Spring microbes. There are three new ones to pick from. I picked hay fever. I picked this particularly because Moo is showing signs of having Hay Fever, and since moving into our new neighborhood I’ve had it too. So I thought it would be cute to have a giant size stuffed toy of the microbe. Plus if you look at it, it’s sooooo cute. I love the dimples.
As with all Giantmicrobes they come with a tag explaining what the microbe is. I love when toys are not just toys but learning tools. Because of how well this company puts things together I think it would be so cool for the whole collection to be in classrooms as learning tools. When I was a kid, visuals always made it easier for me to learn and I would hope these would help kids too.
Moo loves her Hay Fever Giantmicrobe. He’s round so she loves to throw him and chase after him. She even started running after min and accidentally kicking him each time she came close. This became a game to her, LOL.
Like I said in my last review, I would totally recommend this toy/company. I hope you will check them out.
