I've gone ahead and coping the original review here for your viewing pleasure, but you can also see the original post HERE
These are the cutest things! For my review from Giant Microbes I received 2 Giant Microbes. They are so adorable!
The concept of Giant Microbes is to teach children (Or anyone) about real microbes. Each Microbe is made to actually resemble a microbe. When you receive your Microbe, each one comes with an image and information about the real microbe that it represents.
For my review I received the Gangrene microbe and the Cough microbe.
Isn't he adorable? With these 2 pictures you can see the real Gangrene and the GiantMicrobe's Gangrene. I can definitely see the resemblance.
Giant Microbe's are seriously the best way to learn about all sorts of microbes.
Information about Gangrene: "Wet Gangrene occurs when infection accompanies the interrupted blood flow. Bacteria such as clostridium perfringens, which produce toxic gases that can bubble up under the skin, are often implicated."
Before receiving my Gangrene Giant Microbe, I knew nothing about Gangrene.
I also received the Cough Microbe. Before owning this Microbe I knew nothing about the cough! Now I do!
The Cough is just too cute! (doesn't that sound funny!)
Again; Can't you see the resemblance?
Here is a little more info about the Cough: "Coughs are very common and can be triggered by a variety of factors including smoking, allergies, and even heartburn (as well as more serious conditions such as asthma, tuberculosis,congestive heart failure,and lung cancer.) But many coughs, particularly in young children, are caused by microbes."
Microbes are the perfect way to teach your kids about diseases and other ailment's. Not only are these little guys educational, but they are also cute!
There are also GIGANTIC Microbes available! They are the cutest! I have always loved things that are over sized, and these are drastically over sized! I love them!
I really think this one is adorable; It's the White Blood Cell.
There are also Vinyl Dolls available! They are really adorable!
There are several different figures available!
Overall, Giant Microbes are awesome!
I really recommend checking them out! You can connect with Giant Microbes on Twitter and Facebook!
