Review & Giveaway: Giant Microbes (the perfect stuffed educational toy)! - CLOSED

This giveaway has ended!
I loved my public health course in college!  Growing bacteria in petri dishes and seeing what was really lurking in salad bars forever changed my approach to life so when it comes to educating kids or young adults about microbes ("germs as we remind our toddlers"), Giant Microbes truly have to be the perfect way to accomplish the task!  These cute little stuffed microbes include everything from common health ailments  to teaching about what's in aquatic life and just about everything in between!

You could even include a heart box in a care package for your college student (The Heart Warming™ Mini Microbe Box includes these mini microbes: Sperm Cell, Egg Cell, Kissing Disease, Penicillin, and an exclusive pink Amoeba available only in this collection!, and the Heart Burned™ Mini Microbe Box includes these mini microbes: Herpes, Pox, HPV, Chlamydia and Penicillin)!



We received a flu virus and swine flu petri dish for review and I have to say this has been one of my favorite reviews!  It's been great using my Giant Microbes as a teaching tool with my kids and I can't wait to own more of these little guys!  Not only are these Giant Microbes adorable, they resemble their petri dish counterparts!  Giant Microbes are perfect for teaching tools not only for parents and teachers but also for health professionals too!


Buy It!
Giant Microbes are available online!  Purchase individually in various sizes or in sets!  You can search by common name or scientific name or look them up by category!

Win It - Giveaway Details!

Giant Microbes sent me a sore throat to send along to one lucky reader!  You won't be disappointed in this red little guy!  This giveaway will end on October 26th at 10:00PM Central.  I'll email the winner who will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen!  (US Only)

Mandatory Entry!
Visit Giant Microbes and let me know your favorite Microbe (there are so many to choose from)!
