I don't have kids and this was not purchased for a child. It was purchased for me, a collector of oddball things who thinks that teddy bears and fluffy kittens have had their day in the world of plush toys and it is time for something different.

And here is that different thing.

Based on the microscopic world, Giant Microbes takes us on a macrocosmic trip to the world of bugs, virus, bacteria and all manner of medical related microbes. They come with a sewn in label and also a seperate label (in a variety of languages) detailing the specifics of your microbe.

Quite how they have made the humble microbe look cute is beyond me, but they have, with a well-finished plush that not only amuses but educates. And lets face it, they look kinda cool in their own way - bound to be a talking point!

The platelet is around 5 inches tall and is quite flat, thinly stuffed, with huge cute eyes! It has a velour finish and is quite squishy.

A cute, entertaining and educational toy... or a collector item!

I though this could have been a little bit more squishy but I'm not an expert on platelets, so I guess it does the trick

This is not like the normal giant microbes, as of course, platelets are not round. It's quite "flat" yet still squishy and unbearably cute.
If your child/other half is into these sorts of things, a platelet is a must have. Plus it goes nicely with red and white blood cell.
