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 Penicillin is around 9 inches tall and is one of the taller microbes on sale. It has a velour finishe with fluffy tips.
A cute, entertaining and educational toy... or a collector item!

I bought this for my son's birthday, he's only 1 but it's good to get them started early on science! He really likes it, but it's great for adults too, I may buy a few different ones for myself :)
Seems to be good quality and should last a long time.
