Giant Microbes

by Evan Orensten in Design on 20 January 2006

Giant Microbes is a line of esoteric plushies that explores the scientific rather than the usual adorable or fantasy based toys. What child wouldn't want to see, hold and play with the Ebola virus, a bed bug, a flu virus, or a Giardia microbe? Your lover eat too much garlic for dinner? Their feet a bit rank? Place the bad breath or athlete's foot plushie on their pillow for a subtle hint. All microbes are based on actual organisms, blown up about 1,000,000 times. Plushies are around $5 each, and available in sets.
