What Are Giant Microbe Stuffed Toys?
Big Stuffed Animals That Look Like Tiny Microbes!
Giant Microbes plush toys are the products of GIANTmicrobes, a toy company based in Stamford, Connecticut. Toy designer Drew Oliver founded the company in 2002, and since then has created a HUGE line of designer plush stuffed toys resembling microbes and other organisms.
Each of the 5" to 7" long soft toys is designed based on the electron microscope images of real-life microbes, and comes packaged with a picture of, and information about, the real-life microbe that it represents.
Giant Microbes are cute, fun, and - last but not least - educational! They make great toys and collectibles for kids of all ages.
