I received 3 GIANTmicrobes from www.stortz.ca They were the regular size of Nerve Cell, Amoeba, and Bird Flu. They are very soft cuddly little creatures that come with their very own fact sheet that explain a little about each one. Sadie fell in love with them all. Although she didn’t really understand those particular ones I did show her the ones that she would know about on their website such as the common cold, sore throat and cough.
These are great collectibles and a perfect teaching tool for parents when their child comes down with a sickness. There are different categories and each one has their own popular favourites. They have a health category with the common cold, flu, stomach ache and more. The corporeals with blood cells, brain cells, fat cells and more. The infirmaries with chickenpox. staph, MRSA and others. Maladies category has bad breath, kissing disease, pimple and more. And I could go on and on. There really is nothing you wouldn’t be able to find.
They also have a new one for the swine flu…a great tool to teach kids ways to prevent H1N1. Giantmicrobes also come in Gigantics size and also petri dishes that have 3 minis. A very cute toy to have around.
Check them out and see all the GIANTmicrobes they have to offer. The kids will love them and might even be able to use them for school projects.
