Now this little fellow looks very colourful doesn't he? Well don't let that pretty colourful face fool you. This is one nasty little beast. This is the Giant Microbes Original Smallpox Variola Virus.
Did you know that in 1967 an astonishing 15 million people contracted small pox and after a global campaign and vaccinations carried out by the world health organisation it was irradiated and confirmed 'dead'?
Small pox was gone, but on a plus side you can get your very own version right here in all his cuddly glory.
This would be a perfect learning tool or for anyone wanting to add to their Giant Microbes Collection.
Giant Microbes are plush versions of actual microbes, cells and organisms. The main difference is that they are around 1 million times the actual size and they are cute and cuddly.
They all come in various sizes but on average they are as follows
Original Giant Microbes: 12-20cm
All the plush microbes are manufactured from new materials and are made from polyester. They are surface washable by using a sponge with water and soap. Then you can just leave them out to dry. Please don’t put them in a tumble dryer, they will not like it.
Every Giant Microbe product either meets or exceeds all United States and also European standard, guidelines and safety laws.
Giant Microbes are designed for ages of 3 years and over
All Giant Microbe products come with information including fun, educational and fascinating facts about the microbe in question. This is either attached with an information card or on the reverse of gifts boxes.
