When I saw this I just had to get it as I feel that no self-respecting Giant Microbes collection would be complete without the Giant Microbes Sleeping Sickness Trypanosoma Brucei. I didn't even know that this existed.
Now, I have this, in fact I am full of these little eel fish type wriggly things. I know this because all I ever want to do is sleep and I am sure that there are many people that can relate to this.
Now, normally, these little fishy things are found in Africa and is passed on to humans by flies. Yak! So I am not sure how I have contracted this. But I definitely have it. Jazzy Robot has it as well which explains why he is so lazy all the time.
On a plus side, last year there were only an estimated 10,000 cases of this disease and that is the lowest ever. So it looks like this is on the way out. But I do still have it. In fact, I am going to rest my eyes for a minute or 60 right now.
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.
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.
