GIANTmicrobes: A Review

I was asked a while ago now if I would like to review some products for GIANTmicrobes. When I looked at their products, I had to say yes! They have all kinds of plush, personified renditions of microscopic critters. And they're pretty cute!

Pizza Dough- a lesson in yeast

The FLL kids are discussing food safety for their project- we try to avoid this guy known as E. Coli.

Any guesses? The hollow middle gives him away- red blood cell!


Founded in 2002, our mission here at Giantmicrobes Inc. is to produce unique and interesting gifts for children and adults alike.Whether your interest is educational, medical, or just plain old entertainment, we're your number one source for all things microbial.  

Seriously, how much fun is microbiology with these guys? GIANTmicrobes has sets of plush dolls too which are theme oriented- a love box is full of all the love kind of diseases. Very amusing teaching tool. And how many households can boast E. Coli dolls? My personal favorite is the petri dish option.

I would LOVE to review some of these products! We are knee-deep into cells right now.

So exciting. One of the best things that we've done was make a jelly model of a cell-this would cause similar enthusiasm. I must see if these are stocked in the UK.

I love the red ant petri dish they sent me, now I get to review the Halloween box. So excited! Nice post- love how you worked in the whole pizza and yeast and food safety! Adorable.

Those cells are so cute. May have to plan a pizza unit and get the yeast. Here is your second tag on the meme. http://everydaysnapshots.blogspot.com/2011/09/homeschooling-in-ten-but-i-only-see.html
