We’ve seen plenty of cool Giant Microbes Plushes over the years, but these new Giant Microbes Plush Gift Box Sets may be the best yet. Each of these sets come with 4 or 5 tiny plush toys that are based on what the microorganism actually looks like under a microscope. Each microbe comes with a card with fascinating facts that are fun and educational, so these plushes aren’t just humorous, they’re a useful addition to your intellectual pursuits.
There are three different sets here. Most interesting is the Plagues From History that includes Smallpox, Spanish Flu, Black Death, Typhoid Fever, and Cholera. While they are provocative because of the devastating diseases they represent, they are the most intriguing designs. You’ll find the more complex and cute designs in the Ocean Dwellers and Dino Creatures sets.
