Toy Review – GIANT Microbes
New Toys for Christmas 2014:
Microbes are everywhere, and instead of shunning them, we now can actually play with them! We are talking, of course, about GIANT Microbes, a line of stuffed toys that look like microbes that come from various sources. They are guaranteed to be fun and educational at the same time.
Who Is This For?
Parents who want their kids to brush up on their science subjects, particularly on the types of microbes, are sure to be interested in these GIANT Microbes for their kids. Teachers and doctors can use them as teaching toys, and those with a sense of humor will also find these stuffed toys make great presents. Imagine giving a “Kissing Disease” stuffed toy to a couple of friends, or maybe even a “Hay Fever”. That is bound to be a gift that the recipients will never forget!
3 and up. Some versions have small parts that pose a choking hazard for kids under 3.
Things We Like
We are definitely impressed with the extensive selection of GIANT Microbes stuffed toys. There are 14 categories, and over a hundred GIANT Microbes to choose from, as well as other GIANT Microbes-related merchandise. We bet that most of you have never heard of stuffed toys such as Ebola, The Flu, Herpes, Mosquito, Bad Breath, Dust Mite, Salmonella, Mange, Bird Flu, Algae, Brain Cell, Malaria, and Staph. Well, you can have them – and lots more – from GIANTmicrobes.
The educational bit comes with the information packet that comes with each GIANT Microbe. There are images and a fact sheet pertaining to the microbe that the specific toy represents. Kids will no doubt find themselves becoming more and more interested with the different types of microbe. That’s why it’s a good idea to collect them all, or as many as you can. Who knows, you may just be grooming a future microbiologist!
As far as humorous gifts go, these are a great and interesting option. Of course you have to be tasteful about your choices in order to make sure you do not offend anyone!
Things We Don’t Like
The collection is extensive so it will add up to collect all of the GIANT Microbes.
Depending on the type and size of the GIANTmicrobes (there are three sizes: standard, mini, and gigantic), the price can be as low as $9.95 and as high as $19.95.
We cannot find any information regarding the warranty terms for GIANTmicrobes.
Is It Worth The Money?
Educational and fun. These two elements, when found in toys, are already enough to mark them as good investments. While it is true that some GIANTmicrobes may be more expensive than others, there is no denying that the benefits far outweigh the costs.
Where Can I Buy?
GIANT Microbes are available directly from the GIANTmicrobes site. But you can also find them at other online retailer and merchant sites like Amazon.
Perfect for kids and adults alike, the GIANTmicrobes are guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s face, while teaching more than a thing or two about microbes.
