Giveaway : Giant Microbes Plushes & Vinyl Figures (ends 2/21)

Today’s Brixton Street ♥ You feature comes courtesy of Giant Microbes!

Giant Microbes are cute, wide eyed plush & vinyl figures that take the form of microorganisms that have been magnified thousands and thousands of times.  This may not exactly sound cute, but slap a little pink bow on a lil’ rolly polly egg cell and you, my friend, are very unexpectedly in cute city.  Definitely something that must be seen to be believed & luckily Giant Microbes was kind enough to send over a couple of their strangely cute & strangely Valentine’s Day appropriate Heart Boxes for us to poke and prod at!

The heart boxes come in two varieties, each with a set of five super soft, palm sized plushes inside.  “Heart Warming” ($19.95) with a sperm cell, egg cell, kissing disease, penicillin, & pink amoeba and “Heart Burned” ($19.95) with herpes, pox (syphilis), HPV, chlamydia & penicillin.

Heart Burned Box:

Each plush comes with a little hang tag that shows the type of microbe it represents (with an actual photo of that microbe so you can compare the plush to the real thing) and a short description of that microbe.  Very cute (I mean, about as cute as about anything STD related can possibly be) and also educational.

The actual construction of each plush is quite nice- very & soft cuddly with an attractive range colors and cute little beady eyes.  I especially loved the extra details on some of the plushes in the “Heart Warming Box”, the kissing disease has a lovely pair of eyelashes and the sperm & egg cells have cute matching ribbons.  Aw!

The box the plushes are packaged in looks a lot like a mini box of chocolates… but what you get inside is so much longer lasting (I know, I set that up, but I’m totally not gonna go there).   Definitely a fun quirky, idea for Valentines Day!

If the heart boxes aren’t exactly your thing, Giant Microbes also carries an extensive range of cute plushes (multiple sizes ), vinyl figures & a few other pieces of merchandise (shirts, ties, etc.).

Here are just a few of my favorite pieces from their website:

    It would amuse me to get the GiantMicrobes Stem Cell for my brother-in-law. He’s a gene research assistant and would probably get a kick out of it too — mainly it would be for his son, my cousin, though :)
