Giant Microbes giveaway

UPDATE: Adam H. won and should have received an email from me.

There's a truly staggering selection of adorable plush maladies and vermin at Giant Microbes (below you can see Flea, Giardia, and Mono/Kissing Disease):






There's also a large selection of vinyl creatures:



And lots of merchandise:



I have two creatures to giveaway. For a chance to win a Tick and Hay Fever, comment on this post and make sure your comment includes your email so I can get in touch. One comment per person, and I'm sorry, but this contest is limited to USA residents. I'll pick a winner the evening of Sunday, April 24th.

(And if you're into Facebook, you can follow Giant Microbes here.)

  14. I love the giant microbes! I'd love to put one in my office next to the mandatory handwashing stations they've started setting up. Not that I wasn't already religious with washing my hands before that, I just find it funny/gross other employees didn't feel working in a cancer/hematology center wasn't enough encouragement to maintain good hand hygiene.

  37. My 4.5 yr old is now obsessed with these ever since he got one at the science museum. He talked me into ordering 4 more. He was so excited when they came & was so thrilled with the catalog that it took it with us to show everybody. If he had his way I would order them all, maybe if I win the lottery LOL. brennagutell@yahoo.com I have my fingers crossed.

  39. My son Daniel, who is almost 8 years old, has been collecting over 5 years using his allowance money and gifts. He has over 100 of them in all sizes. He wants to be a microbiologist when he grows up. These are the new Spring release which he would love to have! He has Chagis already so it's perfect these two are two of the three in the Spring release pack!
