There are also a ton of owner submitted action shots, documenting the fun that can be had with your microbes!

    I’ve got the earache. I got it from a friend as present.
    It’s so funny to say, well, I’ve got earache and got it from a friend. And then show the plush thing.

    My wife was delighted when I brought home Syphilis.

    That’s the cutest one.

    Oh I LOVE these little guys! You know they have different cells from the body too? I got the neuron for my birthday, but I’ve always wanted an adipocyte.

    Those li’l cuties have actually been around for years. I keep meaning to get ebola. A friend gave me sleeping sickness. Definitely great gifts!

    Oooo. Syphilis is cute. But herpes looks so cheerful. I can’t decide!

    What? No streptococcus plushie?

    I’m so disappointed.

    Oh there’s definitely a streptococcus plushie– I have it on my desk at work! He even has a little knife and fork.

    I also gave the Salmonella plushie to a coworker who got it and spent about a week in the hospital with it.

    I like e.coli too. That was next on my list. I love these things.

    Oh, I love Giant Microbes! I have the Ebola and krill ones myself. My friends at college and I love to throw the Ebola one at each other and say “Congratulations, you just caught Ebola!” Yeah, we’re kind of odd. 😛

    I hope they make ones of organelles. I want a mitochondrion, dammit!

    I’m totally buying some of the mini ones that come in petri dishes for some of my coworkers! Herpes is adorable!

    Is it just me, or does E. coli bear a striking resemblance to the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
