It's that time of the year again, everybody is getting ready for back to school. Well, at least everybody who is in school or has children that are in school. One thing that I think of when I think about back to school is germs. Textbooks, desks, lockers, can all be covered in germs that can make you sick. The best way to combat these germs is to wash your hands several times a day.
Giant Microbes is a company that makes microbiology fun! They have a huge variety of different adorable stuffed microbe toys, as well as mugs, apparel, key chains, hand washing kits, and much more. They even have holiday themed microbes for Father's Day, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Christmas, Halloween, and Graduation.
Their products are great for science nerds (like myself), teachers, doctors, nurses, medical students, or children learning about germs. They could even be given as a gag gift or a funny get well soon present. Giant Microbes doesn't just cover the basic microorganisms either, they have over 150+ designs, so you will be sure to find the perfect microbe for the occasion.
Their designs include cells of the body, probiotic creatures that improve health, philanthropic microbes that make bread and yogurt, aquatic amoebas and paramecium, and a wide range of medical pathogens. Some of my favorites include C. Diff (Clostridium difficile), Meningitis (Neisseria meningitidis), MRSA (Multiple-Resistant staphylococcus aureus), and Trichomoniasis (Trichomonas vaginalis).
Giant Microbes sent me their Anti-Bacterial Moist Wipes to try out. These are really convenient. They come in a big canister and contain 40 large (7 x 8) moist towelettes. I like to keep these in the car, where I don't have access to wash my hands. I'm guilty of eating fast food in the car, which is bad enough, but I don't want to eat with my dirty hands, so having these to wipe my hands off with is great. The towelettes are soft and have a very nice fresh scent. I also really like how the cute little microbes are printed on the label. It's a little reminder of why I need to wash my hands and use moist wipes.
