Giant Microbes Review

Spring and summer colds have got to be the worst! Your kids are ready to get out and play, and they or you come down with a cold.

I was lucky enough to win my choice of a Giant Microbe. In return of winning this fun, yet informative plush I asked if they would like for me to review it? They said, "Yes."
I chose to get The Common Cold {Rhinovirus}. I wanted to get it to push my kids to wash their hands. There were others that I thought about getting.

They have a Staph Infection Plush {Staphylococcus aureus}; Mica had a life threatening staph infection when he was 7 months. I thought that having that plush could explain some what happened to him.

I also thought about getting their new Hay Fever Plush {Grass Pollen} plush. My kids and I all suffer through allergies. Mine are off the charts!

These plush's are more then cute! They are a teaching devise!

Each plush comes with a little card that teaches you what their plush is about. Things my kids, husband and I learned about the common cold:
  • There are over 250 varieties of cold viruses. That's why it's so hard for doctors to determine what you have when you go in.
  • In the Greek language "Rhino" means nose. 
  • Rhinovirus love the low humidity months. That is why we get colds more often in the fall and winter.
  • You do not get a cold from being cold.

Both of my kids were really excited to get The Common Cold {Rhinovirus} in the mail! We sat around and talked about the common cold.

What is the best thing you can do when you or your kids get a cold?

Get lots of sleep, rest and enjoy cuddling up with your Giant Microbe plush!
