Charles had an entire conversation in a Stockholm restaurant about loving and cuddling his Lyme’s disease. The looks we were getting were incredible. He was talking about his new stuffed animal, Lyme’s disease, a green coiled furry critter with two black eyes, created by Giant Microbes.
Charles is a stuffed animal lover! He has gone through stages and fixations with various companies, like Steiff and Ugly Dolls, but now, he is obsessed with Giant Microbes. Obsessed is the accurate term, since Charles now has 35 of them!
I find the company (and concept) to be absolutely genius. The stuffed microbes are adorable, resembling tiny microbes – “only a million times actual size.” Each microbe comes with their own informative card that is both educational and silly (most of the descriptions leave me learning and laughing).
Knowing that Jeff and I are trying to get pregnant, Charles gave Jeff the sperm cell and the egg cell for his birthday. Not a subtle hint.
These stuffed microbes are great gifts for kids of all ages (even adults). Crazy fun, educational toys and a brilliant product for all!
