We’ve been invaded by a few little guests. They’re currently hanging out on my desk. Meet Hayfever, Tick and Chagas – the new GIANTmicrobes for Spring 2011.
Luckily, these guests are in plush form (although, I think I’ve been feeling the Hayfever big time!). If you’re not familiar with GIANTmicrobes, you can take a look at all of the plush they have to offer. Just when you think they have covered every disease and little creature, they come out with a new one.
Here’s a brief description of the new Spring 2011 line:
Hay Fever is Here!
Hay Fever is a physiological reaction to the courtship rituals of grasses, trees and weeds.
Show your allergy afflicted friends some love of their own with our new Hay Fever plush doll.
Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock…
If you frequent wooded areas it’s only a matter of time until you’re bitten.
Our tick will remind you to check carefully when you come inside.
Keep Your Eye Out For This One!
A common tropical ailment, Chagas disease is spread by the triatomine “kissing bugs” and is characterized by the swelling of one eye.
Be careful who kisses you goodnight!
