GIANTmicrobes Penicillin Review and Giveaway

Recently my family had the opportunity to try out our very own GIANTmicrobe. It was a big hit as soon as it arrived. My kids have gotten a kick out of it. It came at just the right time too. I'm learning all sorts all cool things in Anatomy and my kids have enjoyed looking at pictures of different organisms and cells. I'm so happy that they could see what a cell looks like in a much more child friendly way. It has been a great experience for the entire family. We got to teach them a lot from it.

About GIANTmicrobes:
Founded in 2002, their mission at GIANTmicrobes Inc. is to produce unique and interesting gifts for children and adults alike. Offering dozens of stuffed toys and other products, GIANTmicrobes has created a fun and easy way for everyone to learn more about common, and not so common, health problems, viruses, and diseases. So whether you're interest is educational, medical, or just plain old entertainment, they're your number one source for all things microbial! 

This is such an adorable way to teach our children about health and the human body. There are many different GIANTmicrobes to choose from and we had a hard time deciding. Obviously getting chlamydia was out of the question. But Meningitus, Rotavirus, Cancer, and the Flu were high on our list.

I wanted to teach them that even though there are illnesses, we have these amazing treatments such as Penicillin which combats illness. This is a great learning system and we had a lot of fun. Our Penicillin arrived with a tag attached with additional information on Penicillin. It was great to be able to use that information to explain it better to my kids.
