Got Salmonella for Christmas?

GiantMicrobes - Alimentaries

I hope nobody got salmonella or E.Coli this Christmas! I love these critters, but couldn’t find the perfect person to give these to for Christmas. They’re cute plushy reminders of the fact that we share the earth with equally destructive buggers. I heard of these GiantMicrobes stuffed toys before but just recently ran into them again at the Safe: Design Takes on Risk exhibition at the MoMa in New York City (closes January 2nd run!!).

Priced from $5.95 to $6.95, with discounts if you buy them in sets. GiantMicrobes has just added the A.I.D.S., Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, and Polio to a new line for health care professionals “to convey information about public-health diseases in a unique and memorable way.”
