Giant Microbes Brain Cell Review and Giveaway

   Do you ever have those off days when sometimes you wish you had a little extra brain power to help you remember that thing you forgot? Well, this extra brain cell won't actually boost your memory, but it will give you something to hold on to while also teaching you something in the process.
   Giant Microbes is literally the coolest toy on the planet for nerds, science-fans, anyone in the medical profession, or anyone with a fun sense of humor! Not only do they make some seriously bad diseases seem a little less scary, some of them look downright cuddly! I don't know about you, but I think I would be alright having the Norovirus if it looked this cute and cuddly all the time!
    Not only can you find cuddly versions of the stomach flu but you can find tons of other bacteria, viruses, cells, and bugs. What is really fantastic about it is you learn something while you search. Giant Microbes actually shows you the scientific name while you are searching!
    I had a really hard time deciding what I wanted the most while browsing and I settled on the Brain Cell. Lately I have been feeling a little less on top of things. Remembering simple words has not been my forte so I figured one more brain cell might help me get things firing in the brain again. Twelve hours later Dexter ate it. I can only assume his logic behind doing this was so I would forget if I gave him treats or not so I would give him extra.
     The Brain Cell actually comes with a hang tag that has a lot of really great information inside it like: how your brain actually is made up of 100 billion little grey brain cells (neurons), and research shows that there is enough electric power flickering in your neurons to illuminate a flashlight bulb; among other things.
     What I love about the brain cell is it's made of a super soft material, but stuffed well and sewn together nicely. Apparently it is no match for tiny, razor sharp Dexter teeth, but to be fair they aren't technically dog toys, Dexter was just really sneaky and stole it.
     If you like the Brain Cell but are looking for something a little more personalized, they also carry World's Smartest Dad Brain Cell and World's Smartest Mom Brain Cell. These would make a great gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, their birthdays, or Christmas! They also have a Graduation Brain Cell if you have someone in your family finishing school and you want to show them you are proud of their achievements! You can pick up one of those with or without music (Pomp and Circumstance).
      If you haven't fallen in love with Giant Microbes yet, let me give you another chance. Enter through the Rafflecopter below for the chance to choose your own Giant Microbe!
This looks incredibly sad... and yet, I can't stop laughing.
