A box with 5 cute but deadly Giant Microbes. The set includes 5 disease plush: 

Black Death
In 1347 the Black Death (then called the “pestilence”) arrived in the city of Messina in Sicily. By 1352, 25 million people, a third of Europe’s population, were dead.

Smallpox
Smallpox is a deadly disease cause by the variola virus. From ancient Egypt and Greece, to China and the Americas, it has killed countless millions for centuries.

Typhoid Fever
After a week or two incubation period with Salmonella typhi, Typhoid Fever strikes causing hemorrhagic red spots on the chest and abdomen, ulceration of the intestines, and an extremely high fever that can last over a month. 

Spanish Flu
There were four influenza pandemics in the last century. The 1918 Spanish flu was the mother of all pandemics in two ways: it was the deadliest, and, remnants of that viral strain led to the other outbreaks.

Cholera
When this water-borne bacteria pursues its victims, it produces a toxin that attacks the lining of the small intestine. The stomach-churning discomfort is vaguely reminiscent of the pangs of lovesickness, followed by unrelenting diarrhea and life-threatening low blood pressure.

Size of each microbe: 2-4″
