Stuffed animals were a favorite part of many kids childhood.  If they weren’t part of yours then I am sorry, you were probably raised in a cult or some sort of communist commune.  You could get stuffed animals in so many varieties and they liked to hang out with you and keep monsters away at night…..ohhhh so i’ve been told…..

But recently I have a noticed that there are a ton of awesome new stuffed animals and plush toys.  They really aren’t for kids but neither is this blog so it works perfectly.  Here is a great learning tool for kids though. 


Learn all your fun diseases in adorable plush toy form.

Learn all your fun diseases in adorable plush toy form.

They are all modeled after a form of bacteria, virus or microbe.  Here is a list of some of the fun creatures involved.

  • Heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis)!
  • Salmonella (Salmonella typhimurium)
  • The Plague – black death (Yersinia pestis)
  • Mad Cow Disease(Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy)
  • E. Coli(Escherichia coli

Man and to think that I was raised my whole childhood without a HIV or Streptococcus plush toy to hold while in bed.  If you want your kid to grow up to be doctor buy them these toys.  They will be able to ace their med school because they will already know these bacteria and such from their childhoods.  Nurse,”Doctor, What is this disease this man only has 3 seconds to live”  Doc “Calm down nurse, this is Salmonella I remembered from my childhood, I had the cutest stuffed salmonella in my room” , Nurse “thanks doc but your speech to took to long and he died”, Doc “rats”

They are not all just for educational use some are just cute as hell for the reason of being cute as hell.




That thing is awesome, if I ever decide to get an imaginary friend I am going to enlist this dude for the job.
