#14 Cuddly Little Microbes (Image 1 of 14)

Who needs teddy bears and ponies when you can make stuffed versions of cute little microbes and various hostile germ invaders. These Japanese stuffed cell invaders are strangely cute.

It must be the large googly eyes. They look like they could almost be stuff found in the ocean depths like coral or shrimp. Guess it's one way for kids to learn their biology. "Don't hug little protozoa too tight hunny, he might invade your immune system, haha."

The makers of these plush odd-balls must be a Japanese pharmaceutical company. Start em young and they'll know the value of good health. And how anything can be cute in stuffed animal form.
