Here’s a phrase you probably never thought you’d hear: “Ebola toy.” But yes, there is a company, Giant Microbes, that sells a big stuffed Ebola virus. And this week the company said it’s actually sold out (take a guess why).
Here’s what the stuffed Ebola toy looks like:
The product page describes Ebola as “the T. Rex of microbes” and a “fearsome frontpage disease,” as well as providing a couple of facts about Ebola and how it’s spread.
But now the Ebola toys on the Giant Microbes site are out of stock. The company’s president of marketing said in a statement, “We are currently out of stock worldwide. We have continued to sell out a number of times over the last couple of months.”
