Sorry to the science buffs out there. I thought this toy was really cute (on another site)and then I found out what it was:
Maybe I won't get that for my friend's new baby. It could be worse - they do a syphilis one!

I think they're great - we got a bookworm given to us when DS was born, that's a bit more appropriate than one of the venereals though!

I love them (but yeah, maybe not the most appropriate gift for a new baby unless it has geeky parents ). I'm planning on giving my DD the giant brain cell for Christmas... she already has every soft toy animal known to humankind, but I know she'll totally love the idea of a brain cell!
A friend of mine gave some to her dad who is a microbiologist and he thought they were great too.

Ok, the bookworm passes muster. It's kinda cute actually.

I have given them to people/baby people (they have the full range in the awesome toy store in my tiny town)..... is that a bad, bad thing?

I think they are great. I bought the bookworm one for a friend trying to write the Great American Novel. He loved it.

I was so close to buying a herpies one. It looks like a cute sun for our baby daughter. Then I realised that at some point she would take it to school and then we'd get a phone call fom the teacher who would not share our sense of humour. It'd all end badly.

The herpes looks so happy!
I think they are georgeous. The fat cell is SO cute... so is the neuron... the bookworm is georgeous too...

Is it weird I'm a little sad no one's given my boy any of these? I might have to buy some myself

I love them! Lets be honest though - if you bought one for a baby, you'd really be buying it because their parents are science geeks.
