Microbes or micro organisms are very tiny, and as the name suggests, they are microscopic, i.e., they are not visible with the naked eyes. Medical students get the opportunity to know about them and to see them actually under a microscope. But students from other fields of study rarely get this opportunity to know how these microbes look like.
Even in school its always not possible to show them through microscopes. Due to all these restrictions, students can make use of dummy microbe plush toys, almost 10 million times bigger than the original size, to learn how they look like. These giant microbes are nothing but stuffed toys that look like the original tiny microbes. These are fun to play with and educational too.
