Not so long ago, nearly everyone suffered from Chickenpox, which causes a blistering skin rash. Shingles, or the herpes zoster virus, is the aftermath of Chickenpox. Shingles normally manifests on the face or around one side of the body and typically resolves after 2 – 4 weeks. If you know someone unlucky enough to catch it, give them a Giant Microbe Shingles to scratch instead of their spots! Giant Microbes are also excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology while using a fun, hands on approach.
Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.
Shingles is 180 x 110 x 160mm and is made of short-pile polyester plush in yellow with a red frill, with polyester filling and plastic eyes.
