Pee-yew! Stinky. Of course if you meet someone who has this hideously adorable plushie running around in their mouth, hopefully you won’t be so mean as to say it aloud. Even so, lots of people get bad breath, and it can be caused by different things. Maybe you didn’t brush your teeth after breakfast. Or, perhaps you have some sort of bacterial or other infection in the mouth. In one case, it’s a pretty quick fix. Just brush your teeth or use mouthwash. In the other, it’s called chronic bad breath and might need a doctor’s help to fix.
Certain foods like garlic, cheese, onions and meat can cause it, as can drinking or smoking. A primary source of the problem is the tongue, where bacteria combines with old food, various cells and other nastiness. It can originate from elsewhere in the mouth, or even the nose, too. If it comes from your nose, it’s probably because you’re sick. It’s possible to determine if you have bad breath, by licking your wrist and then sniffing the dried saliva. But going to a doctor if you think you have it is the best course.
This fun little plush microbe is dark green with big black eyes. It tries to look cute, but we all know where it comes from. He has a tag too, that talks about how you can get him, where he comes from, and how you can deal with him. So, if your mom tells you to brush your teeth, or your friends tell you your breath stinks, now you’ll know why!
Giant Microbes are perfect for teachers, parents and kids interested in science or humorous gifts. Each microbe comes with an information tag including scientific name, an image of the actual microbe, and a mini history and science lesson. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
