Giant Microbes Plush - Genetics Box
Bring DNA, RNA, Genes, Chromosomes, and the topic of Genetics to life with our Genetics Themed Gift Box! This Genetics themed box is an exciting educational gift for friends, family, scientists, healthcare professionals, and anyone who wants to know who they are and what they are made of.
This memorable and fun gift is perfect for family, friends, students, scientists, educators, doctors, geneticists, ancestry enthusiasts and all who are curious about their own genes and DNA. Appreciate that your chromosomes store your genetic information inside cells and they consist of DNA and RNA. Thank your mom and dad for your two pairs of 23 chromosomes.
Genetics themed gift box includes:
Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is the amazing molecular double helix that contains the genetic codes for all known life. First identified in 1869 and accurately described in 1953, its very existence provides a new understanding about how life works.
99% of the DNA in every individual is identical – and indeed, much of our DNA is shared with every living creature on Earth.
The nucleus is the most prominent organelle inside the cells of animals, plants, fungi and eukaryotic microbes. Cell growth, metabolism and reproduction are all controlled by the nucleus. Enclosed by a double membrane, the nucleus contains the nucleolus and the cell’s genetic material. The nucleus is where RNA production and DNA replication occur.
Mitochondria generate energy for cells and also contain DNA and RNA. Mitochondrial DNA, or mtDNA, make up a tiny portion of your body’s total DNA, but it is distinct from DNA in the nucleus. Nuclear DNA comes from both parents, but mtDNA is passed to you only from your mother. This genetic material comes from her egg cell and can establish maternal family ties.
RNA and its molecular cousin DNA are nucleic acids that carry the genetic code. RNA, or ribonucleic acid, acts as an intermediate messenger for genes, the unit of inheritance carried in DNA. DNA’s code is transcribed into RNA and then translated into proteins. RNA is typically a single strand, whereas DNA is always a double strand. RNA has recently played a starring role in vaccine technology helping to end the Covid-19 pandemic and save millions of lives.
Chromosomes are threadlike structures inside of cells that store genetic information. They are composed of the material chromatin, which consists of DNA, RNA and proteins. Most human cells have two pairs of 23 chromosomes, one from your mother and your father, for a total of 46 chromosomes.
The DNA within chromosomes contains the genetic code that describes the physical characteristics of every known life form.

The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
A great seller to work with, price was perfect and fast to shop out. My item was exactly as advertised.
Just as described. They’re adorable
KnickKnack Toy Shack has the best items available at great prices! The customer service outstanding! The tiny Barbie Case is exactly like the original in the 80s! Highly recommended! God Bless & Stay Safe! :))
I am satisfied with my purchase. However, after only a couple days of use, the batteries are beginning to fade. I'd like to know how to replace the batteries, and Westminster has yet to reply to my request.
Can you speak to them, and prompt a reply to me?
Absolutely love these!!! I collect minis and wacky packages was hoping they would make mini packs with cards/stickers!!! Can’t find them here 😔 so very happy you have them!! Thank you to a great seller!!!!!
For nearly 50 years I’ve collected cards. Almost as long I’ve collected miniatures. These are two favorite collectibles in one for me. If they produce miniature packs of Kiss cards, that may be an overload. Always top notch service!
This miniature is fantastic, I had a full size example as a kid and loved it. This brought back a fond time for me. Thank you!!
