All About Lung
Your two lungs are the main organs of the respiratory system filling most of your chest. This colorful get well gift is for people post-surgery or a fun, educational learning tool.
FACTS: Your two lungs are the main organs of the respiratory system filling most of your chest. Lungs rely on your rib muscles and the diaphragm to expand and deflate. Air travels down your trachea into two bronchi, dividing into bronchioles and then into the millions of lung cells called alveoli. These clusters of tiny airbags provide a tennis-court sized area to maximize gas exchange. This is where the magic happens, where oxygen from the air is absorbed and passes into your blood. Carbon dioxide, a waste product of metabolism, travels from the blood to the alveoli, where it flows out and is exhaled.
Alveoli is a word taken from Latin meaning “little cavity”. So the lungs are in effect an enormous cavity enabling us to breathe. The lungs are covered by a thin layer of tissue, the pleura, and by lubricating fluid which allows smooth expansion and contraction.
There are many types of lung cells. Type 1 epithelial cells, or squamous alveolar cells, form most of the alveoli. They are devoid of organelles, such as mitochondria and golgi bodies, and have incredibly thin walls for effective gas exchange. Type 2 epithelial cells are cuboidal in shape and produce a surfactant to keep the alveoli moist. The lungs also have alveolar macrophages that provide a defensive mechanism against microbes and other harmful substances we breathe into the lungs. If this seems like a lot to take in, just take a deep breath and cherish your magnificent lungs!

I absolutely love this item. Thank you so much!!💕
The perfect addition to my collections. Thank you knick knack
I was delighted when I found the World's Smallest GI Joes. My son has a complete set of figures and mobiles. I was wondering how I could add to his collection. I saw these at Knick Knack and was thrilled. I was even more thrilled when I saw the prices. I immediately ordered one of each. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I look forward to shopping here again.
Very cute little Care Bears! They make me so happy. This is a fantastic price for all four, and they shipped pretty quickly! If you put the pastel and multicolored bears together, they'd look like a mini version of my childhood teddy bear.
Super well made. Fast shipping. Safeky packaged. Very happy. Will return to buy more. :)
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!
