COVID-19 - Cities are locked down and economies quiver. The coronavirus disease COVID-19 arrived in 2019 and quickly spread globally along with confusion, rumors, and fear. Scientists investigate vaccines as nations “go medieval” by quarantining citizens. When a mysterious microbe comes knocking and the threat of a pandemic is in the air, stay calm and learn the facts.
COVID-19 is respiratory, spreading mainly in coughs and sneezes. Compared to the flu, it may be more contagious and deadly. Symptoms can include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. To prevent illness avoid contact with sick people, wash your hands, and do not panic.
ZIKA - The Zika virus causes devastating birth defects and neurological disorders. It is transmitted to people by the bites of infected Aedes mosquitoes, which live in the Americas, Africa, and Asia. Most infected people have no symptoms, while some have a fever, rash, and muscle pain.
Zika became a public health emergency in 2016 when it emerged in Brazil and spread globally. Increases in human population and travel combined with climate change have helped this disease spread. There are still no treatments or vaccines available. Zika has not vanished so do your best to avoid this mosquito. The larger lesson is that we have to prepare for the emergence of new menacing microbes.
MEASLES - Measles is a highly contagious virus that remains a dangerous health threat. Many people catch this microbe each year despite a vaccine that's spot-on. Although its telltale symptoms are red spots and a mild fever, it is in fact a respiratory disease that can lead to fatal pneumonia and brain damage.
The good news is that most children are inoculated against measles, typically along with mumps, rubella, and chickenpox when they receive their MMRV shot. The bad news is that cases have recently skyrocketed. Measles is one of the leading causes of vaccine-preventable childhood deaths, yet weak healthcare in developing countries and misinformed vaccine resistance have led to its resurgence. Vaccinations can stop this modern-day plague.
PANDEMIC FLU - The flu, or influenza, is capable of killing rapidly and efficiently, more so than any other known virus. The seasonal flu sickens millions annually. But new flus can lead to global pandemics. All flus originate in wild ducks, gulls, and other water birds. When certain strains spill over to infect mammals, deadly hybrid flus can emerge.
Swine flu, the H1N1 strain, is a mix of pig, bird, and human flu viruses. H1N1 caused the last four flu pandemics including the 1918 Spanish Flu, nightmarishly fatal to over 50 million people who had no immunities against that unfamiliar strain. The flu is full of surprises, so we best pay attention and prepare.
SARS - Years before COVID-19 arose to plague our world, the first coronavirus to inflict serious illness upon people was SARS, severe acute respiratory syndrome. In 2003, SARS jumped from its animal host to humans. From China it spread to 32 countries, infecting over 8,000 people with respiratory disease and killing 774.
The SARS epidemic was deadly but it did not rise to the level of a pandemic. Scientists were quick to identify this novel virus and health experts were efficient in isolating cases. Humanity was also lucky. That coronavirus vanished and was nearly forgotten, that is until its cousin COVID-19 emerged in a much bigger way.

My mom has always collected dolls and toys, and got me a Dream House when I was little. Now that she's downsized, I thought it would be neat to return the favor and get her an apartment-friendly Dream House of her own :) . It looks amazing and I cannot wait to give it to her!
Perfect condition, fast delivery. Just what I asked for!

i love the tiny ponies
So cute and soft. Love the weight of these and their little sayings on their tag.
I was skeptical about ordering online so I figured I made a mistake when I received the wrong item. When I sent an email reporting it wasn't what I ordered. They quickly responded and sent me the correct order
The Barbie houses are the cutest tiny houses I've ever seen! They are a welcome addition to my collection.
This is just like the big ones but tiny and well made
That’ll is is awesome
This is a great addition to my collection, I've been waiting for more old school toys! I haven't opened this one yet because I don't want anyone to mess with it, haha!
These are yet again greatly detailed, and are must haves if you're a collector or know someone who enjoys the movies! They barely take up any space, look great, and make for awesome conversation with friends and family!
I purchased these for my own collection, as I love the movies. They look great and the little weapons are just fantastic! They've been an awesome conversation starter, and my friends adore them! I keep these on display in my dining room!
I purchased these for my son, who loves the show. He couldn't believe they made something like this, and just loves them! They're detailed, look awesome, and are a perfect addition to his collection! We hope they make more of the characters!!
Very soft and adorable! Arrived very quickly and safely as well. Thank you!
