giant ebola virus plushie gmus-pd-0240_ebola_clusterEbola has become a goldmine for GIANTmicrobes Inc., maker of plush dolls of microorganisms 1,000,000x life size. Its plague-related toys have, dare we say, gone viral.

The company ordinarily offers a regular plush Ebola, a Gigantic Ebola Virus, and an Ebola Petri Dish, however, today two of the three toys are out of stock.

When Consumerist.com checked earlier in the week they found all three sold out, but this morning it was possible to order the standard Ebola plushie. I guess they found another case they didn’t know about…
