Bookworm Key Ring - Giant Microbes

An adorable key ring for the bookworm in your life!

A cute, cuddly buddy and an educational aid all in one, this quirky key chain plush makes the perfect gift for yourself, for a bibliophile, or just anyone with a healthy sense of humour! 

Lots of microorganisms like to curl up with a good book – and eat it. Silverfish and booklice are some of the more commonly encountered specimens, not to mention termites, moths, cockroaches, carpet beetles, biscuit beetles, drugstore beetles, powder-post beetles, spider beetles, larder beetles, death-watch beetles, and a host of others.

However, Anobium punctatum is the classic bookworm primarily responsible for tunneling holes through the pages of old codices and manuscripts. (A. punctatum also works a day job as the common furniture beetle, which is where it is more often encountered today.)

It is the larvae of A. punctatum that is actually the bibliophage. It spends up to five years devouring pulpy leaves of fact and fiction. Then it pupates, undergoes a metamorphosis, spreads its wings, and flies away!

Size: 8cm x 5cm x 4.5cm approx without clip.

Giantmicrobes are based on actual microbes, cells, organisms and other critters, only 1,000,000 times actual size!

Plush from all new materials. Stuffed with polyester fibre fill. Surface washable: sponge with water & soap, air dry.

Age 3 years+
