STAMFORD, Connecticut - Drew Oliver hopes his Giant Microbes are catching -- with buyers.
He's created stuffed toys in the shape of disease-causing germs. He says they were first popular among
medical workers, but now he even has germ fans on Facebook.
The Connecticut-based entrepreneur says he first got the idea for Giant Microbes as a teaching tool for kids.
The 5-to-7 inch stuffed common cold virus sells for about nine bucks.
