There is truly no better way to show off your awesome appreciation for science, geekery, and bacteria than with your very own plush microbe! The overwhelming cuteness of Escherichia coli is sure to compliment any room, office, or workspace without the painful pathogenic reality of the real thing. Makes a great gift for friend and foe alike.

Each E.coli plush is hand crafted from fleece and filled with polyester stuffing. It measures approximately 14 cm x 7 cm depicting the bean shapeliness of a bacillus bacterium. It also comes with a super fun little card detailing some fun facts of why E.coli is so cool. Due to the handmade nature of each microbe, your microbe may differ slightly from the photo.

*Note about shipping:
If you live in British Columbia, the shipping cost is $9 (not $14). I will gladly refund you the difference or can set up a specialty listing if this is the case. It's unfortunate how expensive it is to ship within Canada.

Please note that much like all online purchases, the colours may vary from screen to screen. I have tried my best to take pictures that show the pins so please take a peek at all of them for the most accurate representation.

**Be aware that I try to keep my shipping costs as reasonable as possible. I use standard Canada Post for my parcels which do not include tracking or shipping and can take a while to arrive (see shipping estimates in shop policies). If you'd prefer a different shipping method or expedited times please send me a message before you purchase and I can give you the options and prices depending on what your parcel includes. I'll do my best to get your order out quickly but be aware that shipping times are estimates and I am not responsible for delays due to customs**

Frequently asked questions about scientificculture

No. To try to keep shipping costs as low as possible I use regular Canada Post for my orders. It is extremely costly to insure and track parcels from Canada Post (adding anywhere from $16 - $70 to the shipping fee) but if you'd prefer a quicker or different method please message me before you place your order and we can discuss the options and costs.
Yes - I do my best to estimate accurate shipping costs but sometimes (especially if you order multiple items) I am wrong. I happily refund any shipping overages of $2 USD or more to the source of your original payment.

If you are ordering multiple items and would like a shipping estimate please message me and I will calculate the cost for you and set up a reserved listing to help avoid any extra charges.
