Blood can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be if you understand what’s really going on! The blood cell soft toy kit by Giant Microbes contains five different types of cute plush toy blood cells with educational information to help us all learn about our blood (hint: there’s a lot more going on in there than you might expect!).
This science toy kit is suitable for everyone age 3 and older and will help understanding about the different types of blood cells and what they do to help our bodies work. It’s a useful tool for teachers or a fun educational toy for kids at home and makes a great gift for any occasion!
The five types of cells included in the kit are: red blood cells, white blood cells, antibodies, platelets and plasma. Red blood cells contain hemoglobin which transports oxygen and makes our blood appear red. White blood cells (also known as leukocytes) help fight germs and infections while antibodies do similar work for the immune system by identifying foreign substances (antigens) inside the body. Platelets cause the blood to clot and they are part of what makes a scab and starts the healing process when we get hurt. Lastly plasma cells form the clear liquid that transports waste products and carries the other types of blood cells around the body.
