I would like to order some Giant Microbes for some of the young ones on my holiday list, but I can't find on the webpage where they are manufactured. Can one of you peek at the tag and tell me?

Thanks much,

I think some were UK and some China. As much as I am not for outsourcing it is a fact of life, even the stuff that is made in USA is often mostly made elsewhere and only assembled here. I love the microbes too much to care where and how they were made.

The tags say (I'm looking on Red Blood Cell's) Distr. by: Giantmicrobes UK Limited 72 New Bond St. #2329, Mayfair London W1S 1RR, United Kingdom. It also says 'Made in China':eek: ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRG!:mad: Well, I'm not too surprised, almost nothing is not.:confused:

I thought it was California! XD Eh, but I live in America. EVERYTHING here is made in China, Latin America or Japan/Thailand... XD

They are shipped from California. Oh, and by the way, is it based in Delaware, or Connecticut? Both of those are closer to me, so I think it would be easier to ship them from there.:confused:

I thought it was California too. China? Who would think...
