I say nay. Would you spend $50 on a Plush Mitochondrion, Nucleus, Ribosome, Chromosome (Extra $8 for X and Y variations), Golgi, and Endoplasmic Reticulum? I prefer one Microbe to split apart, and on the inside it has the anatomy. Put it together, microbe for toy. Un-Velcro it, and you can see its anatomy! It would be only $20 or so, much less then $50-$60.

I've spent $64 on GIANTmicrobes already. I think it was worth every penny!

Originally, the modern-day mitochondrian ("mitochondria" is plural) was an induvidual organism, that had perfected methods of extracting energy from glucose. Some other bacterium nearby "saw" the mitochondrian and thought it might make a good lunch. So the bacterium ate the mitochondrian.

However, the mitochondrian had an indigestible membrane. The bacterium realized he didn't need to digest the mitochondrian, but instead form a partnership between the two: the bacterium provides shelter, the mitochondrian provides energy. This became the first complex cell, which divided over time to form all the cells of plants and animals.

Make sense now?
