Actually, I think it's only a practical calculation. I mean, the Strep plush would be like a ball, so it would not stand up but fall as a dispenser. The Rhinovirus plush is the only one in my collection (Rhinovirus, Flu, Sore Throat, Sleeping Sickness, Yeast) that even stands up on a cushion, on the other hand.

He does put on lotion, but if he doesn't, his skin is dry

Handwashing helps prevent viral infections. When you have the cold germ on your hand, and touch your nose, you're infected, right? Washing the microbes before they can enter your body stops infection. It even says so on the plushie tag for The Common Cold.

Yes you can catch the virus by getting it on your hand and touching your nose or mouth. Not as fun as fecal oral but gets the job done.

If they wanted to they could have made it after another bug but just given it a base or flat bottom.

Lotion is my cure for pretty much everything, I have bottles in practically every room of the apartment.

Default Me too

I actually have the soap dispenser. My 6-year old brother ordered it(who knew???) and it works pretty well. I am moving so we are going to put it in our new bathroom but for now it just stays in the closet looking at us.

The soap dispencer is a cute and fun way to remind people of the risk of catching germs if you don't wash your hands. Our bathroom is blue, so It would look quite nice in there. I'm considering a GIANT Microbes hat for myself, too!

I already have a soap dispenser that matches everything in the bathroom (fish mosaic theme, I am also a fish keeper), I am thinking about putting the cold one in the kitchen, doesn't match but that is fine, don't mind it "popping" out !

Thumbs down

Our daily soap just not a good cleaner of viruses, it can remove only dust from your body and quiet a bit of jerm . When you were alresdy sick, washing your hands may not too good to cure you, but it can prevent you from other jerms.
