Ellen Trout Lufkin Zoo

BACTERI-AWWW: Snuggle up to Streptococcus and hug Herpes -- these plush Giant Microbes are a million times bigger than their infection causing real-life counterparts (and a million times more cuddly, too). One of the best gag gifts we've ever given -- our pre-med friends got "The Common Cold" one year for Christmas -- the Microbes will also make fun indoor decorations near the snacks at your Halloween party. Plus, they'll serve as a great reminder to WASH YOUR HANDS. GET IT: $8.99, ThinkGeek

HAUNT THIS -- All through October, we're dedicated to bringing you a bit more creepy, icky, scary, or just plain weird items that will turn your normal cry of "Want This" into "Haunt This!"
