I've been taxing my poor printer by forcing it to churn out our little What Do Guts Do? poster, so I'm excited to tell you (and my LaserJet 2605dn) that we're printing it professionally so it'll be bigger and better! We're expecting these giant 18 x 24 posters any day now and were pleased to get a sneak preview from the Jakprints blog. Apparently the poster made the folks over there newly appreciate the pancreas and all it does to regulate your sugar levels. My friend's six year old helped me go over the artwork, and he understood most of it (he is not only very bright, but has been looking at our guts ever since he was a baby), i.e. why the kidneys are in the bathtub, why the bladder is watering the plants, why the spleen is beating up germs, why the lung is playing the trumpet, etc. Only when he got home, he gave us a call and wanted to know why the uterus was riding a bicycle. We expect these any day now, so check back soon!
lung plush! We are expanding each or our 8-page hangtags into 12-page hangtags to include more info, photos and details about how each organ functions. A tiny and fun book o' biology that comes with each of our organ plushies.
