While I think kids tend to get too many dolls, I have found some that I
couldn't resist giving to my niece: a two meter long plush python is (I
think) a good way of teaching that snakes aren't bad, and more recently
she got an Epstein-Barr virus from http://www.giantmicrobes.com/
( http://www.flickr.com/photos/arenamontanus/333996720/ ) which hopefully
will be useful in a few years when I plan to teach her the realities of
biological life. She also liked my own Mars pillow-globe (see
http://www.1worldglobes.com/huggamars.htm ). Might be a good way of
learning geography.
