Super-Bugs are soft-toy germs that look just like the real thing only a million times larger and  a thousand times cuter! They're humorous, educational and great fun. 

They make great training session Ice-Breakers and as leads into discussing Hygiene issues in Schools, Colleges, Care-Homes and the workplace.


Rotavirus (or “wheel” virus in Latin, after its microscopic appearance) is one of the most common viral infections among young children. Indeed, nearly all children are thought to have had the disease at least once by the time they are 5 years old. Its signature symptom is severe diarrhoea, often accompanied by fever and nausea – and it is often called “stomach flu” (though it is not related to the flu virus). It is spread orally and via faecal matter, typically distributed via changing tables or poorly washed hands. Although it normally causes symptoms for 3-10 days, it can remain contagious for up to 12 days after the onset of diarrhoea. As a result, it is often transmitted in child-care settings, when children return prematurely after experiencing a bout with the disease. Dehydration is the primary danger that sufferers face; low energy, dry mouths, and sunken eyes are signs that dehydration is becoming severe. (In infants, sunken soft spots and dry diapers are also indicative.) In such cases, hospitalisation is required, so that fluids can be administered intravenously. 1973: Ruth Bishop discovered the rotavirus from her work at a children’s hospital in Australia.
