This neuron is really awesome, it's cute and fun. Although mine is often accused of being some sort of elephant crab thing when I cover one of the eyes most of the medical professionals I work with can identify it precisely. I've tried to rub two of them together to make thoughts but it hasn't worked quite yet. I am disappointed by the fact that every neuron is identical thus even the 4 whisps at the axon terminals are the same. You really don't need more than one of these.

When I first found this product on Amazon, I laughed out loud! What a cool idea with the potential for so many teachable moments! I bought this little guy for my classroom, and I know he will be a big hit in my upcoming critical thinking / reading / writing classes. (I could see him used in Health and Science classes as well as other subjects as well.) The product I received was brand new in a plastic bag; it had a clever info card attached. I felt like the product was well-made, even with his wispy little parts that another reviewer mentioned! This neuron / brain cell has sweet, big eyes that seem alert--like he is taking everything in! LOL I enjoyed the little information card, which offered some fun facts and trivia about neurons. (The information makes the card worth keeping.) It also stated how many times larger this doll was than the actual real neurons in the brain. I noticed some reviewers were concerned about the size of this neuron doll--being smaller than expected. But, hey, he is LARGE compared to other neurons of the real variety! :)

My only TINY gripe about the product is the orange cloth tags near the bottom of the new doll. (If Amazon publishes my picture on the product page, you can see this!) I understand why they are there---identification and authenticity of product. However, that orange stands out beside that gray like a beacon. I'm thinking about cutting them off, so he will look like the picture on the Amazon page.

In summary, I am impressed with this product and its potential. Teachers: buy this product if you want to talk about the brain or thinking in your class. Neuron will be an unusual, likable, memorable prop. Go on! Give your neuron a name and let him promote the cultivation and care of real live brain cells and brains!

This is a fun doll that makes for geeky humor. I returned the first one because it had a bit of a hole in the material. The second one I got was fine. It's made in China. This is meant to stay in a room, not to be handled very aggressively. Wish it were made in the USA. Otherwise, it's a great gift with some educational as well as comic value.

This is actually Mark's daughter who uses this account, I got one of these for my recent birthday. I am a freak for stuff like this. My father said he got it for be because he said that i misplace my brain sometimes, so he said that i need to hold on to this thing at all times so i don't loose it anymore!
i love this little guy and he is cute to!

I bought this for my boyfriend, who is studying for his surgical board exams.

My only complaint is that the wispy things branching off the axon terminals are a bit odd, given how thick and plush the rest of the toy is.

I LOVE my little family of neurons. I am using them for teaching purposes. They are wonderful for hands-on demonstration of how brain cells work--in conjunction with images on the screen. Both kids and adults enjoy them. I have been working on ways to have them connect (safety pin, tiny magnet with glue...) --to demonstrate the synaptic junction and how networks are created. If you have any ideas along these lines.................

Thank you.
