REVIEW: Germusu – Achu, Coli, Eri, Gou and Zoa

Background

The Germusu “are mini storage microbial pouches” from artist Vanessa Germosen. The 2009 lineup includes five new characters: Achu (teal), Gou (green), Coli (yellow), Eri (orange) and Zoa (gray).

Achu is annoying                                Gou is kinda shy
but she doesn’t make you sneeze           he always likes to hide
she’s that stinky fella                          in the inside of your ear
that lives in your blue cheese.               or the corner of your eye.

Coli is so evil, Coli is so mean                Eri’s kind of stinky
he’ll make you burp                            rot’s his favorite scent
and make you hurt                              he loves your smelly toes jam
and then he’ll eat your spleen!              and your bits of belly lint.

Zoa’s really boring
he likes to mope about
he’ll dawdle and sulk all day long
and then he’ll just pass out.

Packaging

Like most plush lines, the Germusu don’t have actual packaging.  What they do have is a tag that features an illustrated picture of the character on the front and the above stories on the back.
