The 1347 to 1353 Black Death plague took out anywhere between one third and one half of the European population. Our little black friend here was transmitted via fleas that were infesting rats.

Lest you think this toy is outdated, be aware that thousands of cases of plague are still reported to the World Health Organization every year.

Without treatment, the disease will multiply up to a week before victims experience low energy, fever, headaches and chills. The most notorious symptom of the bubonic plague is the swelling of the lymph nodes, resulting in buboes.

Own a piece of history by bringing home a replication of the little microbe that completely changed Medieval Europe.
