This is probably the only time you will ever see Ebola associated with “add to wish list.”

A Connecticut-based toy maker has seen a big boost in sales thanks to the recent Ebola outbreak.

Giantmicrobes has completely sold out of its plush Ebola toys.

The company sells two sizes of plush Ebola toys and an Ebola petri dish. As of Wednesday evening the petri dish is still available to order.

The company sells a whole line of microscopic organism plush dolls.

Giantmicrobes has been in business since 2002 — long before the Ebola outbreak.
