A Connecticut-based toy maker is benefiting from the Ebola outbreak.

Toy company Giantmicrobes has sold out of its plush Ebola toys. The company sells an entire line of microscopic organism plush dolls.

The company sells three Ebola products — two plush toys and an Ebola petri dish. Both plush toys are currently sold out.

As of Wednesday morning, the Ebola petri dish was still available to order.

The company has been in business since 2002 – long before the current outbreak.
