If you've never seen a tardigrade before, you are in for a treat.

Tardigrades have cute nicknames like water bears and moss piglets, but they look like tiny faceless manatees. The microscopic critters dwell in moss and lichen and can be found almost everywhere on Earth.

Here are some human-sized goodies for the water bear lover in your life:

1. This 3D-printed desk mate.

Which come in oodles of colors — even 14K solid gold, if you're nasty.


3. These shot or pint glasses.

Tardigrades are incredibly resilient: A few survived being shuttled into the oxygen-deprived vacuum of space and left outside in sub-zero temperature for 10 days. The hangover you're about to give yourself is nothing compared to that!

5. Or this one.

Also stuffed, but without the pleading eyes to please not send it into space again.

8. This felted friend.

Made of wool for nights where you need some extra warmth, since this guy doesn't need any.
