Playing with "Biochemies" might make your kid the next big biochemist.

Forget barbies, beanie babies or Lovecraftian Pokemon Dolls. Jun Axup has some adorable DNA dolls to teach your kids the basics of chemical bonding.

I started two years ago to promote science education. It features images that convey biology and chemistry-related concepts through personification with smiley faces. I encourage the free distribution of these images under Creative Commons and hope that teachers would incorporate these images to enhance their lessons and classroom decor.  The cute smiley faces aim to make science more approachable and fun. I hope these images can help change attitudes towards science and encourage more kids to consider it as a career.
