I am an early childhood teacher and I introduced the crocodile stage puppet to a group of too to three year olds. He looks very real and for some children he was just two scary. I use him with some monkey finger puppets for the rhyme 'five little monkeys swinging in the tree'. On the first day one little girl wanted to be the crocodile. However, when she got him, she wasn't so sure. Before putting her hand inside she looked inside carefully; she decided it was safe to put her hand in. Now they are used to him, the children love him and so do I. His teeth look quite life like and his eye are fabulous; he is very well made.
