We recently received the most adorable pull toy called the Walk-A-Long Croc by Hape Toys. My daughter just loves her little croc. It’s very different from some of the other pull toys she has had in the past. It’s made of really good quality wood, it has bright, fun colors and the tail wiggles when you pull it.
The croc is recommended for ages 12 months and up. My daughter is 15 months and it’s perfect for her. It really encourages play and creativity as well as coordination. She has learned to walk backwards while pulling the walk-a-long croc as well as look where she is going while walking backwards.
I love that the wheels have grippies on them so the croc doesn’t slide out on our hard floors.
