American Alligator Puppet

Alligators aren’t the main characters of most stories, but they could be, and maybe they should! Folkmanis makes a lot of animal puppets and they do it really well -- with true-to-life looks and moves. Tell the best alligator stories, sing some favorite songs or talk about habitats with this realistic, but huggable, alligator plush toy. This Folkmanis puppet is just as happy to be a stuffed animal. Conjuring a happy swamp anywhere it goes. This is definitely an alligator you can smile at. (Folkmanis, $44.50)
