Product Information

A tagalong alligator is the perfect pet for a toddler. Well...a wooden, accordion-style dancing gator, that is. This toy, made from rubber wood and natural green paint, is pulled by an affixed string. When the wheels are in motion, the gator cheerfully click-clacks along, helping your child develop sensory and motor skills on the go.

Why You'll Love It: A happy, snappy gator at your heels offers a playful way to teach speed and direction. Hurry! Left! Right! Stop! Go!
Age: 18 months and up
Features
  • Made from rubber wood
  • Makes rhythmical "click-clack" sounds when pulled
  • Painted in a natural green
  • Made in Thailand

        My son loves to pull this thing around the house. This is a like an "old school" toy made of wood. I wish I could find similar style toys.

            My son (15 months) loves to run around with his "Alli" right behind him. Seems to give him the feeling to take the lead with his best buddy(like kids with their dog). Wonderful quality and the best design I have seen so far (the wiggling tail is just too adorable). Clicking sound is not annoying at all (and we have hard wood floors in the full apartment!). There are other electronic toys for baby/toddlers that are much louder and with horrible sounds (I sometimes wonder how many babies/small kids get hearing problems at an early age because of the noisy toys and we parents are not aware of it!)

                Our son loves "allie." When he was little, he dragged it around the house, as he got to be a better walker, he would "walk" her around the neighborhood while my husband walked the dog! It IS loud, especially outside, but that's part of why it's fun! We've given this as a gift before too.

                What a great pull toy! My 2 year old loves pulling his alligator around the house. It is a very sturdy, and well made toy. Occasionally it flips, but my son turns it back around and keeps on going. It makes a great clacking sound, but beware it is VERY loud on hardwood floors.

                  This is a great pull along toy that my daughter loved since she was just able to sit until now (1.5 yrs). I highly recommend this toy. It makes clongky sound and it just looks so cute when she is pulling it around everywhere she goes.

                    We bought this toy when our daughter was just starting to walk to help with her coordiantion. She absolutely loves this little gator and pulls it alonge behind her as she marches from room to room. The pieces of wood clack together as the toy rolls along, so there is a bit of noise. But I would take this toy over all those toys with the annoying midi sound tracks any day!

                        I bought this for my daughter after researching plan toys. They are completely non toxic and based on toys of yesteryear. This is the best pull toy there is. I can say that because we've owned quite a few. My toddler loves it. She plays with it often throughout the day which is a big deal as you know to keep a toddlers attention for too long. Anyway, with all that said, you won't be disappointed with this. Hope your child enjoys it as much as mine.

                        Our daughter got this gator on her 1st b'day. She loves the clacking sounds and is fascinated by his slats. Unfortunately, the gator was banned from daycare, because the kids all love it and fight over him! We have also given this as a gift many times over to rave reviews.

                        Since my daughter first started walking (around 15 months or so) she has loved this toy. And actually, my husband and I really like it too. The click clack is a little loud but somehow it's not annoying. Our family completely recommends it.

                        My 2 1/2 year old daughter has had this wonderful alligator for at least a year and a half now, and still plays with it almost every day. She loves to pull along her "alligator friend" at the same time as another "friend" for her "Animal Parade" through the house. Terrific quality!

                        My 14-month old loves this alligator. When we first opened the box, he carried it around like a stuffed animal, until he realized that it made noise when he pulled it along. The string is plenty long and it even inspired him to try to say "alligator"! It's been a great purchase.
