The Crawligator is a fun tool for helping baby learn to crawl. I’ve been sharing on social media, but not sure my blog readers know this yet … I’m going to be a first-time grandma in the spring! Yay! Our family has been through so much over the past 2 years – hard things that have caused me to pull away from blogging – but I know that babies bring healing and I cannot wait to meet my new grandbaby!
Recently, I was asking on Facebook what I need to have at my house to be prepared for my first grandchild. Slowly, I’ve been adding the things that were suggested – like a playpen, some toys, a bouncy seat and swing, etc. But, when I saw this new gadget for babies, I was intrigued.
What is the Crawligator?
The original Crawligator had success in the late 60s, but somehow disappeared from the shelf. In fact, people still sell the vintage version online.
However, safety regulations were different in 1969, so when Stacey Kanzler decided to bring back the Crawligator, she did so with more safety features to meet today’s Consumer Products Safety Commission safety standards, including;
A single directional gripping rear wheel to prevent
Four gripping safety pads
Promotes child development
Twice the tummy time for muscle strengthening; spin and neck strengthening
Develops mobility through kicking, reaching, pushing
Unlike other walkers, the Crawligator stores easily.
How It Works
Introduce your infant to the Crawligator slowly and gradually making sure they are positioned comfortably on their stomach.
Once they are secure on the Crawligator begin to move them slowly in a forward direction, accustoming them to the movement.
Place toys in the distance and encourage them to reach for the toys. If they appear to get upset, take them off the Crawligator and wait a bit before trying again.
Remember to make it fun!! The Crawligator makes tummy time fun.
Heidi Says …
I had never seen the Crawligator before, which is surprising since I was born in 1970 and could have very well had one of the originals! The concept intrigued me, but my baby isn’t here to try it out yet. So, I enlisted the help of my adorable little neighbor. She is just 6 months, so she’s on the low end of the suggested age range for the Kiddie Crawler, but she seemed to enjoy testing it for me!
She will be keeping it for further product testing and she grows!
