The Alligator Puppet is about 36 inches long. This is one of our partially stuffed puppets. The body is softly stuffed so he is a very cuddly. The feet and legs are not stuffed, so they can swing and move easily when you work the alligator puppet. The access to the working mouth is in the belly between the front legs, so he can sit along the top of your arm as you work the mouth. This allows the unstuffed feet to swing and move. It is easy for a young child to reach the large mouth from under his neck, but be very careful because alligators are always very hungry puppets.
