Learn to Walk with the Animals

The Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy encourages exploration and discovery with a playful, brightly colored swamp scene. Three green gators in a blue pool are the centerpieces of the toy, and each of the four wheels features a multicolored fish that appears to be swimming as the wheels turn.

A wooden handle extends from the back of the base and includes colorful details of cattails and butterflies on its supports. Butterfly and ladybug beads attached to the supports are fun for little hands to slide and spin.

Designed to Encourage Movement and Discovery

The toy's design helps teach motor skills as well as basic cause and effect. With each step your child takes, the alligators take turns opening and closing their mouths with a gentle clacking noise. The alligators' noise and animation encourages movement and development of gross motor skills, while spinnable, slidable beads on the handle supports help improve fine motor skills.

In addition, the toy promotes agility, balance, and exercise. The handle is simple to grab and hold, so your little one can steer the push toy in straight lines or along wandering paths. Non-skid wheels let your child walk along smooth surfaces without moving too fast or leaving any unsightly marks on your floor. The wheels also allow your waddler to move forward and backward without veering off course or getting stuck.

Durable, Dependable Handcrafted Construction

The Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy is handcrafted and hand sanded from select hardwood and made with nontoxic dyes and paints. Measuring 15 by 11-3/4 by 15 inches (H x W x D), the toy is wide and weighty enough to give wobbly babies the support they need to fearlessly take their first steps. Tiny hands can easily grasp the raised handlebar. The push toy requires adult assembly, which is simple to do with only a Phillips-head screwdriver.

While our testers were pleased by the overall construction of the toy, they did note that the three cutouts in which the alligators move are a little rough at the edges. This was not an issue during testing, but parents should keep an eye out for possible splinters.

October 6, 2011 - We passed this down to a friend and her daughter LOVES it too. She was walking in no time. I love how stable it is. It keeps them from going too fast and flipping it over. Still love it!

May 6, 2010 - My 9 month old daughter LOVES this toy. She is so amazed to be mobile. Right now, she can only manage to push it in a straight line. It seems hard to maneuver for beginning walkers. Luckily, we have an open floor plan so she can go right from the living room through the kitchen into the dining room before she has to stop and turn around. I can see her using this for awhile though... putting dollies on it and pushing them around. She wants to play with it every day and gets upset when she can't.

Durability: So far we have had no problems. I read reviews that complained that the handle bar comes unglued. The version I received has a screw holding the handle bar in place. We've had it for a month and no defects have come about.

My son loved this toy when he saw that he could walk with it. It was so cute and he was so cute pushing it. A simple trip and he hit his forehead on the sharp edged spinning fish and left a gash right between his eyes that the Dr said would leave a scar! There was blood everywhere! I see from the reviews that this has happened to others and I can't believe that they haven't fixed it by rounding off the edges since it's a known issue.

I was happy with this until the top bar came loose just a few days after we bought it! My 20 month old fell forward and landed with his neck on one of the vertical parts. It was terrible, and all because their glue didn't hold. If you buy this, please screw the top bar in place so this doesn't happen to you. This is not the only Melissa and Doug toy we have had glue issues with. Not recommended.

We bought this for my daughter's first birthday and she loved it during the first week she played with it. However, wooden slivers from the plywood side panel began flaking and breaking off almost immediately. Each broken piece is about an inch long and incredibly dangerous. We have taken it away from her and will be returning it as soon as I have time. What a shame. I previously loved Melissa & Doug products.

Wow, what a bummer. We have lots of Melissa and Doug toys, and I've always been very happy with their quality and durability. This one however, is shameful! My first clue should have been as I was taking it out of the box, the top layer of cheap wood splintered off. Had I bought it in a store, I'd have taken it right back. This was a birthday present for our daughter though, and bought online, so I thought "Well, it's just one strip of wood." Our child loved this toy right away...that being said, within the first week the entire area of blue wood began splintering off. All over the floor. Not only could my daughter have choked on a piece, but she could have scraped or cut herself, etc.
Cheap craftsmanship aside, my daughter has lost her balance and toppled over the top bar twice, and hit her head on the wooden alligators. Now, the toy didn't cause her to lose her balance, but considering this is a toy made for toddlers, and toddlers tend to topple, wouldn't they have thought of the possible injuries?
Overall, an INCREDIBLE DISAPPOINTMENT and I'm sorry to say that it's made me a little wary of Melissa and Doug toys in general.

We received this for a 1st birthday present. It is really cute, simple and unique. We were given a push toy about a month ago that my son enjoyed...it had all the bells a whistles...lights, sounds, music, etc... I really never gave it much thought until we used this one today. Without all the "flare" of the vetch toy, it seems that my son actually enjoys this one more....he loved playing with the alligator mouths...open, shut, open, shut....he did this for ages! Most importantly for Mom, this one seems to have more stability and control on our tile and wood floors than the plastic vetch one does. The Melissa&Doug product has rubber on the wheels which I think helps...the vetch toy has plastic wheels and takes off like a rocket on the tiles.

I read some of the 1-2 star reviews and haven't noticed the most commonly cited issue (quality) as a problem. Mine is well built and sturdy. I will certainly update if this changes. We've only used it one night but I can already tell that it will be a favorite going forward.

I might also add that it is really, really, really nice to not have a toy that is flashing or beeping or singing in some weird electronica voice. I wish we had been gifted more like this :)

I first saw this toy being enthusiastically pushed around by a small toddler at a warehouse art show and I knew I had to get one for my own. It's colorful, amusing, and just slightly menacing (in a playful way.)

The one comment I would have is that it's probably most useful at the early end of the recommended age range, when the child is walking, but needs a little extra confidence.

My daughter got this toy for Christams when she was 8 months old. By 9 months she was crusing around the house with it...doing laps. She is now 15 months old and can walk but she still loves to play with this toy. It is durable and the rubber on the wheels means it doesn't take off when it hits none carpeted surfaces
