The Crocodiles most obvious function is as a staircase, which enhances the strength and balance of the child. When turned upside down you have an angled surface - the see saw function appears when the crocodile is placed on its back and the child can walk/lie on its entire straight surface. The furniture will grow with the child given that the small child can muscle in on the low step and the higher steps are for the toddler. The crocodile has three seating levels for the small child and it is splendid for the social dimension that 2-3 children can sit together on the same piece of furniture. There is also the option to stack them as a bench, which allows 2 heights.
