These giant, soft, colourful caterpillars have been part of our range from the beginning and continue to delight babies and children. Customers recall having one as a toddler and cherishing it so much they are thrilled to be able to get one for their own children. The large sizes remain the best seller of the two sizes due to their "wow" factor. Each segment has a letter of the alphabet with a corresponding embroidered icon ( A has an apple, B has a bear, C has a cat etc ). These caterpillars are commonly used in cots as a bumper and then can be used to support a baby when it's learning to sit to soften any tumbles. The smaller sized caterpillars are numbered 1 to 10 on each segment.
