We just got back from a family vacation on the Oregon coast where we saw the most beautiful burgundy and black caterpillars scooching through a field. They looked so soft and moved like little inchworms. Grass green Christopher Caterpillar is super soft too and clearly very happy! His tummy is soft corduroy, he has plenty of legs to scoot with, and his antennae are squishy for squiggly giggles! I think he would be a charming new baby gift, fit nicely in a holiday stocking, be happy to head off to the dorms, and even please Grandma!
He is 12 inches long and is good for any age.
