The Crawligator snaps up Toy Insider 2022 Award

Volo, IL  - Award-winning tummy time toy the Crawligator has been named a Top Holiday Toy in The Toy Insider’s 2022 Holiday Gift Guide.

“We are so excited to include the Crawligator in our Holiday Gift Guide,” said Ali Mierzejewski, editor-in-chief, The Toy Insider. “This innovative plaything helps encourage kids to get moving in a way that is natural and intuitive. With its unique and adorable design, it is the perfect staple for any playroom.”

Inclusion in this leading consumer holiday gift guide is the latest honor for the Crawligator, which earlier this year won the 2022 Independent Baby Innovation Award’s  Learning Toy Product of the Year. The Crawligator, which promotes natural crawling movement for infants while building strength, was also the 2019 Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) Innovation Award winner and in 2020 was chosen as Creative Child Magazine’s Product of the Year.

“I am so grateful for this huge honor,” said Kohler, CEO & Founder, Kiddy Crawler. “With The Toy Insiders Holiday Gift Guide’s digital reach, Crawligator will further establish its position as the world’s leading brand in infant mobility.

A popular toy for infants in the 1960’s, the Crawligator had disappeared from store shelves. After becoming a grandmother and understanding the growing importance of baby tummy time, Kohler brought the Crawligator back to the market with new features that meet today’s Consumer Product Safety Commission standards. 

 Designed to move just above the surface of a smooth level floor on ball caster wheels, the modern Crawligator's contoured surface better fits the curvature of the baby’s body, allowing the child to rest comfortably on their stomach and naturally learn to crawl. Its new features include a single, directional, gripping rear wheel to prevent uncontrolled movement, and four gripping safety pads.

The Crawligator, which is made in the United States, retails for $73.49 and is available for sale on as well as on
