If you were a six-inch plastic alligator

July 17th, 2004 · 2 Comments

where would you hide?


One of my girls loves this little alligator…and loses it too.
At times, we’ve spent hours looking for it. Its absence becomes a crisis.
Does anyone have any suggestions to help us keep track of an AWOL-loving alligator?

    RFID chip?

    serious ideas: attach a cord to it. (How big is it? no scale in the picture.) assign a home where it must go between play sessions (build good habits for the future).

    how about a beeper gadget?

    Leash it. Cage it. Or let her deal with it getting lost; it’s something to learn.
