:: Alli The Alligator ::

I would like to introduce you to Alli:
Each of the kids in Markus' family had a hand knit alligator (or crocodile, I'm not sure...I call them alligators) when they were young.  Their lovely Omi from Switzerland makes these stuffed alligators, and without fail, Analise was given her very own as well.  As she gets older, she is enjoying anything soft and stuffed, so the other week we brought Alli out of the closet.  Since then, he goes everywhere with her.  If you ask her what Alli says, you will get this response, "SNAP! SNAP!"
 She really loves Alli the Alligator!

Great Analise that you also like the Krokodil.
It is made in Switzerland!
Love you

ps the Lutz kids know the difference between a crocodile and an alligator...the corrected me once back in the day when the younger ones were still little. THEY KNOW EVERYTHING. Homeschoolers.
