In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, for the first time huggable creatures are available to accompany Eric Carle's books. The Very Hungry Caterpillar plush toy is a 7-inch long green caterpillar - just like the one from the book. However, this caterpillar isn't hungry, he just wants to be your baby's favorite friend. His green plush beanie body and bright red face are familiar and his "40th anniversary" patch is a reminder of how this book has generation to generation. Baby-safe, recommended for ages 0+.
