Cajun Crocodile Bulletin Board Set
This set really brightened my classroom with its fun, appealing style. There were TONS of letters and pictures and border to work with. I was able to decorate several medium-sized bulletin boards with this set. Every time I walk in my classroom, I still smile at how cute my bulletin boards are! Pieces were super easy to pop out at the perforations, and the quality is excellent.

Cute Bulletin Board Set!
A few weeks ago I was browsing online through Oriental Trading's Clearance section, hoping to find inspiration for a board to encourage our students to read. That's when I came across the Cajun Crocodiles! How fun are they!! And, I happened to get them at an amazing price...so amazing that I also bought a set for my sister who is also a 3rd grade teacher. She loves it, too! You will notice that I have lots of letters in my 2 captions. I did need to borrow 3 letters from my sister's set, but I have lots more left over. I have had NUMEROUS compliments on this board!! So bright and colorful!! Thanks, Oriental Trading, for making my job easier! :) *Note: I will agree that the paper is a bit thin, and laminating would have probably been a good idea, but still very worth the money. Lots of pieces to choose from. With the added touches of greenery from the local discount store, this bulletin board came together nicely.

I bought this on sale. I figured I could use it as a theme one year. The crocodiles were cute enough, but rolled while I was trying to laminate them. Most of the value came from the letters, a full set will allow me to use them any time I want green letters. If you like your lamination cut close like I do be prepared to spend hours cutting around the "grass". Overall, I am sure I will use this for a bright colorful display. I just wish that the crocodiles would have laminated better. Maybe it was just our machine, but I had issues!

Easy Cut, Large Displays
One of the best purchases I've made for quality. Getting the pieces off was simple compared to a number of others! The letters are a good size too and I like the borders for using for a variety of displays.

This looks so good. You can use it for any subject. I used it for "Math is a Snap". The only thing I didn't like was that I had to laminate the border. It is just as thin as the pieces.

Bright and Fun!
I ordered this to use in my craft room for our VBS, to use with the Crocodile Dock theme. The children love the bright colors and fun pictures to use. We actually had enough to make two bulletin boards out of it-one large and one small. We added some greenery to it to make a "swampy" look. Kid friendly , bright, colorful pictures. I was surprised and thankful how very quickly the order came in!

Cute - but limited
This bulletin board set is a great value. The selection is limited, only crocs and some bugs and frog, but over all very cute. They punch out easily and are bright and fun. A great buy for us teachers on a tight budget!

There were plenty of pieces to decorate a 4'x8' bulletin board in my classroom - lots of letters, big and smaller pieces (I used the extras around the wall and classroom to tie in the theme). I do agree with the OTC recommendation of laminating the pieces if you want them to last longer. They punched out VERY cleanly and weren't too thin or flimsy. The prices is great as well!
Too bad it keeps selling out, or I'd order another set!

Not enough letters for Crocodile Dock
If you plan to use this to advertise your Crocodile Dock VBS, you need to know that there will not be enough letters to spell out the title. Even if you order 2 sets, you will still be short one letter C. I ended up altering an O to be a C. Other than that, though, the set is very cute and makes a great display!

OT's price and quantity could not be beat. Love it.
