Teaching Children

He's just the right size for teaching children. He can communicate with them at their eye level, and when he moves he's not at all threatening. He's perfect for hugs and kisses from small friends. He's agile enough to maneuver easily in school classrooms and other restricted areas. With his headlights, taillights and flashing warning lights he is highly visible.
