This fun Godzilla toy for kids offers an entertaining alternative to classic figurines of the iconic Japanese movie monster. The 'Godzilla Snap Crocodile Dentist Game' puts a monstrous spin on simple dentist toys for kids that include a mouth full of teeth that need to be pulled. Kids are challenged to take turns removing teeth from the model monster's mouth and work quickly, since pulling one of the teeth will cause the battery-operated toy to snap its jaw shut.

The launch of the official Toho toy coincides with the release of Godzilla Resurgence in Japan, which is inspiring the creation of a new wave of movie monster products. Outside of games for kids and collector's items, themed products can also be seen across fashion and personal care, which suggests this classic creature's influence as an icon of Japanese pop culture.
