Testimonials

Because of the Lil’ Iguana program our daughter is still with us today, and although our story has a happy ending we also understand that we could have lost our youngest child.

Many programs attempt to teach young children about safety. Lil’ Iguana’s unique approach not only succeeds at it, but enables them to retain the lessons for years afterward.
