Jimmy the Crab - Maryland Flag Edition is the original Jimmy and a tribute to his home state. Jimmy the Crab is an extremely lifelike, to-scale model of a jumbo, male blue crab. Comprised of 13 pieces, Jimmy can be disassembled and reassembled similar to a puzzle -- it's a must have for crab lovers and a beautiful display piece! Jimmy is also helpful to novice crab eaters trying to learn their way around a hardshell crab.
Other Things to Know about Jimmy:
The design was derived from a real blue crab to ensure an extremely lifelike appearance
Another name for a male crab is a "jimmy", which is part of the inspiration for the name "Jimmy the Crab"
Jimmy is the only known crab model that simulates the unique activity of picking a blue crab
Jimmy's legs and claws attach to his body using ball joints, so the design approximates the movements of a real crab
The top "jaws" of Jimmy's claws are designed to simulate the opening and closing of the real thing

Dimensions: Jimmy the Crab measures approximately 10" by 7" when assembled (and a healthy 6" from point-to-point)
I bought this as a gift for a very dear friend. She loves puzzles & she loves crabs. How could I lose? She also never, ever learned how to properly pick a crab. Misuse of a mallet was her go-to. *gasp*
Now she'll learn, have fun, AND have a beautiful crustacean to display in her new Florida home!
Jimmy is a piece of home for me and our kids. The Maryland flag edition brings me home every time I look at it. We bought Jimmy to reach our kids how to eat a crab and it wound up on our coffee table for a display. Fantastic quality and a must have for crab lovers.
Jimmy the Crab was an instant hit in my household. Both of my kids, ages 7 and 9, have thoroughly enjoyed playing with him. They love taking him apart, putting him back together, and showing Jimmy off to their friends. I was really impressed with the overall quality and durability of the product. Also, the packaging was uniquely impressive. Jimmy is a great gift idea for anyone, children or adults.
I stumbled across Jimmy the Crab, and I am so happy I found this gift. I gave it to my kids and it was an instant hit with the 5 year old and even the 13 year old. Adults love this gift too. This is my new go to for kids’ birthdays and housewarming gifts. A hit with all! Customer Service was on point. Jimmy the Crab shipped quickly and the company was great with updates.
