    Yep just an over excited box ticker for the application, I struggle to believe no-one didn’t think hmm well we can’t sell “croc” footwear as there’s already a brand.

    The Croc Drop name was pretty trash anyway so long as they don't go for Croc Plop now!

    Apparently Merlin's 5 year business plan was all based around selling Croc Drop shoes. Without this important source of revenue, the parks might not be able to open next year.

    Presumably it the ‘Croc’ part of the name they don’t like.

    Merlin will probably just change it to Crocodile Drop.

    Yep, they are aiming for classes 25, 35 and 41. Class 25 is: "Clothing, footwear, headgear.".

    Are you not doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock?
    Or are you with the other kids Rocking Round the Clock?

    This couldn't all just be a big marketing gimmick could it? I wouldn't put it past Merlin to come up with something like that. I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't going to be called that all along and it's just to get it into the papers. Such as the Sub Terra 12+ rating and the Th13teen marketing.

    Now I think about it, that seems quite obvious.

    Crocs have officially registered an objection to the name right?

    I can’t see many global corporations legal departments being too keen on getting involved in a marketing stunt.

    I honestly didn't know that Crocs still existed. They are the shoes that are a cross between sandals and a cheese grater yes?
