The blow-up crocs had a host of problems, officials at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport explained on Thursday.
The packaging said the toys were suitable for children under three weighing less than 45 kilos (99 pounds) but the instructions on the crocodiles themselves said kids up to six years and 80 kilos could climb on board.
"Customs officials monitor inflatable objects very closely because they are very dangerous," a spokeswoman said, adding that they were especially vigilant during the summer holidays.
