Simply Adorable! Feb 08, 2012
I took a leap of faith buying this monkey, because the photo was so miniscule, and it had no reviews. But I'm so happy I did. What sold me on it was the simple, but appealing face. I looked in stores and at dozens of monkeys online, hoping to find one that looked most like a toy monkey in a story book I bought for my grandson. It needed to be floppy, reddish in color, and have a tail. Most of all, it couldn't have a silly smiley face, which I found off-putting in many other monkeys. It'll be part of my grandson's 2 year old birthday present. I haven't given it to him, yet, but I'm sure he'll love it. It's so soft and cuddly! It's hard to see in the photo, but the nose is sculpted and the eyes have a bit of white below the irises - a nice little detail. The hands and feet (only) are stuffed with little granules of some sort like beanie babies, which help the appendages flop and are fun to squeeze. The description says it weighs 2 pounds, which is a big mistake. It must just weigh a few ounces. Perhaps it's a bit smaller than 14", but I'd say it's big enough for a little one. I can't see anything about this toy which would make it unsafe for children under 3. By the way, the book I referred to is called "I Must Have Bobo!" I'm busy now knitting a sweater for the monkey, which looks just like what Bobo is wearing.
