Who could resist this face? Okay, my friend Audrey (who thinks any inanimate object with a face is kinda creepy) could. But not me. Not once, not twice, not three, not even seven times could I resist that little monkey face.
But wait--there's more to this story than meets the twinkle in the little monkey's eye!
I had one of these guys when I was still in a crib. It was a BLUE monkey, given to me by my "awful" (uncle) Jimmy. "Monkey" was my best friend, but alas, as with many childhood toys, he was lost (or thrown out as I see it!). But, as we all know, you can BUY your childhood back through the miracle that is Ebay! I searched auction after auction for my elusive little blue friend, finding only his colorful cousins (which as you see, I had to buy only to be safe in the knowledge they were coming to a good home!).
They do a lot of smiling, but they're not talking. I don't know where my blue monkey BFF is, but his pals will keep me company until he's found.
