Retro TV and Toys for The Very Young- Monchichi
I was so excited last year to see that Monchichi are back! I was at Chapters and I immediately bought one to give to my baby daughter for Christmas. Then at Easter I saw one at Shopper's Drug Mart and nabbed that one. And now just the other day I bought a mini-Christmas ornament one, at Chapters again. (see photo below.) I remember I had a mini-Monchichi when I was a kid. These Japanese stuffed toy monkeys were first released in 1974. Check out this clip from YouTube of Monchichis, produced by Hanna-Barbera, and also this Monchichis commercial. I love the 80's!!!
