You know we all have those favourite childhood toys that we wish we'd hung on to for our kids to play with? Well I had that thought with my little Chicaboo!
Remember the little monkeys that sucked their thumbs?
I was really surprised to find they've been relaunched - under their original Japanese name, Monchhichi and they live at Monchhichiland!
I was very lucky to be sent a new Monchhichi to review ... And the lovely people at Monchhichiland have allocated me one to give away to my great readers!
We received a pink mother care one!
We love that there's a teeny baby monchhichi in a baby sling attached to the pink dress (the baby was held on by a stitch and I took the decision to carefully unpick it myself).
The mother care Monchhichi has cute little bunches tied with ribbons which match her removable pink dress.
She has the classic thumb sucking hand which I think is actually a small milk bottle or dummy! And she has those cute freckles, soft fur and a long tail.
She's just as I remember my 80's Chic a boo to be!
The baby has a fixed dummy, and the same cute feature freckles, soft fur and a tail too!
Mothercare monchhichi is available with either a pink or blue dress.
My 3 year old boy actually really loves playing with Monchhichi and I think I will be buying him one for his birthday! He's got his eye on the one that comes with a dog!
There are both boy and girl Monchhichi and there's a very large collection to choose from, as Monchhichi is a unisex toy, both my son and daughter have enjoyed playing with Monchhichi equally.
My sister in law still has her original 80's one which one of my niece's likes to cuddle up to at bed time and there isn't much that's changed at all - they're even the same size! My hubby also commented that he'd had a boy one too when he was little! I think perhaps everyone I know had one of these back in the 80's!
We were also sent a keychain Monchhichi which has a fabric loop ontop of his head so you can easily slide him off the keychain if you wish - ours currently lives on the nappy bag and has already come in handy for child distraction!
Monchhichiland, besides the current extensive collection of characters and sizes (look out for the giant one!) will also be introducing the Bebichhichi collection in April, which are baby Monchhichi and September will see the launch of Monchhichi clothing collections and accessories such as a Monchhichi doll playhouse!
Monchhichiland is based in the UK and posts to the rest of Europe and Worldwide too.
There's a Monchhichi Club sign up on the about us page along with one of the original 80's TV ads! http://monchhichiland.com/about/
