Description
Chickaboo was a brown small monkey with a soft body and a hard head. You could get boy and girl ones and you could hook their thumbs on their feet or make them suck their thumbs. They were very cute!

I loved my Chickaboo and have kept him stored away for yrs until recently when my 3yr old found him, who now takes him everywhere with him and has managed to split his feet and under arms he calls him his baby..

.. the song on the commercial went.."Monchichi monchichi! Oh so soft and cuddly! With his thumb in his mouth he's really neat, you can tickle his little feet!..." Known as Mon chi chi's in Texas. I still have both the girl and boy and the clothes. Love them!

I thought it was a Monchichi. Monchichi Monchichi! I had one with grabby arms that actually hurt if you put it on your finger.

I had a great collection of these in the 80s, we called them chicaboos, lived in Scotland as a child! Moved to England and they were all misplaced! :-( I remember I had the small ones,baseball players, married couple, surfer, egg on head, tennis player so many.Just had a look on ebay but could only find a handful of ones I had!
