I will grow old with him...I got em on my 3rd Christmas and I remember when the lady upstairs bought him down for me...Memories *sigh*

i wanted one very badly. my parents got me one for christmas, so they thought. it was gray but not a monkey, it was a cat. the ears were flat against the head. it really looked like a monkey in the package. i dont remember who made it or what it was called but i loved it just the same. once, i left it in west virginia at my grandparents house. omg! i cried the entire trip home. i had to wait several months until we got back down there. i still have her.

I remember the monchichis, too :)) I never had one, but I had something that looked a lot like one. I think it was a Fruity(sp?) It was small and furry with the plastic face and hands like the monchichi, but they came in different colors(pink, purple, etc.) It also had a little plastic stem in it's head with a leaf. I've been trying like mad to find another one. Any one else have one?

Yeah, the evil monchichis were the Grumplins. Or as the song went: The Grumplins are very mean to the monchichis.Every day they tease try to catch and squeeze. So back up to the trees go the Monchichis. Monchichi means happiness! I don't know why I remember this. I had exactly one monchichi and never cared for it. I did watch the cartoon though it was never a favorite. Why my mind retained parts of the theme for a cartoon that meant little to me I'll never know.

Oh my:) Nobody is going to believe me, but they were sold in the Soviet Union back then. Don't know whether the idea was stolen (Cold War, espionage and so on;)) and they were made somewhere there, or they came from Germany. As I was 4 I just didn't care;) But I can still remember mine - she was almost black and her name was Bodia - don't ask what it was supposed to mean, I just loved the sound:) Her face probably differed slightly.

I finally bought my first real Monchhichi today. I was in the store in Vancouver, and there he was, staring at me. I've waited for over 30 years for this little guy to show up. I had a fake one that my mom bought for me in Hungary back in the 80's, but despite the fact that I loved him dearly, I've always had this awareness that he was fake. I'm sooooo happy. It's like finding true love at last. My 17 year old daughter thinks I'm nuts, but I don't care.

I have 2 display cases full of monchhichi's. You can buy them on ebay or monchhichioutlet.com. It's great to know that there are other monchhichi fans out there.

This 2009 Christmas my kids got me a Monchichi for a present and it brought back so many childhood memories. How sweet of them to think of me. I remember my monkey was old and his fur on his head came off like a hooded jacket and we got rid of him when we got rid of my old Childhood dolls. Limited storage and just ready to separate. I feel like Toy Story movie and relate with the childhood stores and where do they end up. Thanks kids for bringing my childhood back and Mommy Loves her Monchichi and will have it buried with it when I pass on this one day ....far far from now. Love you kids!

I got my first Monchichi from my dad's boss at a company Christmas party. I was 6 years old. When our house burned down in 1987 we lost everything. Just a few years ago my sister surprised me with a Monchichi still in its box she got off of Ebay it was the best present she could have gotten me. Now a friend of mine told me that Target is selling them again and I will so be trying to get one.

I just bought a new girl Monchichi from Target for $8.99 and I just LOVE her. She makes me smile every time I look her. So glad that Target carries them again! Great childhood memories!

As a kid I lost a small white monchichi at the zoo! I was devastated. I also had a slightly larger one with brown fur. Cute toys.

If anybody wants one, please contact me at keckdani@yahoo.com. I have 7 different kinds-- 1)12" tall Monchichi in lucky cat outfit; 2)9" traditional red bib Monchichi boy; 3)7" tall Monchichi baby in cat outfit with pacifier in a hand. The pacifier could go into her mouth :-) 4)6" tall Monchichi in Chinese military outfit (Chairman Mao outfit). This one is really special! 5)Three 4.5" baby monchichis (Bebikiki) with pacifier in hand or mouth (the pacifier can go both way): one in blue cloth diaper; one in Samurai outfit; and another one in physician/doctor's white outfit. These are all very cute and can be great presents to your loved one.

I`m 14 and iLOVE Monchhichis. !! iJUST got one from my cousin as an early birthday present and iTreasure her dearly. None of my friends know what they are, but that doesn`t matter. Wishing to get more in the future. They are so darn adorable. Plus, they should start showing the cartoon on Boomerang. That would be so cool to watch now(:

I always thought they were funny-looking, but one day my boyfriend and I saw one at Target that was sooo cute and we just fell in love. She has so much personality and is so cute and sweet. I love my Monchhichi. We also have two Bebichichis too, who are adorable, but Monchichi is special to me.

I love Monchhichi's! I have more than 20 of them. I cuddle mine to sleep every night lol! They have the cutest faces with a "I didn't do it!" look in their eyes. Adorable and they all look like they have their own personality. I've even sewn clothes for some of them. Sometimes I think they'd be really cute and mischievious if they came to life... hehehe...

I'll be 33 in 4 days and I still have my monchhichi. His name is Thumbkey and his banaNna in his hand goes in his mouth. My aunt bought him for me because I sucked my thumb as a child. I love him still. Will purchase one for my one year old son first chance I get. Btw, a line from the cartoon went, 'Up in the trees go the Monchhichis, Monchhichi, means happiness. Something like that. Lol

I loved my Monchichi! I saw them at target a couple of months ago. They had a small vintage toy section in the toy isle. I was tempted to buy one, but my girlfriend (never had a monchichi) talked me out of the $20.00 purchase!

I have a boy and a girl. I bought them at Safeway about a year and a half ago. I saw them in the 80s, but didn't buy them until the 21st century.

I used to have a Monchichi back in the 80's, it's the one that can cling to you... Back in the 80's i would have it cling to my arm and people would look at me and think it was a real monkey clinging to my arm (if only they know,lol)... Now i am looking for the same kind to give to my kids and my nieces and nephews but i couldnt find it anymore.. My mom gave it away when we moved.. Missed it so much..

I'm 17 and I know what monchhichis are! When I was 4, I had an old hand-me-down bebichhichi and it was the best. I lost him not long after I got him when I got hit by a car. It was an awful experience, but I found a new one online I'm getting for my birthday and I am so excited!
