Recognise these little monkeys? Maybe from when you were a kid? I've recently started collecting monchhichi toys and managed to accumulate 4 in the space of 3 weeks. The total cost was only 55p. The first one cost me a mere 5p (yes that's right, 5p), from a jumble sale. I always make sure I check all tables, including the kids table as you never know what you might find. I had a grin on my face the whole day.
The second one was bought from a boot sale for 50p, it was hidden deep in a suitcase of cuddly toys. I reached in and pulled it out.
The third and fourth ones I got together for free from a lady on Facebook. I'm a member of a few groups similar to Freecycle/Freegle where you can get rid of/or claim unwanted items for free. It's a great way to 'pay it forward', and of course it brings me many gems such as these. Hopefully I can continue collecting and finding bargain Monchhichi toys.


  1. I have a monchhichi figure from when I was really little which I keep in my memories box with a match Keroppi one!

  2. So adorable! I never knew what they are called until now. :) leant something new.

    P.S. I am currently hosting a lovely giveaway on my blog - do come and take part, if you like the prize, of course. :)
