Super Mario Donkey Kong
The names of these Super Mario Bros figures leave a lot to be desired in my opinion, take this one "Donkey Kong" now I must be missing something here but why would an ape be called Donkey? I understand the Kong bit for obvious reasons, King Kong but I guess I must just be out of touch with what works and what doesn't as far as names go.
What he is like
Donkey Kong is made from extremely tough plastic; he is a very hard and sturdy little 5 inch figure. Because he's chunky and quite solid this makes him a little heavier than other figures in the series. But this in no way alters the fact that the figure is smooth to the touch and feels nice in my hands. Although his head is stationary, both his legs and arms move backwards and forwards, I say arms and legs as I'm not altogether sure what them limbs are actually called on an ape. He's brown and beige in colour and he wears a red soft plastic tie displaying in yellow the initials DK on the bottom of it.
Good addition to any Super Mario Bros collection
I think he is a good addition to the Super Mario Bros collection, he definitely looks the part, he isn't a particular favourite of mine but this in no way alters the fact that this figure is very well made and of excellent quality. He has to be the sturdiest of the Super Mario collection in my opinion, he really is solid. Children would like to play with him I'm sure, however I personally would be a little cautious of him being thrown, he would probably hurt anyone he came into direct contact with.
How much and where from
My son has had Donkey Kong for a while now and the condition of him is still like new, he is worth what you would pay for him, which would probably be around £8.00 or £9.00 you're sure to find him on Amazon or EBay and probably in the high street toy shops as well.
