“ Brand: Nici „
Nici is a superb German toy factory based in Altenkunstadt, North Bavarian of Upper Franconia. They produce many good quality gifts, such as figurines, stationary, cards, hot water bottles and quite easily their most popular, plush toys. The company also produced Goleo, who was quite well known as he was the mascot of the 2006 Fifa World Cup.
Since opening in 1986, they have produced a very large amount of quality toys.
This monkey, however, is in their 'Wild Friends' collection, which also consists of a zebra, a giraffe, a lion, a tiger, and quite a few more.
I think they're very reasonably priced compared to some other plush toys out there and they are most definitely better quality than the majority of them!
You can buy the monkey (and all their other products) in various positions (either standing/hanging or laying - as shown in the picture above) and many different prices: 15cm from £5.99, up to 80cm at £49.99! You can also get most of their products in a miniature keyring, or a magnet version where they have small magnets in each hand/paw so you can stick them to the fridge or any other magnetic metal!
It's like this monkey has a personality when he is given a name! I personally got mine from my fiancé as a gift for Christmas, and she had already named him Jeremy, which really suits him. Every time we see him or move him we automatically call him Jeremy - it's a little strange!
By the way, he is most definitely a lot more fluffier than the picture shown above - although I do have the 'hanging' version but I'm pretty sure that doesn't make a difference!
Overall, I think this adorable monkey by Nici is of an incredibly high quality, make excellent gifts and are certainly worth the money.

All that swinging around. I don't think Mr. Monkey will be awake for too long now... Finished in super-soft NICI plush.
