Magic Monkey on the Wall

We have a naughty little Monkey in our midst.  He’s mischevious and sneaky and you never really know where you’ll find him.  See for yourself:





Sometimes this mischevious little monkey convinces the stuffed bear to join in on the antics and we find them together on the shelf.


Thus far, however, he hasn’t been able to convince Old Monkey (aka, Steve) to climb with him.  Steve just doesn’t have it in him anymore.  He’s a little over three years old.  In Sock Monkey years that’s 104.  He also has a bum arm and leg…



There are squeals of delight multiple times a day as we discover where New Monkey has settled himself.  “I fink he must be awive!” they cry. 


We’ve tried to catch Monkey in the act of swinging and climbing, but he’s just too clever.  As you can see from some of the pictures above, we’ve almost caught him.  We’ve seen him mid-swing more than once, but he always manages to freeze before we can get to him.


Yesterday they were determined to keep Monkey in their sights all day in the hopes that they would see him move.  But wouldn’t you know, when they turned their backs for one second he managed to scamper up on top of the fridge!


Silly Monkey.


  1. I can’t wait to get there and help find him. I didn’t realize Monkey was so mischievious. Just 3 more days, kids. YEA!

    That’s so adorable! Your kids are too cute. Sounds like a fun game. =)

  3. This is awesome! You’re so fun! Love the imagination and the kids look so into it! It’s like Elf on a Shelf all year round.


  1. […] this little game I’d play with the kids. For those of you who have been around here awhile, you may remember it. I would put Landon’s sock monkey in all kinds of funny and strange places and Tia and Landon […]
