Okay. Call me crazy, but isn't this toy 'Monchichi' a bit nightmarish? I guess in the 80s I was too old for Monchichi so it didn't appeal to my sensibilities at the time. But the question is, who exactly DID this creepy toy appeal to? Maybe there are some 'trapped in the 80s' moms out there who are still in their twenties that can remember playing with this hideous thing. If you did, please leave comments below explaining one thing: WHY? Did the people marketing this hideousness think they were really 'onto something big'?? If I'm not mistaken, there was a whole line of all kinds of Monchichi stuff.
I can recall laughing my butt off at the commercials, wondering who in the world would play with these creepy little baby/monkey thingees. DID YOU?
