Edushape Happy Monkey Child's ToyI’m the proud mother of an 8 1/2 year old girl and a 2 year old little boy. Being a mother is one of the greatest joys and one of the most important jobs in the world. While I’m not a perfect mother, I do consider myself to be a good one!

My best friend is currently pregnant and expecting her first child in late January and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect holiday gift (for the baby) to give to her. Well, I found it and it’s from Edushape, a company that we’ve featured many times here on The Classy Chics blog.

About the Company: Edushape is a 35 year old company that originally developed toys for pre-schools. Soon parents came to know and love the products, and today Edushape is a consumer favorite as well. All toys help stimulate and develop specific age appropriate skills in infants and toddlers.

Edushape Happy Monkey

For this holiday gift guide review, I selected the Edushape Happy Monkey to check out for all of you. This item is perfect from birth and on up! It’s a happy-faced, soft and snuggly monkey toy that is loaded with a lot of fun! It features an super-soft poke-able belly button, teether tail, crinkle ears, silk ribbons, a built-in rattle, striped long-legs & arms (one shrinks as the opposite one is pulled by the child) and what I love the most about it is that it’s cuddly!!!

The Happy Monkey encourages many developmental skills such as hand eye coordination, fine and gross motor skills, socialization, tactile sensory development, and logic and reasoning. In other words, it teaches your child and becomes your child’s snuggly best friend! Overall it measures approximately 6” x 3 1/2” x 13” in size.

Edushape Happy Monkey

When the Happy Monkey arrived my son saw it and wanted it. I let him snuggle and play with it for a little bit before I took it back. My best friend will be getting this as an early holiday gift for the baby. What makes it the perfect gift is that she’s having a little boy and has been decorating the baby’s nursery in a zoo animal theme. This adorable monkey is going to fit right in!

The Happy Monkey retails for $19.99 and is available on amazon for a really great price! You can visit Edushape online to check out all of the adorable children’s toys that they have to offer and to learn more about the company. You can connect with them over on Facebook too!

    This is a very cute monkey and Edushape is a good company.

  2. I remember how my grandson loved cuddly toys like this that had fun features like crinkly ears when he was younger. And I liked them because they held his attention and encouraged him to play and move.

  3. We have some little ones in the family that would so enjoy this one this holiday season. The monkey is so cute and looks so soft and safe.

  4. That monkey is adorable!My nephew would love to play with it! Great Christmas idea!!

  5. My grandson would love to have this adorable little monkey! I love all the things it helps to teach.
