Monkeys rule. Clear plastic toys are also pretty awesome. And anything that just costs a Quarter is pretty good in my book, too. So if you take all those things and mix 'em up, you know you're going to get some kind of ultra-win.
We've already seen the ''regular'' version of what I dubbed the Mouthy Monkey from the Monkeyin' Around collection, so you can imagine my delight when I saw a machine vending clear plastic variants of those toys.
The toys within the machine - which were labelled as ''Funky Monkeys'' - appeared to include all the toys from the Monkeyin' Around line, but cast in a variety of clear, coloured plastics (I also picked-up a clear orange toy, but that's a monkey for another time...)
Like his solid brown cousin, the Mouthy Funky Monkey isn't articulated but he has a great sculpt. There's a wonderfully cheeky look about him and the expression on his face - which is nicely highlighted with paint - is guaranteed to raise a smile.
25c for a cheeky monkey toy is great value in my book. Add into the mix the fact that he's also cast from clear plastic and that's just the icing on the cake.
