I smell bananas

The Gravy Kids loved all their Christmas presents, with exception to this one from one of their aunts:


Though the gift was certainly well-intentioned, I can't blame the kids from being a little freaked out by this "life-like" doll which moves on its own and makes monkey noises.  Griffin literally ran away from it.

The monkey is on my scary doll list now, too.

My 4 year old seemed creeped out by her Sing A Ma Jig...I can't imagine what this monkey would do to her! I just have to wonder...where do you keep it? I'm thinking I'd have to put him in garage at nightime. :)

eek. What's worse - the monkey or the elf on the shelf?? ... Hard to say...hard to say.

Does she come around often? Can you hide it in the basement? :)
