The Talkative toy featured on the BBC’s Something for the
Weekend’s gadget reviews section is now being sold at Men’s Gifts and men's accessories retailer Menkind and is bound to be a big hit with
children and adults alike this Christmas.
Dave the Funky Shoulder Monkey has been hotly tipped to be a great source of
entertainment this Christmas as the product is due for release in October during the
build up to December. Toy companies such as Hamleys and Wow! Stuff have both
ordered plenty in and placed it within their Top 10 toys for Christmas presents in 2010 and even though
one retailer has ordered a huge stock of 450,000 they still don’t think they’ll meet
the massive consumer demand for Dave, this year’s most popular monkey.
The toy is touted as an interactive ventriloquist dummy although you can operate it
completely hands-free via the remote control which could easily be hidden behind
your back or pocket. Dave attaches to your shoulder via a strap that secures Dave
on to your shoulder and can interact with you and other people around with a
repertoire of over 30 moves and actions.
With actions such as laughing, crying, giving high fives and even blowing a
raspberry it is just like having an actual cheeky monkey on your shoulder with the
advantage of not having to clean up after him!
Harbir Padda of Menkind had the following to say about the addition of Dave to the
company’s Christmas line-up, “Dave The Funky Shoulder Monkey is sure to be a big hit
this Christmas with similar ‘virtual pet’ gifts being huge last year, although none
have been quite as fun and entertaining as Dave!”
Menkind Stores and it’s online store at Menkind.co.uk are already taking orders for
Dave as well as many other popular men’s Christmas gifts such as the Magic Wand
Remote Control also featured on TV in the popular Dragon’s Den show where notorious
dragon Duncan Bannatyne beat other Dragons to the punch by placing the winning bid
for a stake in the Kymera Magic Wand Remote.
