Poor Sad Sock Monkey

I was looking through the Target flyer and saw this sock monkey for sale:

Look at the eyebrows! And the grim mouth! This poor monkey looks like he's just been told his Mom is dead!

Why on earth would anyone buy a sad toy for their child? "Here, kid, here's a heartbroken monkey! Happy Birthday!"

I just don't get it. Sad toys, that is. That being said, I am currently working on a stuffed monster toy. But I'm not planning on giving it to a little kid. "Here, kid! Happy nightmares!"

He does look sad. This must reflect the attitude of those poor folks in China on the assembly line that stuffed him.

Yeah .... stuffed him with lead.

Obviously you guys haven't seen the movie: mr magorium's wonder emporium. If you did, you would know why he's sad. So go watch the movie and get off his nutz!
