Dave the Funky Shoulder Monkey Set to Be This Year’s Top Toy at Christmas


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 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.

For many men’s gifts including remote controlled cars, big boy’s toys and attractive men’s watches visit

The company was established in 2001 with the aim of making the task of finding suitable presents for men easier than ever before. The company’s extensive range of products, which includes remote control toys, drinking accessories, designer watches and novelty items, has proved a massive hit with customers and the firm has grown to have 20 stores across the UK as well as a major online presence.
