Makokou the Climbing Monkey Statue
Just What I Was Looking For
First off, this little guy is made very well. It does not show so much in the picture but the rope is threaded through 3 of his 4 feet so he holds on securely. He also has some weight to him. He's not a cheap plastic toy. I have a solar chandelier in the backyard. It swings from the tree by both a chain and a steel cable. I removed the monkey's rope and threaded that cable through his hands and now he is climbing the chandelier chain. Very cool.

great addition to outdoor patio
decided on this monkey climbing the rope as an accent to the outdoor area. looks realistic, the rope is thick, not thin string, and is easy to place somewhere. am happy with this purchase.

not able to hang as shown
very cute. flat bottom so it will stand. the rope he is supposedly hanging from is too short to attach it so it can hang. I'll be replacing the rope with a longer piece from the hardware store so I can hang it from the ceiling at a decent height. overall it is nice & my husband loves it & can't wait to hang it.

Cleverly Unique Statue
Makokou is as unique as he is adorable. One has to be creative when finding the perfect place within which to display him, but that is what makes him so much fun and different from statues that you place on a tabletop or shelf. With a little bit of ingenuity, you can turn the rope-like vine he clings to into a beautiful, brightly colored vine of leaves and flowers simply by winding tropical leaves and flowers around the rope. Makokou is perfect in size and appearance and he is priced reasonably as well. If you "think" you "might" like him, trust me, you won't be disappointed. He is lots of fun and a real conversation piece.

Monkey requires better way of securing
I loved the monkey, hung it up outside, but when the rope got wet from rain, the monkey fell and shattered. I glued all the pieces back together, put putty in the holes, painted and rehung with different method and so far is staying out. That's a lot of work if you had just furnished a secure hook on rope to hang it with in the first place.

very well made
Bought the monkey to go with our fake palm trees out back. A beautiful complement to our outdoor design. Great for the husband who has everything. My husband so soo impressed Can hardly wait till it warms up to put it outside.

Unique gift for the monkey lover in your family
We were looking for a unique gift for a hard to buy member of the family. He loves monkeys so Makokou was a great match. It'll have a special place in his home.
