Jacko Monkey

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Jacko Monkey was a gorgeous monkey that was made by Chad Valley I think. It was easily one of my favourite toys in the early 70's and I still have two of them!

Jacko Monkey had plastic hands and feet and wore a stripey tee-shirt and trousers. His arms were above his head like he was swinging from a tree or something.

    I so remember this monkey, I think it first started my lifelong love of monkeys which I've collected in various forms at various times of my life. I never had one but got to play with my sousins' monkeys.

    check out ebay - I still have my Jacko - he will be 50 in August. Just had a new body made for him - they covered his old one with flesh coloured material. He looks amazing - didnt lose any of his character. My Mum took his arms off and sewed them so they hung down (easier to cuddle properly) I have done the same with the Jacko I gave my grandaughter - bought at a carboot. clarealien

    Please can any one answer my question, I had a Jacko Monkey approx 1959 - 1961 year of manufacture. I recall it having red trousers and a red and white striped top. If my memory serves me right it also had red sleeves on the top. The only photos I can find are blue and yellow sleeves. The Jacko I owned had his arms upright. Also if anyone has one for sale please can you let me know.

    I still have my Jacko - he had red trousers and red top, one ear has been partly sewn back on and he only has one eye because my sister poked it out with fork! I loved him dearly and I will never part with him.
