Smoking Monkeys

Does anyone remember the little plastic Smoking Monkeys? I remember they were about 1 to 2 inches in height and they came with little "cigarettes" (similar to insense kind of things) which you lit and they sat and smoked them. No one can recall these that I've spoken to. They most certainly wouldnt be allowed today... strange little things. Smoking Monkey toys were very popular in the 1960s and came packed in a small plastic bag complete with several different 'cigarettes'.

    I remember these very well. I used to love Smoking Monkeys.. How cool is that. The wierd thing is that the cigarette looked as if it was being dragged on instead of just burning.
