I FOUND IT!!! Rosa sent this today: Rosemary I got it!! It is the same. I am going to wash it a couple of time so he looks like the old one a bit. Thanks so much. You are an angel – Big Hugs,
Want to see the photos of the Louis reunion?
In case anyone else needs this TY monkey, his name is Digits and there were several on eBay not long ago.
This is Louis. When my autistic son went to boarding school, he was going through a rough time. Being away from home was not what he wanted.
My mother told him she would send him (from Venezuela) a roommate, a friend to go to school with, and I got this monkey from a Hallmark store here in NYC, and we pretended she sent it. She named him after my brother, who is the clown in the family.
The bad day and ended up pulling Louis’ legs off. I doubt I can fix it. I would rather try to get him another one. Actually, I should get a couple of them, however I can’t find him anywhere. He is around 18 inches long from head to toes and comes naked (no sweater) not just for my son, but for his now ex-roommate that feels very bad every time he sees him and just keeps apologizing.
We told him we’ll send Louis to the shop to be fixed, so I need you to please keep and eye for me on any Hallmark store in your area and of course I will pay for Louis and shipping, BTW I don’t have a serial # or anything because he was supposed to come from Venezuela, so I removed the tag before boxing it for him.
Thanks to you all in advance hugs,

I sent Rosa a link to a TY Digits Monkey, and she ordered it. Hopefully, it will be the correct one, or at least her son will accept it as Louis’ “cousin.”
