Searching – INFORMATION about CURIOUS GEORGE??? MONKEY — 7 Comments

    He’s cute but doesn’t look like Curious George to me. Maybe a lookalike. What does the tag say? Is it filled with foam/ cotton batting? If I have to guess, he is a carnival prize from the 60s-70s. Japanese companies used to make these animals then. If you tell me what it says on the tag, I can be more accurate.

    The tag has worn away, so it’s nothing but white, theirs no writing on it at all….
    And it’s stuffed will material like cotton wool.

    It was part of a deceased estate that was donated to a charity i work for..
    amongst all the stuff given, were dating back to the 50’s and 60’s and way back before that.

    I still think that he’s an upper-end 60s carnival prize. Cheap ones stuffed with foam, more expensive ones are stuffed with kapok (cotton batting). There are few American companies that used to sell carnival prize such as Superior Toy Novelty and St. Louis Carnival Supply, but most of them are made overseas… with no name. One 50s carnival prize I have simply says Japan on tush tag, but interestingly still has its paper swing tag and sticker, indicating that it’s made by St. Louis Carnival Supply. Here’s an example from eBay# 390031409667. Hope this helps.

  6. hi brittany,
    i know this email may come out of the blue, but i was enquiring to if you still have this monkey.
    when i was a kid my grandma gave me a monkey just like that one and i took it everwhere and slept with it every night. i recently found out that somewhere along the way it has gotten lost and ive tried my hardest to find another one as it was very special to me and my grandmother has since passed away.
    i understand if this monkey is special to you also but if you have ever considered parting with it i would offer a very reasonable price for it.
    please email me
    lord_rycon@hotmail.com

    Sincerely
    Ryan O’Connor
