Can this greedy monkey gobble seventeen bananas? The "monkey," in this case, is an aluminum box with brass caps. An adorable monkey face engraved in the top has a circular hole for a mouth. The "bananas" are brass rods, sixteen small ones that must somehow fit inside the box and a large one that must be inserted flush to solve the puzzle. These are heavy pieces. Once fully fed, the monkey weighs over a pound!
It's rare to find a packing puzzle that has a sense of humor but Feed the Monkey will keep you engaged with its unusual combination of mechanical difficulty and charming whimsy. Challenging, fun and very well made. Designed by Steve Nicholls and Ali Morris of the UK.
Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
