At the moment my blog has a new series called What Did You Watch, all about television programmes when you were young, and most of the comments are about nostalgia and looking back, so it comes as no surprise that Bandai have teamed up with an old favourite.
Back in the 80s I knew them as Chicaboos, and we all had them, I can remember all of my friends bringing them in for show and tell.
Its a little scary that they were first introduced in 1974, so they are in fact a little older than me!
There are lots of different ones to collect, but they all have that famous thumb that pops in and out of the mouth, we constantly debate if it is a mini bottle or a dummy!
The children adore them and I find them in all sorts of places, Tyrus seems to think I have new housework buddies!
If you would like to reminisce your childhood (if you are old enough to remember them) or you would like to introduce them to your children, you can find them in Argos and the Entertainer
They also have their own facebook page
Do you have a Monchhichi, or maybe your children ?
