Kathe Kruse Monkey Carlo Dangle XXL
(Kathe Kruse/Hape $99.99)
Indeed, the XXL is more than an armful of fun. Monkey Carlo is a giant velvety grey with white chest and face, red and white checked gingham lined ears and feet, and a very long tail. He has all stitched features, which makes him safe enough for toddlers, who will like lugging him about. This kind of oversized creature makes a nice decorative centerpiece in a nursery, but not for the crib where it could be as dangerous as a pillow to a young child or an up and over stepping stone that could catapult an older child out of the crib by accident. That said, this kind of big lovable soft doll will no doubt be a long-term play companion—one that is as big as a three year old but listens and says only what your child wants him to say and do.
