At Newbury Comics today I saw this:
HOW MUCH did I love my Monchichi? Of all the loads of my childhood toys in my attic I can’t believe I did not keep this doll.
Mine was kind of a transgender Monchichi in that I would sometimes push her topknot down and tie the bib around her head like a visor. Then she’d look like the boy Monchichi (on his way to deal cards at some sort of wacky stuffed animal poker game.)
“Monchichi Monchichi, oh so soft and cuddly, put a thumb in her mouth she’s really neat, fun to play with her little feet, la la la, la la la, Monchichi Monchichi!!”**
**commercial jingle courtesy of my own memory and not Google! Alarming, right?
Hey what’s with that spelling?
