Dave the Funky Shoulder Monkey was first announced to the world late August/early this month, but strangely enough, not too many news portals or blogs out there covered it. We found Dave to be particularly interesting since he could very well be the next Elmo where Christmas presents are concerned. This robotic chimp is meant to be strapped to your shoulder, where he is capable of performing 30 various actions alongside corresponding monkey sounds courtesy of a wireless remote control. Of course, Dave would make to be an excellent pirate sidekick instead of the usual parrot, where he will retail for £24.99 in the UK via Toys R Us. No idea on whether Dave will make it across the Atlantic or not.
