Having worked with early childhood age children for many years, I've seen how young children enjoy a "grab 'n' go" friend. Mongo Monkey is just waiting to be taken along for some fun! Caution: Don't over stuff Mongo's head and body. Over stuffing will cause the added on face, arms and legs to appear too small for the body.
Not critical for this project. Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
