Question ID: 366201
A little background.  My mom has MS and my dad has bought her her
dream cabin on the lake....the first time she saw it she cried and
described her "sanctuary" to me on the the phone as "my costa rican
cabin"...i asked her to explain, as Georgia doesn't look much like
costa rica (i travel there a lot on business).  She said that after
years of my describing Costa Ricas beautiful rainforests, and telling
her stories of the monkeys climbing and swinging in the trees....that
is how she felt the 1st time she saw her oasis....she could almost
picture the monkey in the tree.

  That said....they "officially" move furniture in, in a few weeks and
i'd love to have a monkey dangling from the trees (by the way...having
seen it now...i is very lush and the huge trees form
an amazing canopy over the cabin and deck - not quite CR, but yes...i
see her vision!).

So....where can i find an artificial, semi-realistic looking monkey
that will stand the weather?  I've looked on-line and all i find is
stuffed, plush monkeys, blow-up ones, or tiny plastic ones.  In a
perfect world i'd love to be able to nail him to a tree where he could
indefinitely, so mom could see him out her window, or from the deck. 
Somewhere i could order online, in the US & that it not be too

Thanks so much for your help..i hope what i'm looking for exists..but
if not..i appreciate you trying!

Okay, nfpolaris, now we've got monkeys coming out the wazoo.

If you can't find here a weatherproof, affordable monkey for your
parents' cabin, I'll be a monkey's uncle.

This one comes singly, or in a set of two at a discount:

I'm also awaiting pictures and information from another store which
has some monkey garden statuary available for sale, and I'll post that
information as soon as I receive it.

Search Strategy

resin monkey OR chimpanzee

garden monkey OR chimpanzee

monkey OR monkeys garden sculpture OR sculptures OR statue OR statues OR statuary

cooking up for her!

do you think if i buy a Suburban, they'll "throw in" the monkey? 
Although i think i'd want one with a better temper.  8-)

OK,,, so i was thinking about this one for a minute or two.

Not quite a trunkmonkey, but you can give him a coat or two of flat
spray on urethane or let him weather naturally...

I think that by far, your question is one of the best, most original,
questions, ever to be asked here.

This monkey seems to be everywhere: 
Historic Moments (warning: pictures of Japanese men in their pants)
Baking an Apple Crumble

OK. I'll get serious. 

This monkey looks pretty real (except for the basketball): 

This shop has lots of monkeys, and may even have contacts/abilities to
order a custom-monkey
Monkey Goods

And finally, an idea: monkey mask on a rubber figure of the type that
(for example) is used for baby first-aid dolls; etc.

This one's only 6.5 inches tall/long, but it should be weather-proof
and it is inexpensive:
