Meet Manners Monkey. A soft, cuddley character to reinforce good manners in children.
How many times do I need to tell you, 'MIND YOUR MANNERS'! Have you heard that before? Then, Please stop thinking about it, and let's do something about it, thank you. These are a few polite words taught from Manners Monkey, "Please" and "Thankyou"..
I have developed the character Manners Monkey in stuffed animal form, in a poster, in a puppet activity and working on the children's book, too. This character helps children to internalize the meaning of having good manners, takes a bit of stress off the adult as well. Nag, Nag, Nag, say 'please', say 'pretty please' say, 'thank you', say what! Manners Monkey is here to help!
Please allow me to introduce, "Manners Monkey"!
Kids can hug me, love me, talk to me, play with me, learn with me and about me. Our Kickstarter journey is to bring me to life and into the arms of children and to be a positive rodel with good manners.
You can put me in your backpack when you go to school or are visiting family and friends. You can snuggle up with me at nap time. You can set me at your table, too. I would really, really like to meet you!
Please check out my rewards. I hope you use your manners, but just in case you might know of someone who doesn't, perhaps there's a message you can share with them. I know I could use a reminder every now and again to use my good manners, and I'd like to be the reminder you need, too.
As you can see, I have alot of tools to help teach good manners. Please share me with others that you know and together we will make this world a polite place to be. Thank you!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
After some conteplating just where to have Manners Monkey made, as I debated about having him done overseas or here and as we know, the price difference was HUGE, so, I found a company here in the states who will help in the process. However, most of it will be done overseas. I'm fine with that and I hope you are, too. The time frame to create Manners Monkey could take upto three months from start to finish with a large order, but, hey, at least it's not nine months of waiting!
Tried and true, the preschoolers love Manners Monkey, the adults think he is adorable and even the elementary kids think it's pretty cool to have good manners!
I hope my rewards will fill your need to share good manners or teach others how important it is to have them.
