Born from an egg on a mountain top. The bluest monkey that ever popped. Monkey Magnet, Monkey Magnet….
The Monkey Magnet is similar to a product known as ‘Key Pete Magnetic Key Holder’, where the figure has a simple round head rather than shaped in a monkey’s head, so I guess this a cheap version. The plastic finish is fairly solid for the value, and the magnet is strong enough to hold a keyring with 5 keys. Not bad for 100 yen.
