Tente Monkey Business
I was about to post a whole hoard of older lego duplo figures, but amongst the collection I found this little monkey, who caught my eye, and didnt quite belong. It turned out he was made by a company called Tente.
Tente were based in Barcelona, Spain, where they created a whole range of construction toys along similar lines to lego. Its fans are adamant it was more detailed and even more educational than its Danish counterpart.
The most fantastic thing about this chap, is that his collar spins his head round, to reveal three fabulously different expressions; He can be angry, happy and sleepy.......
But for now hes off to bed.
