Monchhichi, the cute thumb sucking monkey, was introduced in 1974 by the Japanese Company “Sekiguchi”.
The name Monchhichi comes from the French word “mon” (meaning “mine”)and “petit” (“small cute thing”). Also they got the hint of “mon” from the English word monkey, and the sound of sucking on a pacifier like “chu-chu” in Japanese.
Since 1974 many Monchhichi’s have found good homes all over the world, and are loved by kids, parents and grandparents alike. Monchhichi has the meaning of “my little loved-one” coming from “mon petit” in French. Even if you have never seen Monchhichi before, you are sure to love Monchhichi. Monchhichi is so adorable, cute and kawaii!
