The adventures of Smartie Monkey

You may have met him before on this little blog. The lovely Treann made him for me in a Polka Dot Swap last year. He has become my kindergarten mascot. The children have each had a turn taking him home for a few days. They record their adventures together in a diary, including photos, text and drawings.

He has ridden a horse, had a camping trip, been on a motorbike, met penguins at the zoo, swung from lights, helped in the dairy, been read countless stories, met lots of pet dogs, been dressed up in a tutu and slept in a multitude of beds.

Poor Smartie monkey was looking a little worse for wear, in serious need of a bath, so I have brought him home for the long weekend for a much needed scrub! I get to have a play too and document what we get up to. As I write he is on the clothesline dripping wet, along with his little dotty shorts, but he is no longer grubby! Tuesday he's back to kinder, ready to go for his second round of visits. The smile never leaves his cheery face, despite all that he endures at the hands of eager 4 and 5 year olds!


  1. NO wonder he never stops smiling, I think he has a wonderful life

  2. That's gorgeous! I remember when my eldest was at kinder & we had kinder Ted for the weekend, what a treat, we all enjoyed his visit actually!

  3. Oh WOW, I cannot believe where Smartie Monkey has been and what he has done, who would of thought he could accompolish so much! I am just so pleased he is making so many children happy, he was made for a very special reason, look forward to hearing some more of his adventures. P.S He looks so cute having his bath!

  4. That is so great Laurel! he is gorgeous, I bet the kids love taking him home.The teddy that came home with Jazzy earlier in the year looked so shop bought and personalitiless. Your kids are really lucky to have you (and Smartie) X

  5. That is all kinds of wonderful Laurel. Loving him & his adventures muchly. Uber ace.

    How fun to have a real lover of poka dots to hang out with!!! Hmmmmm I don't think I have ever seen anyone look as good as SM in a total body suit of poka dots. No wonder he is so popular. I just bet I would be too if I had such a very cool outfit!!! ;)
