They were actually sold in a woot-off a few months ago. The cape had a misprint: "wooy.com"

@jsimsace: Darn! Link doesn't work anymore. Anyone have them & can tell us if they're as cute as they look? These are the keychains, not the monkeys with no purpose in life but to entertain!

I got three on my desk right now. They scream just as loud as their older brothers.

They're adorable! If you're interesting in seeing what they look like, here's what they look like from the back and here's a sideways shot that must be woot's original picture.

@conanthelibrarian: I wonder what my cat would do with them. Oh, gotta have one!

Yes! They generally show up during Wootoffs...I have several of the purple caped versions...perfect for my Grand-Daughter's little fingers. :-D We took the metal rings off and have flying monkey contests.

@neuropsychosocial: Oh, adorable, tho' the purple guy looks a bit lifeless! I will try to wait for a Woot off and hope they get some.

I have a couple of them. Neither worked right when I got them though (didn't scream). Not sure what happened.

@conanthelibrarian: Do yours have the misprinted capes? I wondered if all of them did.

What do they usually cost during the woot off?

@abitterwoman: Did you remember to take off the little pull-tab on the back? It's there to protect the battery from accidental usage before you get them, and they won't scream until you pull it out.

@palady: Mine were $1.49 each(plus $5 shipping). ABT. :)

Edited to correct price.

There are some available on ebay.

Priced higher than $1.49, but some have free shipping.

@gt0163c: Thanks for the link! Some aren't too bad, but I think I'll wait for the next couple of woot offs and hope...
Thanks everyone for the information!

I set this up on my tablet with no battery left. I hope it is not a dupe....anyway... here are some keychains that you can grab for 4.99.

Yes - I gave out three purple caped monkey's for Christmas 2011.

@gionot: The keychain monkeys didn't have tabs in them.

@abitterwoman: You have to squeeze their stomach as they have a button that triggers the scream.

@msklzannie: mea culpa
I don't have a keychain monkey, obviously, and just assumed they would work the same as the regular ones. Does that mean they only scream when squeezed and not when flown?

vote-for1vote-against

@gionot: I don't remember if there was a pull tab or not but I definitely pulled it if there was one.

@msklzannie Yes, I felt around and found that when I got them, but they were just DOA. Only 1 out of 3 worked. Ah, well.

Thanks for both your help, though :)
