Beach Monkey & Tree Centerpiece
I purchased this to use as the topper on a diaper cake for our nieces baby shower. Everyone liked it and thought it was adorable.

Okay for the price
I bought this to be the centerpiece of the table for a 4 year-old birthday party. For the price, it was okay, but be aware that the cardboard of the monkey gets bent very easily in shipping so take it out when you get it to check condition. If you call customer service, which is great, they'll ship you another one. I didn't do this so had to improvise a bit to get the monkey to stay in position. Overall, it accomplished the goal and made a nice centerpiece.

Was cute but didn't make it very long, with the thin cardboard the top bent over.

I bought 2 of these for my daughter's 1st birthday party. They are so cute! One got broken during shipping, so I called the company and they were VERY polite. They sent me out another one with no problems.

Every Bit as Cute as in Picture!
Bought for 1 year birthday party - These are absolutely adorable!! The 1st one I recieved had been bent in half in the box. OT cust. service is beyond top notch - they shipped another out right AWAY! 1st one had tape to hold honeycomb pieces together, the 2nd one had paperclips (my preference anyway) Stood up well put up the day of and was very cute centerpiece! Now two days later the palm portion has flopped over because the cardboard palm/monkey section just isn't heavy enough cardboard. Overall was fantastic for our party!

I received the paper clips to hold it together. It also stood alone. It was cute & did what I expected for the price.

not happy with quality
I recently gave a monkey themed baby shower.
I found the monkey centerpiece to be very cute.
I felt the price of the monkey was good.
Although the quality of the centerpiece was very poor.
The green paper at the base on both centerpieces I purchased were not glued. I had to glue and tape centerepiece together so I could use it.
Their wasn't anything inlcluded in the package to
fasten the top or bottome of the centerpiece together.
This must of been a manufacture issue.
Would not buy again.

The best thing about this product was that reviewers had mentioned that you need to bring paper clips to help make these stand up. When I got mine, I found that each of the plastic bags which held the palm trees had a tiny opening where 4 or 5 paper clips had obviously been added after packaging. It was great because they were needed, but the best thing is Oriental Trading seems to be responsive to customer response.
That's great. Also, these little monkeys have a silly look but they are cute and funny even for an adult party.

would have been a great centerpiece, but the bottom was uneven to the point it would not stand alone. had to keep propping it up against a vase. defeats the purpose of a stand alone centerpiece. the colors and little monkey was so cute. overall would recommend it.
