Is it a Tinkle Tots Island toy?

No, I do not think so, even if the physique is similar. I would have classified it rather in the category "Glowing Friends" or "Playful Pets". I think I remember that it was glow in the dark. But I can not find anything there. As a kid, I always thought it was an animal, because it had ground paw pads on its feet. Thank you for your help. :-)

Hi Chiisette !

I am searching too the origins of that monkey. I will make a better picture because I have one at home.
We are several toys collectors in France to have one and asking where it come from too ? They all have been found in flea markets.

Yes that's it! I can hardly believe it! Many, many thanks for the wonderful photos. That means a lot to me. The sweet guy was my lucky charm when I had my second heart op at four, unfortunately he lost on the drive home. Since then I have never found such a figure again. Over the years, I have somehow forgotten what it looked like and had hoped to find pictures on the Internet, but that was harder than expected. Therefore many, many thanks, for the photos that is a long search to end!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

He looks a little like a Sanrio character, I will keep an eye out for you because I loved reading your story about him, and I'd like you to find another one.

I thought the same thing Dludnerad, Chi Chai Monchan was about the closest in appearance that I could find.

Thank you for taking the trouble and helping me find it, that's really nice of you. But I do not think it's Chi Chai Monchan even if they are really similar. Chi Chai Monchan's debut was in 2004, the pink guy I had in 1991 already. If so, it would have to be a very early version of it.
