Monkeys were used in early space exploration to test the biological effects of space travel. These early “astronauts” provided scientists with invaluable knowledge. Our soft plush monkey is dressed for take-off in a blue flight suit. Posable in the sitting position. Pudgy, cuddly and cute, the brown bear sports a white satin space suit replete with printed patches. Polyester. Ages 3 and up. Sold as a set. Monkey: 12"h. x 4"w. x 11"l.; Bear: 12"h. x 7"w. x 11"l.
The Apollo to the Moon exhibit in our National Air and Space Museum tells the story of the first Apollo space mission and simulates a monkey in flight.
