When I first heard "Mohawk Monkey" a few months ago, I cheered! I just knew it would be an ALL-BOY pet. You know, mohawks, monkeys, boys... They just seemed to go together and I was so happy Ganz had designed a pet specifically to appeal to boys.
Not so. Out comes a pink-trimmed monkey. What?!? What girl truly wants a mohawk monkey? It has a title that even appeals to boys MOHAWK MONKEY! I knew in my mind's eye exactly what it looked like, too! Didn't you picture it differently when you heard the name? Of course you did! No one would have thought of a PINK-trimmed mohawk. AArgh.
There are so many boys on Webkinz who would have LOVED to have another macho pet to play with. But no, Ganz makes another girl toy. Trimmed in pink. Oh, yeah, it has blue in the trim as well. Is it a boy-type of blue? NOPE. A girly blue. And PINK. On a mohawk monkey.
Who runs their pet research and development department? No one thinking about what boys want, I am quite sure. And do they poll boys on what they want? Not a chance. Guess how I know? No new BOY pet clothes and a PINK-trimmed MOHAWK MONKEY.
Aaagh! <throws arms up in frustration>
Rooting for the boys,
