Just kinda curious, are woot monkey's a thing of the past now? I mean, I keep hoping to see them pop up but they never do. I just double check to see if the company that made them still is in business, and they are so...

What gives? I thought there was a poll a while back asking what kind of design we wanted, but I have yet to see those monkeys or any others.

I hope I don't sound nit-picky here, but I thought they were sort of Woot's mascot and all...

Excellent question.

I don't recall having seem them around for awhile either.

I can ping Woot Staff and inquire.

Yes please! The monkey in this video missing his eyes lost a hand last week. I think his time is almost up.

They're not gone. They're on vacation. Or doing an internship in the warehouse. Or taking a short hiatus. But they're not gone.

I have a whole box full of monkeys. One is a large one but the rest all small. No clue why I bought them.

Another one just lost a hand. Do you have monkey insurance?

I have a few, but my daughter was deathly afraid of them and ran away screaming in terror whenever we launched one. Now they're put away somewhere so the new puppy doesn't start to get the taste for monkey's. (though my daughter would probably love to have the dog take care of their screaming for good...)

I have several hanging around, including the giant one. Just seeing them makes me smile!

I have a ton of screaming monkeys and give them to kids for Christmas and Birthdays if I really, Really don't like the parents.

I bought one a few years ago in a woot off and my dog has since destroyed it. I wouldn't mind picking a new one up!

I don't remember seeing them in at least two years. Which is great, because the screamers in mine all died and I don't think a loud one would please my cat.

Poor monkey. Hilarious though. With a dog, I am surprised any still live

Several people have them in the office. When one goes off, you can be certain to hear one (or two) call back from across the floor.

The little one died over the weekend. Found its limp body on the floor with it guts pouring out. The larger one lost his right hand and vision a while ago, but it's putting up a good fight.

But but but... I want a monkey

Anyone have any idea if they'll ever be brought back?

I gave my monkeys to a pediatric surgeon with an office full of toys.

The monkeys are the only things he had a kid try to take off with

I had a small one for my key chain I would torture my cat with. But it no longer has a voice... I really really want another one for my key chain and a big one to set off when my beloved kitties think they own my bed...
