Solar Monkey climbs on his own power, gives your kids some green street cred

Anybody accuses you of not being green enough, just ask them if they want to touch your Solar Monkey. Exposed to a bit of sunlight, this little fella climbs up a string, hand over hand, to the delight of hippie children everywhere.

It'll cost you 20 bucks and some assembly is required, but hey, solar power never does come cheap, at least not yet. No word yet if the government plans to subsidize solar monkeys as part of its economic stimulus package.
