Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts That Give Back – Monkeez Makes a Difference

Want to give the child in your life something that also gives back this Christmas?

Monkeez Makes a Difference, a first-of-its-kind, fun, and interactive experience that teaches children the importance of helping others in need. Monkeez Makes a Difference teaches kids that by thinking of others they can make a big difference. In partnership with Genuine Monkeez and Friends, Monkeez Makes a Difference provides a rewarding experience for children through secure online games, “Do Good” challenges, and empowers children to understand organizations that make a difference on a local, national, and global level.

It all starts with Genuine Monkeez and Friends plush characters featuring special Monkeez Makes a Difference tags. Each specially marked character comes with a unique activation code on the tag. With an adult’s help, children follow the instructions on the tag and visit the online gaming site at www.monkeezandfriends.com. There, they enter the code, click on the charity they would like to contribute to, and Monkeez Makes a Difference donates 10 percent of the wholesale cost on each child’s behalf.

The characters are available in a variety of sizes and animals. Characters include monkeys, owls, bears, lions, dogs, cats, pigs, cows, octopuses, panda bears, kangaroos, turtles, koalas, alligators, hedgehogs, elephants, hippos, zebras, frogs, bunnies and raccoons.

  • 7 to 8 inches (suggested retail price is $8 each)
  • Roughly 12 to 15 inches depending on the character (suggested retail prices range from $17 –  $21)
  • Roughly 16 to 22 inches depending on the character (suggested retail prices range from $30 – $34)
