The Monkey Who Set the Beat

In the past few weeks we have discovered that Luke loves puppets. A lot. Intensely. It started with his friends, Red Bath Guy and Spider-Bath Guy. He loved them so much that we submitted to an impulse puppet buy at Buy Buy Baby last weekend. After much deliberation and some test-driving of a Cookie Monster puppet, a Bert puppet, and a rejection of all Baby Einstein puppets (suck it, Disney), we settled on a sweet brown monkey that appears to have zero origins in a licensed character. His new puppet friend has a checkerboard lining, so we first named him Dicky Barrett, but decided that was too twee (or as twee as ska can be?), and settled on Prince Buster.

As you can see, he loooooooves him! Especially when Dad is involved!
