I decided to enhance my current LARP character i would create a little friend to carry round.... with having very little electronics knowledge i decided to MODIFY and excising robotic friend... I found him in the form of Dave the Funky Shoulder Monkey 2010 Toy of the year in the UK
I do not have step by step pictures, but via the use of videos and such im sure you will get how i transformed Monkey to Man

Step 1: A bit about Dave
Dave is a wonderful little remote controlled animatronic spider monkey produced by WOW toys... he sits on a little harness you wear on your shoulder.. he is controlled by a little remote with 5 buttons, pressing different button combinations in different ways will produce various different emotions and actions... have a look at the little chart you get with him in my pics...
I bought two on ebay for around £5-£10 each... their RRP is £25
Step 2: Time to Skin the monkey!
