The 'Wild' Wild Friends

In NICI Forest, everybody is always busy.. Let's see what our wild friends do today!!

In one corner, we can spot T.G. and Big El..

A few metres away from them, Zebra and Mo are spotted..

Not far from them, Bison is looking for his friend, Mr. Hobs.. It turns out Hobs is having fun with Melinda..

So, Bison decides not to bother them.. Then, what does Bison do? Check it out..

Moving from the grassy land to the swamp.. Hmm, what's going on here??

Somebody is peeping..

Hopefully, the cats don't mind if mr. Kroko joins them..

Under the shade of a big tree, the ladies are chit-chatting..

Haha.. All our wild friends are surely busy today.. They have lots of activities (if you count playing dead as activity.. =p)

ps. Do you notice who is missing?? Make a guess.. ;D

Strange Zebras

In the middle of NICI forest, three zebras are having a meeting.

Here are some things they were discussing..

White Zebra: Hee.. Hee..

White-Black Zebra: Hee?? Hee... Hee..

Hee.. Hee.. Heee!!!

Do you understand what they say?? I don't.. =_= Let's ask our zebra friends, NICI Wild Classic Zebra and Wild Friend Zebra I..

They are trying to listen to the meeting

Can they understand??

Zebra I: ?? ?? What are they talking about??
Classic Zebra: Hmm.. Dunno.. Weird.. 

Hmm?? If our zebra friends cannot understand what they are saying, then... Maybe the three 'zebras' are not zebras at all.. =p

ps. This post is for Marcus, who is a big fan of zebra.. Hope you enjoy. =)

Whose Eggs are These??

In a one fine day, three little Dinos, Diego, Trevor and Tyson, are having a walk in the NICI forest. Suddenly, they spotted something familiar. THEIR EGGS!!!

But, why are there 4 eggs? Whose egg is the last one? So, Trevor, Diego and Tyson collected their own eggs.

Suddenly, Dino 'Drago' comes and said, "That's my egg!!". He points to the last egg left there. So now, all eggs have owners.

The eggs started to hatch.. First, Trevor's egg..

2nd, Diego's egg..

3rd, Tyson's egg..

And, finally, Drago's egg..

Ups.. Do you notice that Drago's egg is not a dinosaur?? It's a bird..

Hahaha.. So I guess Drago has mistaken the egg.. =_= Poor Drago..

I Got Verification from NICI Germany... It's ORIGINAL!!! Yayyy...

Today I received an email from NICI Germany regarding my product feedback on this monkey. I copy paste the email from NICI Germany below:

Dear Stephanie,

please find below an official check from our side:

webbing label old one without star, new one with star (border line different – can happened, different productions)
paper tag, there are differences, and the green one was used as monkey was ordered as basic article additional there were some improvements of pattern.

So all monkeys are original  Nici articles.  

Mit freundlichen Grüßen * Best Regards

Email: dominik.werner@nici.de

So now I am pretty relieved to know it is original. At least according to NICI itself.. =p

Viva Monkey!!! ;)

Fake Monkey or Original Monkey?? Help me identify..

Today, I went to Orchard Road to meet old friend.. On my way back to the bus stop, I spotted a 'weird' NICI Classic Monkey in Takashimaya..

After thinking for a while, I decided to buy it since I never see this monkey and thought that she will be a nice partner for my 55cm dangling monkey at home.

But... When I compare my new monkey with my old 55cm dangling monkey, there are some strange differences which I believe they should be the same.

Here are some of the differences:
1. My old monkey is smaller than the new one while actually their sizes should be the same (I believe so)
2. My old monkey has NICI tag like all my other monkeys while the new one has NICI* tag (makes me thing she is weird)
3. My old monkey hair is darker than the new one (maybe the new one is blonde version)
4. My old monkey has NICI Classic Wild Friend picture tag while the new one only has a plain NICI* Wild Friends picture tag (weirder..)

Here are some photos of both monkeys..

NICI* Tag (taped with the picture tag)
New Monkey
Old vs. New (notice the hair color)
old vs. new (see the size difference)
old vs. new (the new one has bigger palms and feet)

like mother and son =_=
old tag vs. new tag

Besides comparing the new monkey with my old monkey, I compared it also with my fake NICI monkey (which I bought from my school bazaar) and with Jill Husky tag. See the comparisons below:

I wonder whether my new monkey is original or not.. I am pretty sure that it is original although it is a bit different than my other monkeys. Hopefully somebody can help me verify this. >.<

Poor monkey.. I hope she is 100% original..
