NOTES if not utilizing circuitry:.

Things limbs really gently.
Minimally stuff the tail (perhaps just at base where tail joins with body) to prevent the tail from weighing down the monkey excessive. Reduce the tail length (perhaps to half) to minimize weight.
Do not stuff the body excessive- make certain that the triangular base can be inverted so that your monkey can sit well. If you stuff it too much, the triangular base will puff out, making it impossible for your monkey to sit and most likely to topple over.
