What is the story of the character that represents the business, Monkey Joe?
Monkey Joe is a furry purple monkey. He lives on an island known as Coco-nutty Island. He is a monkey who is healthy, climbed coconut trees, surfed ocean waves, and skateboarded on slate rocks.
Monkey Joe fell from the tallest tree in the island but he was not hurt. He just bounced on a patch of vines. Monkey Joe thought “What fun this is to bounce!”. He enjoyed it too much that he went searching with his friends for more bouncy plates. On their search, they also found slippery algae that they can slide on. Monkey Joe wanted to share his bouncing with others outside the island. He left and makes guest appearances at children’s parties and other events.
