  1. Hi there,

    I feel in love with a “Pirate Monkey” adjustable folding desk. Corkboard under the desktop logo or character. Steel(?)green legs. Made in China. I can’t find one like it online. Doesn’t look Disney to me. The legs are the same color as vintage Raggedy Ann/Andy desks. Top shows wear, but I still like him.

    Thanks so much,

    Heidi DeYoung
