Chester O’Chimp (Mattel, 1964)
Irish chimp Chester sported a cute shamrock printed vest and spoke in an Irish accent to say 11 different phrases. Chester stood 14″ tall and featured
poseable hands and a moving mouth in time with the words.
Chester was part of the Animal Yackers Family. This family included a lion, parrot and saint Bernard. A puppet Mattel dubbed a “cousin” was named Jabber Jaws, even though he didn’t talk.
Chester is very rare and very valuable. Of the family, Chester was the most readily available.
