I like them very much! They're just a different kind of monkey, or well, primate. Orangutans are actually apes not monkeys. (Okay, I'm a geek. :-[) Anyway, I think the adult is really cute and looks very much like a real orang! The baby could be more posable, but the pose it is in is very lifelike and I think it's cute.

The old ones you're referring to are the spider monkeys, I guess? http://playmodb.org/setpics/7897.jpg

 
yes apes sorry  :doh: i prefer this one:
 and from monkeys i like the old ones better :

Oh yes, the gorilla and the chimps! The gorilla is adorable! :love: I do wish they had a smaller remale, though, rather than just a silverback male. I think the chimps are really cute, but they don't look enough like chimps. Wrong colours, and chimps don't naturally stand upright very often. They only walk around on two feet if humans have trained them to do that.

regarding the chimps - i think it's the simplicity they originally designed them with, Bonnie.
I actually do like them, but i wish their head could move further up when they're on 4 feet

Yeah, that's basically the only problem. I pose them doing the ape walk as they are, but they're always looking at the ground. Only other thing is I wish they were black all over, but they wouldn't look as appealing that way, probably. Honestly, I think real chimps are very creepy looking and I'm afraid of them. So PM's version is cuter!

No, I just spend a LOT of time there. I loooove learning about animals!

some chimps do have flesh-colored faces (young ones i think?) and i think they look kind of cute like that, maybe that particular type of money was PM's inspiration

their face could be light brown/purple-ish to make it more realistic, but then again they wouldn't be as cute as they've always been
