Monkey Business is a pawn shop ran by a lazy mandrill. Here, you can purchase useful items, neat backgrounds and decors, craft items and nesting material, as well as sell any unwanted items.

The non-background and decor items that the monkey sells are considered to be gameplay buffs, but are not considered to be extreme enough to be sold in the Oasis. You can purchase items that will age up your beetles and adolescents, buy some extra food, nesting material, or toys, and even some pretty non-dynamic backgrounds and decorations for your lions!

Selling to the Monkey  

Lionesses bringing home a bunch of extra food that you don't need? Tired of Coffee Locusts and Stag Beetles infesting your hoard? Or are you sick of seeing the skulls of your enemies? The monkey will gladly take all that off your paws!

At the top of the page, you'll see a section where you can either Trade In Your Items or do Bulk Trade-Ins.

The first section, Trade In Your Items, is for individual item sales.

The second section, Bulk Trade-Ins, is for selling all items in a stack. The monkey gives a slight bonus for selling items in bulk; the more items you have to trade in, the more SB you'll get, compared to selling them individually.

You can also sell your rotting items to him! Clicking on Sell # Rotting Items will automatically sell any rotting food (food with 1 day left until expiry) in your hoard.

If you accidentally sell an item to the monkey, you can contact the Modbox to get the situation sorted out. To prevent the monkey from getting his grubby hands on your merchandise, you may want to consider burying any items you don't want to show up within the trade lists!

Decor Crafting  

At the top of the Monkey Business page, underneath where you can sell items to the mandrill, you'll see a neat image that links you to a special crafting page!

Bundles & Specialty
