Barrel of Monkeys is a 1960s preschool game by Lakeside Toys. Andy owns an early 1990s version (with red monkeys and yellow barrel), which is produced by Milton Bradley. In Toy Story, while Andy's family was gone to Pizza Planet, the toys used the barrel of monkeys to try to rescue Buzz, but fail miserably when they realize that they need several hundred more to build a ladder long enough for "Buzz" to climb. They appear during the outtakes in Toy Story 2 in which Mrs. Potato Head packs them into Mr. Potato Head's compartment, along with some monkey chow. In Toy Story 3, Woody, Jessie and Buzz are attacked by a herd of monkeys.

They were all put in the attic after that.
