Javier – El cazador de monstruos

(The hunter of monsters)

Javier is a pudgy and fun-loving monster who


is in need of a friend like you. His favorite
activities include croquet, dancing the hokey
pokey, and beating up those pesky monsters
under the bed. He has the best table manners
and enjoys fine tea and crumpets. He's just the
right size to cuddle up with and share your
pillow at night, or to lend you that extra bit of
courage to make the final jump and not land
in the lava.
