    What a cute and delightful piece this is. He appears to be studing those chess pieces quite intently.

  • Thank you Jim – I couldn’t decide if he was the winner or the loser, but then my son said I have the chess board facing the wrong way anyway (to the front instead of to the baby gorilla) LOL, so I’ll leave it up to the viewer to decide :)

    I honestly didn’t pick up on the board direction. I mean I see it clearly now, I think my focus must have been primarily on the gorilla. Tell your son that was a pretty smart idea.

  • He is a smart fellow and is the only chess player in our family Jim – even his older brothers won’t play him because he beats them all the time. Chess is too tactical for me!!! :)
