Her collection is on display at the Joplin Public Library. Each month this case displays unique collections. Danya Walker is her mother and she says the monkey hobby has lasted a long time.
"She's done monkey costumes, monkey birthday cakes. If it's got a monkey on it, she probably has it," states Danya Walker, Mother.
So why does she love monkey's so much?
"I'm not sure. I don't know if they're cute of just funny looking," states Samantha.
She says having a hobby is fun and also makes it easier for people to buy her gifts.
"It gives you something to do, makes shopping for Christmas and birthday's a lot easier," states Samantha.
Every time she goes shopping, she's always on a monkey search.
"There's so much monkey stuff, like purses and stuff like that, it's a monkey!"
Whey you get that many monkey's, you start collecting the weird. Like monkey lipstick, and zombie monkey pillows.
"The weirdest thing is monkey sheets, shower curtains, and I have a zombie monkey pillow pet," states Samantha.
However, there is a certain monkey she hates.
"I hate Donkey Kong. He's just weird, he's throwing stuff everywhere. He's a meaner monkey."
