Feed The Monkey is the first packing puzzle from the (in)famous Two Brass Monkeys collaboration. The goal is simply to feed all the bananas to your monkey so that none are left sticking out of his or her mouth. The solution is quite deceptive and unexpected, and I think for a first try they have nailed it!
Construction of this puzzle is impressive. Solid brass ends cap an aluminum core, with the bananas made from very accurate and nicely milled brass stock. The feel and heft of this puzzle speaks to its quality.
Male and female monkies are available; they are identical other than the engraving.

The whole puzzle is so beautiful and very well crafted that I sometimes find myself playing with it for no reason.
I managed to solve it by understanding how it works. It is fun, nice solution and beautifully crafted.
