Typing emoticons is a fun way to add something special to e-mails, instant messages and texts. Creating animals using keyboard characters is a clever way to make someone smile. Just a few keystrokes and you will have a funny monkey face that will inspire a giggle from your recipient.
Type an "@" symbol first. This will be the monkey's ear.
Add a left parenthesis, like this "(" to form part of the monkey's head.
Type the monkey's face with two carrot keys and a dash, like this "^_^."
Finish the monkey by typing a right parenthesis, and another "@" symbol, and the finished product will look like this; @(^_^)@.
