The Sock monkey, an American craft, straight from the 97% cotton Fox Mills Original Rockford Red Heel Sock.

A new toy, with a vintage feel.

Your 19" from top to toe (that's more than a foot and a half of monkey!) heather brown monkey is designed with features meant to show its sock roots, with exposed edges on the muzzle and ears, sewn with a blanket stitch (ears) and whip stitch (muzzle) with double and triple stitched (with sturdy cotton string) hand attached appendages for stability.

And of course there's the iconic red mouth and red bottom. Both originated as heels of the Red Heel Sock.

Each monkey is unique and slightly different. All are hand cut, hand assembled, machine and hand sewn, which results in a monkey with personality as well as poise (the posterior is formed to allow easy and stable sitting).

Because there’s no greater joy than watching a child, or child at heart play with a sock monkey. The swinging by the tail, the propping in hillarious poses, the poking at the nostrils. Sheer delight. And they say that sock monkeys are cheaper than therapy.

Made of: All new materials
The Sock, which is made of: 97% cotton - 2% acrylic - 1% nylon - 2% lycra®
