About

I first got the idea to start Funky Monkey after having bought some Sock Monkeys for my children one Christmas. I was looking for something Santa could have made, something handmade, personal and unique that could become an heirloom. I was over all the mass produced, plastic, commercial junk you could find in any shop. What I found were Sock Monkeys ! To my surprise and delight they were a huge hit, with the kids and anyone who saw them.

Then it dawned on me “I can make my own sock monkeys !” I can’t say my husband was impressed at being woken up in the middle of the night to discuss the idea of making sock monkeys ! He had to check in the morning that he wasn’t dreaming (or having a nightmare). So here we are with our business Funky Monkey – designing, creating and selling our funky Sock Monkeys to the world.
