If you feel that 4-6 weeks is too long for you to receive your order, please do not make a purchase. These charges and time frames are unfortunately out of my hands.

Thank you all so much for your understanding during this difficult time. Stay safe and well and take care of you and your family.

About GusandOllie

Sales 79
On Etsy since 2008

Fine art in Melbourne to monkey-making in Germany!

All things handmade have always been close to my heart. I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember, culminating in graduating from Art School. Having a studio has always felt like Home.

After meeting my husband and moving from Melbourne, Australia to Hamburg, Germany together, I found myself in the unique position of being able to work on my art full time. This is how Gus & Ollie was born.

Sock Monkeys have been around since the early 20th Century, originally made from old socks for children of families who didn't have the means to buy toys. I have worked hard to create multiple original designs, with craftsmanship that has been perfected to be safe, robust and above all adorable & unique. No two are the same. No two are named the same.

Complete with much experimentation, frustration and triumph along the way, creating these toys are a labour of love.
