Product Description

Product Description

Fashioned after the classic Sock Monkey, these "snug-able" animals are a handcrafted American classic! In the 40's and 50's, people used to make dolls and toys from real red heeled work socks. This is a replica of that wonderful tradition.

Amazon.com

For decades sock monkeys have been made from leftover socks, but in case you've never had the time to make one yourself, here is the genuine item. Soft, simple, and lovable, this 20-inch sock monkey leaves plenty of room for the imagination. His long arms and legs can be tied in knots and his simple face consists of two crescent ears, a wide red mouth, and thread eyes. He's perfect for falling asleep with because he has no rough edges--not even buttons! --Sally James

My father, now in his sixties, had a sock monkey as a child. When my son was born his great-grandmother helped me make his sock monkey, and it was his best friend for many years. He is now 18 years old and has passed his monkey back to me to keep. I have sewn monkeys for 2 nephews and a godchild's child, and recently my grandmother sewed another monkey for my new neice. Having a monkey is a thread that ties all these generations together. They are very durable. The monkey that is 60+ years old is still at my grandmother's house for the children to play with when they visit. I believe that every child should have someone love them enough to give them a sock monkey!

This item is a must for infants and young children. Although it touches my heart because my grandmother made one for me, it keeps my friend's children and boss' child and my dog entertained for hours! It is soft and cuddly and very good quality.

I bought this sock monkey for my wife back in 1999. We were each sort of shock when we first took him out of his box. He was so odd looking. In fact he was so strange that my wife kept him in his bag, next to her bed, for the first week while she got used to him. Eventually, she released him from his bag, and named him Kwame.

Since those early years, Kwame developed a great personality. Mostly, Kwame is irate, and ill-mannered. He loves to race cars, especially in the videogame Gran Turismo (because he watches me play, I guess). Also, Kwame is extremely vain. Because he is the tallest of all the plush animals in our household, he also became something of a bully. He does not get out of line that often anymore.

So why did he save my marriage? We got Kwame when we were engaged. During our first year of marriage, my wife and i both were learning how to communicate, and we both needed to learn how to describe our frustrations and what were feeling. Through Kwame, my wife found an outlet for her frustrations, her desire to connect with my excessive video game playing, and generally provided us a common jester to think and converse about. Since we added Kwame, other plush friends have joined our family, including Peckle, Ichiro and Isaiah. My wife even created a site for Kwame and his pals at [...] seriously. This sock monkey even made it into our wedding video back in 2000.

He's a part of the family, what can I say?

I order the sock monkey to add to my daughter's monkey collection. It is really cute. It seems to be made well. My daughter loved it!

I love sock monkeys -- not just because they're cute and I had one as a child, but because it's so much fun to say "sock monkey." (Try it!) I purchased this particular ape for my 8-month-old nephew for Christmas -- continuing a tradition I started with other nieces and nephews. The toy is well-made, with no small pieces to fall off and cause problems. I'm sure my nephew will slobber on it, throw it around, and love it as much as his brother and cousins love theirs!

While sock monkeys may not be the most adorable creatures, this one gave me new hope. The quality is good, it's soft and just the right size. Now if I can get my one-year-old interested in it, we'll be set!

I've owned a sock monkey all my life, and there is something in the soft yet rough, happy yet sad feel that it conveys. I prefered my sock monkey over any doll or Barbie growing up, and he still sits in my room yet today. I think the long arms and legs and cute face make it an interesting toy for a child of any age.

I brought my sock monkey to the office with me after purchasing it from Amazon.com. When things get busy or I am feeling down, I just grab my sock monkey and we sing and dance together. Sometimes he just sits on my lap and types away on my keyboard with his long floppy arms.
