Update: 7/14
Sock monkey is now living all over the world - in Australia, Belgium, Canada, England, France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Scotland, Sweden, New Zealand and the UK. As well as 40 states and Puerto Rico! :)

About a year ago I bought a "Tiny sock monkey" from you for my soon-to-be-born nephew. Not surprisingly, the monkey quickly became his favorite toy-- The attached photo is pretty much what he looked like for the first 7 months of his life. Poor little sock monkey got lost at the park recently, much to my nephew's dismay, and I want to replace it for Christmas. Are you still making them? I didn't see it listed on your site, but wanted to check with you first since the Lil Hipster monkey seems to have a lot more character than the other sock monkeys I've seen." - customer email November 2011

"You made a sock monkey for me about 8 months ago, shipped to my sister in NYC for her shower. I just wanted you to know that sock monkey is in used and much-beloved:

I am particularly delighted by this as my own sock monkey (named Monkey) was a faithful companion who slept with me every night for 35 years. He was patched, tattered, missing eyes and ears and his hat was shredded, but he was much loved until my dog finally demolished him.

So another generation of sock monkey love is born with the one you made, and I just wanted to say thanks!"

"You are not going to believe this- just came back from vacation with my family and my son (who is almost 23) and husband just about came to blows over the sock monkey. My son wanted to take him home with him! Is there any way that I could get 2 more from you...Your's are the cutest ones I have seen!!" email dated 6.9.10

"We have one of your Sock Monkeys, my ten year old son wanted a "real handmade" sock monkey. He LOVES it! He sleeps with it every night, and every little trip we take to grandmas etc, he goes in the backpack. In fact, he risks not being a cool tough guy every Thursday after school when he takes monkey to sit on his lap at his school library reader's club. His little sisters can't wait to get their own."
