A child I work with came into nursery with this sock monkey and oh my gosh it was the cutest thing I had ever seen. The child in me came out and I asked her mum where she got it from! She told me it was from a Facebook page. So I searched for ‘Sock monkey’ on Facebook for quite a while until I came across Sock Monkey UK. Find the page here: https://www.facebook.com/sockmonkeyuk.hants/?fref=nf
It is ran by a lady called Allison Kiln. They are the cutest things I have ever seen, there are plenty more sock monkey websites on the internet but I couldn’t find any that looked nearly as cute! I came across this page about 2 days ago to realise that on the 20th June she wrote a post to say she’s stopping the business due to her daughter going in and out of hospital which is totally understandable! I was a little bit gutted until I decided to look on her Etsy shop anyway, where she was selling (I believe there are some still available) ones that she had already made rather than custom made.
Thats where I found Harry. He’s a cute yellow and maroon coloured stripy monkey! I got him for half price, the day after I ordered it he was already out to ship! I got him this morning – was such a quick delivery 🙂
You can also get mini sock monkeys etc! and other sock animals 🙂 Allison said on the Facebook page that she might be re-opening closer to christmas so if that is the case then this baby is going to have so many sock monkeys! I am a little bit obsessed with them. I even saw ones with the baby’s name, weight, DOB. etc on the foot of the animal or a personalised one holding a blanket with the baby’s name on. Cuteness overload!
Here is a picture of Harry 😀
I love that he is also great for either a girl or a boy so I know I will definitely use him 🙂 I just can’t get over how cute they are! I think he was originally priced at £12? but using a promo code I got him for £6 something. So including delivery he didn’t even cost me £10! Great quality, amazing delivery. Overall 5 stars 🙂
Thank you Allison 🙂
