Sock Monkeys by Jan Willett of MonkeyShine Studio, Boston

As a sculptor, I am fascinated by the imaginary line between art object and plaything. Each of my animals is lovingly created as both a soft-sculpture and a toy, equally at home in your curio cabinet and in your child’s arms. My approach to the sock monkey – an icon of the inventive American spirit – is to re-create it for a new generation, as living folk-art and an invitation to play.

My sock monkeys are handmade with love in the USA, using American materials, and featuring recycled cotton fiber. They are machine-washable and crib safe.

Please visit my website for stories, pictures, and more information about my small business!

Welcome to three lovely new friends! Join our merry band of simian sock siblings
