Cute little fellow, isn’t he? It’s a stuffed monkey made from a sock. Two socks, actually. One for the body, the other for the tail, arms, mouth, and ears. When times were tight, mothers made toys for their children from everyday items. Durable red-heeled work socks were perfect for making sock monkeys. Popular during the Great Depression, these genuine old time sock monkeys are still made by hand in Ozark, Missouri. Not for children under 3 years.
