Etsy Find: Vintage Iconic Sock Monkey

This funky little handmade sock monkey is made from a vintage pattern form the 1930’s – reminiscent of the toys our grandmothers used to make!

“The iconic sock monkeys made from red-heeled socks emerged at the earliest in 1932, the year the Nelson Knitting Company added the trademarked red heel to its product… This red heel gave the monkeys their distinctive mouth. During the Great Depression, American mothers first made sock monkeys out of worn-out Rockford Red Heel Socks.” – Wikipedia

The embroidered eyes make this toy safe for small children. Measures approximately 20 inches head to toe.
