Make Your Own Sock Monkey!
Make your own sock monkey! Sock monkey dolls are an American tradition that began in 1939. Since then, they have become a world-famous doll! What makes the classic sock monkey doll authentic is a pair of Rockford Red Heel Socks.
Our Mr. Sock Monkey Craft Kit includes the original Rockford Red Heel Socks, felt, yarn, thread, buttons for eyes, our own pattern and instructions, plus the history of the sock monkey. You provide the stuffing for a 20-inch sock monkey. For times when only the original will do, get our Mr. Sock Monkey! (Chair in picture not included)
Fun Fact: The world's largest sock monkey is 7 feet and 2 inches tall (including his tail). His name is "Nelson" (after John Nelson who invented the seamless sock machine), and he lives in Rockford, Illinois, when he isn't touring the country as a goodwill ambassador. By the way, Nelson was made from 44 Rockford Red Heeled socks!
