    Default Mama's Got Swag: HEY MONKEY!

    Hey Monkey sock monkey's take an old idea and make it fabulous. Krissie takes the softest socks and turns them into fantastic creations that both you and your kids will adore. Don't let the name fool you, this talented Mama can turn socks into a menagerie of animals like pigs, cats, dogs, reindeer, bunnies, and lions.
    Krissie made a monkey for my newborn baby boy and a set of three little piggies for my three kids. I had seen her creations before, but nothing compared to the personalization and detail she had gone into for these four little creatures. The monkey (who we named Monking) had my names son embroidered down his long tail, a crown fit for a king, a sweet little knit sweater, and a scar and smile to match my sons. There is no doubt who this monkey belongs to! The piggies were equally gorgeous, each with an initial to match their owners' and accessories to make them unique.

    I can't say enough how much I love Krissie's creations, but my opinion doesn't matter nearly as much as my kids' and all three of them adore their special little animals! On any given night, my son can be found wrestling in his crib with Monking, the girls tucked in tightly with their piggies. It's been almost a year and a half since they received their prized animals and they still look fantastic. The craftsmanship is unparalleled!

    The beauty of her work is that they are so customizable. From their clothes, to their colour, to any little details that make your child unique and can be put on a monkey. They make the absolute perfect gift for a new baby, toddler, child, and even teens who need a reminder of just how special and unique they are. They have become my go-to gift for the really special people in our lives.

    I bet your child has some sort of special cuddly stuffie. Most kids do right? But is it as unique as them? Was it created just for them? Well that is exactly what Hey Monkey offers. When I first approached Krissie about monkeys for my kids I had no idea just what an amazing product I was getting. All I was thinking was that MY little monkeys needed some sock monkeys of their own.

    We talked about things that were important to me. I wanted them to sort of match. Like a brother/sister pair. I wanted their names on them somewhere because I was hoping they would become a treasured keepsake. I wanted something Irish if possible. Oh and my daughter was going to be 6 so I wanted her to be able to dress hers or do something with it other than just cuddle. Krissie also made sure she knew a bit about my children and their personalities too. Needless to say, my simple sock monkeys were sure to need a bit more effort and thought than I had intended.

    Krissie took on the challenge without even batting an eye! She searched high and low for the perfect green polkadot material and matching green sweat shirt material. She gave my daughters monkey a swim suit (did I mention she loves to swim?) and matching dress. My little guys had the most adorable sweater and tie. Their names found a home on the tails, which I have to say was perfect since my daughters name is not short.

    However the best part - the part that makes us laugh to this day - is how Krissie got their expressions just right. My daughter's sweet and sassy smile and our sons cheeky disposition. They were perfect! They are perfect. To this day these two monkeys hold a special place in my children's hearts. They love that they both have one and that they match. They love that they are cute and cuddly. Most of all they love that they were made with care just for them!!

    Do you have a smart phone? I find if I do it that way it shows up as me, not LM's. Tell your DH to enter it for you, I'll know who he is.

    They're really awesome. In the pic I especially love the one holding the baby - the expression on its face is just so snuggly and cosy looking.

    I don't do Facebook, but I emailed and crossed my fingers!
