Sock Monkeys are so cute! I bought one for my five year old daughter when she was two, and it’s the one toy that all the other kids want when they come over! When I came across the DIY kit at SockMonkey.net, I knew it would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays.
There are three DIY kits available. I received the Deluxe (Pre-Sewn) Do It Yourself Sock Monkey Kit. It included everything needed to make a sock monkey, and best yet, for non-sewers like myself, everything is pre-sewn! It comes with a step by step instruction sheet that is easy to follow. Although it was fairly simple to make this monkey, it did take some time. I hand stitched rather than using a sewing machine and that’s why it took a little extra time. It should be much quicker if you use a sewing machine. It also took a while to get the tail stuffed. My monkey didn’t come out perfect, but he is cute, and I am more than happy with the final product! With this kit, no two monkeys will be exactly alike. When I showed the monkey to my two year old she had a huge smile on her face. Monkey’s are one of her favorite animals right now. She gave hime a big hug and kiss, and I know he will become one of her favorites.
I think this kit would make a wonderful gift for older kids, teens and anyone else out there who loves Sock Monkey’s. The recipient of this kit will have a great time putting their very own sock monkey together. You can also make the monkey yourself and give the finished product as a gift. Either way, it will surely make someone very happy! The Deluxe (Pre-Sewn) Do It Yourself Kit can be purchased for $22 at SockMonkey.net.
