dotty monkey

The goods: Just about the best doll your little guy or gal could have. Every monkey is different and they're all stinkin' cute. Honestly, it's sort of like a snugly, friendly fashion accessory for your toddler.

What makes them even more adorable? Dotty Monkey is owned by a daughter and Mum who live 250 miles apart in Scotland and England. They're charming. And, really talented!

Something else fabulous: All the monkeys have these great names like "Sapna" and "Bisley" and "Esme" and "Hamish the Eco Warrior". Yes, Hamish the Eco Warrior. I told you it was for boys too!

For little ones: Pram kittens. Honestly, I love the name alone. Can I call Hazel my pram kitten?

They also make great aprons, bags and really cool puppets!
I adore this mish-mash of patterns and colors. It's just right!

Bottom line:
If you're looking for a gift for a little person - a dotty monkey would be a big winner! (Um, can this series of favorite shops also be my kids' Christmas wish list??) :)

Giveaway!!! I can't believe I missed this part! Dotty Monkey is GIVING AWAY a monkey to one very happy reader! You know the drill: visit their shop, take a look around at all the lovely things, then come back here and leave a message telling me what/who you love best. Comments close next Tuesday. I hope you win!! ;)

Ha, as I was reading, I was just thinking about adding this to Margot's ever growing Christmas list. What do you get a two month old anyway? This looks just about right!

I like the stripy soft monkey Jarvis. I have boys and that would be perfect for them!

Meredith said...

These are positively adorable! And I just have to win because I know my husband would never let me spend 40 bucks on a 'toy' (he just doesn't have the love of handmade quality that I do, hehe). But I so love Jarvis and Esme! So I would have to choose between getting one for our son Gabe or our future daughter, whom Esme is one of our top names for!!!

Leigh said...

Bisley is my favorite! so so so cute!

I'm thinking I love the....
Hot pink soft monkey Bisley ... and would love to win it for my precious niece!

My favorite monkey: Sunshine soft monkey Natalia! These are pretty sweet, and also probably great for sensory learning, with the different fabrics and such. And you're right-- a great gift!!

Oh it has to be Sapna for sure. I dig the bright colors! Always so nice to have an unusual gift to give a loved one.

Douglas said...

mrsarainey said...

I love them all! I don't think I could pick a favorite, all the monkeys rock and the pram kitten is adorable. I have decided that my 10 month old son Jack loves all things sock monkey, and these monkeys would be great friends with his sock guys! He must have one.

It's very hard to pick what/who I love the most, it's all so cute. But, I think my daughter would love the Polly monkey since she's done with fabric with purple flowers. My daughter loves all things purple!

Once, I thought I won a giveaway, and I contacted the vender and got everything settled, then they had an intervention and told me that I was not the winner, and please stop harassing this nice home crafty lady. She did not give me the prize. Not even out of pity. But then my sister won a prize from her and gave it to me. The end.

Can I win this one, please?

The Bee Hive said...

Natalia would look fantastic in Scarlett's room...what a great shop!!

These are precious!!! I love monkeys... ok I love calling little kids monkeys hah but anyway. I think these are too cute and would love to have one sitting around in my little monkey's nursery. I looked on the website but didn't see the one I really like... which is pictured in your post. The little girl sporting the cute apron is holding a red flowered one that I like:)
