When I was a little girl, my grandmother made all us grand kids one of these sock monkeys. I so enjoyed mine, and had it for many years. I don't know what ever happened to it though. I eventually made a few myself, but was not the kind grammie that gave one to all the grandchildren. They are just not the kind of toy that is as fun as it was fifty-some years ago. For the past few years at Cracker Barrel, they have had these sock monkeys as Christmas ornaments. So I picked up a number of them and gave them away. My little sock monkey brings back a lot of memories of being a child and my grandma, even if it isn't the original one.
