All toys have a place in our hearts if our kids love them and play with them. And what’s better than a handmade toy that doesn’t come in a plastic clamshell package capable of cutting your fingers off? We found some soft and cuddly creatures, most of which are lovingly designed and made in Alberta (and that’s about as close to the North Pole as we’re prepared to get this season).
Silly Little Sock Monkeys are exactly what they sound like. They are monkeys made from socks—a classic fave. Designed by art teacher and mom, Holly McWilliams, Silly Little Sock Monkeys are available in a variety of outfits and attitudes, ranging from pirates and princesses to brightly colored baby fare. Consider these toys as customizable, playful works of art. They range in price from $12 to $30 and take approximately one week to construct from order.
