I have been fancinated by this craze for Sock Monkeys and have recently been sent sock monkey related items from various people (living all over the world). The victorians were making sock monkeys when the craze for imitation stuffed animals swept from Europe into North America & met the burgeoning Arts & Craft Movement.

I just love these 'Spock Monkeys' from Craziest Gadgets

And last, but not least... A Hindu Goddess Sock Monkey!
