Give a gift that will last a lifetime.
Kay Bojesen's Monkey was born in 1951. A little Monkey with the great personality which has come to signify a gift from a very special person.
For christenings, birthdays, school leavers and weddings. A classic and a dear friend for life – from being a popular toy in the playroom to a much-loved design icon in a future home.
The Monkey is manufactured from plantation teak and limba wood.
As the teak is from a plantation, there may be dark spots and stripes, but exposure to air and light will reduce these over time. Accordingly, there will be variations in the wood from monkey to monkey, making every single monkey utterly unique
The beloved monkey is born in 1951. The teak and limba monkey is living proof of Kay Bojesen's conviction that the lines in any product need to ‘smile’.
The smiling monkey is probably the best known of all Kay Bojesen's toys.
The story goes that Kay Bojesen was asked if he wanted to design a hat rack for an exhibition of children's furniture. The idea behind the monkey was that its long arms would bring the pegs down to child height and its short legs would provide the pegs for hanging hats and scarves.
