I have a sock monkey collection. I have five of them and my collection is growing! Sock monkeys have been around since the 1800s.

Sock monkeys come in many different costumes and styles. They can have hats or hair. If sock monkeys have hair, they are very rare -- like the ones I have. Their costumes are always different colors than their fur. They always have a nose that sticks out and have a happy face. They are very different than they were in the 1800s. Sock monkeys are fun to collect and play with. May you'll start a sock monkey collection of your own.
