As a child of the 1980s, I don't remember having one of these sock monkeys as a kid. I was at least a teenager before I ever saw one, but I fell in love with them instantly and even sent sock monkey themed holiday cards out a couple of years back. According to experts, sock monkeys became popular in the early 1900s when mothers began using old work socks to fashion dolls for their children, and the rest is history! As a tribute to these lovable toys (and to Polyvore, a free, easy-to-use web-based application for mixing and matching images from anywhere on the web), here are some wearable sock monkey items and accessories for all of your fashion needs. Click anywhere on the picture to go to an interactive version of the photo on my Polyvore profile. Once there, you can click an item to learn where to buy it!
