About Sock Monkey Bizz
Hello and Welcome to Sock Monkey Bizz
My name is Laura and I am the Founder, Owner, Designer, and Creater of Sock Monkey Bizz Toy Co.
For Christmas, 2009, my vision was to create a classic, handcrafted Christmas for my family. I searched for handmade Sock Monkeys (a staple) and couldn't find the perfect fit for my children; so I made them instead. Once the last button was in place and I looked at that quirky monkey's face with his big red smile, I was smitten. I launched Sock Monkey Bizz Toy Co. in 2010 and am amazed by the sock monkey enthusiasm; they are timeless and always welcomed.
Along the same lines for Christmas 2010 - I searched for the perfect stick horse. I wanted a whimsical, not like any other, hobby horse for my littles. I wanted their horses to look as though they were just released from Santa's workshop. My searches fell short for that PERFECT horse, so I made my own. In 2011, I introduced my hobby horse line to Sock Monkey Bizz Toy Co.
I have more than 21 years sewing and handcrafting experience with high precision to detail and perfection. I have created over 2000 Sock Monkeys, Stick Horses, Quilts, and other great one of a kind toys. The thought of children all over the world, playing with MY creations is truly humbling and enchanting.
I sincerely add - I love and take pride in every single stitch of what I do. I draw inspiration from my children, others' children, classic Americana toys and early American play, children's tales, literary figures, as well as my own imagination. I often tap in to the imagination of my former 5-10 year old self and create dolls and toys I know she would love. The possibilities of new creations are endless and I look forward to each and every one.
Please, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me; I would love to hear from you.
