Theme of the Day – All about Monkeys

Love Monkeys or know someone who does ?   Here are some great gift ideas ….

1. Zoo Packs & Zoo Lunchies from Skip Hop
Absolutely fabulous backpacks (Zoo Packs) and lunch bags (Lunchies) from Skip Hop.  Great design with brilliant features, we especially like the banana zip pull.  Would say the are ‘too cool for school’ but that would defeat the object of course, as they are completely perfect for school !
New to the Skip Hop range are the Monkey Zoo Bookends, also very sweet and very functional.

2. Monkey over-the-door Hangers
Just because something is very practical doesn’t mean it can’t be fun and groovy too, we love these monkey door hangers.  With  three little boys / monkeys at home, would could fit the bill better ?
Set of 3 available in brown and lime.

3. Decorating walls with a animals / monkey theme ?  2 great options:

The Animals of the Rainforest Makecover Kit includes a set of brightly coloured stickers of all rainforest(y) animals (couple of monkeys, toucans, palm trees .. you get the picture).
For a much more unstated look, we love the Wee Gallery Jungle Wall Decals.  Primarily in black & white they are perfect for newborns but also delighful and interesting to an older child.  Monkeys feature alongside lions and lots of lovely jungle foliage.
Wee Gallery also produce a set of Art Cards in Jungle theme which a beautiful and unusual gift for a newborn and can be used with the Kikkerland Mobile to make the perfect cot mobile for baby.

4. Monkey Print Cot Bedding and Accessories from Cloud Cuckoo
This is one of our favourite monkey lines.  A very funky range of products including cot quilt (which doubles up as playmat, love it), cot bumper, baby sleeping bag, super lovely hooded towel, baby bundler (lovely retro nightwear thingy, check it out), swaddling shawl and laundry bag (love, love it).

5. Mini Monkey Beanbag from Cocoon Couture
Beautiful pinwale cord beanbag, available in Navy with Red Monkey and also Green with Blue Monkey.

6. Knit Your Own Monkey Kit
Always a favourite, especially as a gift for 8 years and up, everything you need to knit your very own monkey in a box (complete with his very own hat & scarf!).  Currently in our sale and at just over £11 what a bargain.
7. Five Litttle Monkeys Song Mitt
Young children lllllloooovvvvveeee singing and seeing the parents embarrass themselves singing.  Song Mitt great for learning numbers and the tune and just about big enough to hide behind too.

8. Congo the Monkey Suitcase and Backpack from Picturecase
Trolley Case and Back Pack perfect for young children and yes… does meet hand luggage requirements on planes.

9. Monkey Baby Suede Shoes, Cotton Playsuit & T-Shirt
Lovely on their own or together, very sweet monkey baby shoes, and cotton clothes.  Very very sweet.

10. Hide Away Monkey Puppet
Brilliant monkey hand puppet also with 5 mini monkey finger puppets and 5 (peelable!) bananas. Children will love to play hide & seek with him.

and finally, Monkey Birthday Card
Part of our greetings card range, he is sooooo much fun and perfect for the age group.
