Want This Toy

I have always had a  thing for interesting toys, so here is another one that I want…

You may not recognize this monkey, but it has been around since 1951. It was designed by Kay Bojesen, and appeared on Danish television as the mascot for a wildlife program. There are number of toys that Kay Bojesen designed through out his career, but the one that stands out the most is the monkey. Believe it or not, the guy was a silversmith!  The 30″ version is available through DWR and like the smaller version is made of teak and limba wood. DWR is also offering up the Elephant and Bear too. Great for a kids room, or just chillin’ on the sofa.
