February 8th marked the Chinese New Year, ushering in the Year of the Monkey.

To celebrate, we pay homage to our favorite, the handmade and handcrafted Kay Bojesen Monkey. This little guy not only inspired us to start rattle me that, but serves as the standard bearer for each special piece offered on our site. We are proud to offer a curated collection of baby and toddler gifts demonstrating the highest level of craftsmanship and creativity, while also serving as heirlooms to last for generations to come. Bojesen certainly subscribed to such view, believing toys needed to be "simple, solid, and inspire children to play". Thus the Monkey was born in 1951 and continues to serve as a treasured piece for both children and adults alike. 

Take a peek at our little photoshoot staring a favorite little friend. Here's to the Year of the Monkey and tastemakers like Kay Bojesen.
