Rockford Sock Monkey

Rockford Original Sock MonkeyAdopt a sock monkey today! Rockford’s own Nelson Knitting Company produced the socks that give the sock monkey its unique flavor.  In 1955, the company was awarded the patent for the doll and Rockford officially became the Home of the Sock Monkey!

All of our monkeys are 20 inches tall with an 8 inch long tail and span 19 inches from paw to paw.

These original brown sock monkeys, upon request, come with a Birth Certificate, showing that they are from the Home of the Sock Monkey, Rockford, Illinois! Please email us & specify boy or girl.

Please choose your monkey below.

Note: The Original Brown Rockford Sock Monkeys come with button eyes and red hair.
