Day Two: For Sock Monkey Lovers

The story of the sock monkey goes way back, back before we thought. The popular icon goes back to the Victorian Era, when a man named John Nelson immigrated to the U.S. and created the Nelson Knitting Company in 1880. However, the toy didn’t become as iconic until The Great Depression when old Nelson socks would be reclaimed into toys for the kids.

At Green 3, we consider those who love our sock monkey products to be those who are still kids are heart, are playful and have a wild sense of wonder. If you, or someone else you know, fits into these categories, then this list is the one to read as part of our 10 Day Gift-Giving Blog Series.
