The wooden monkey by Kay Bojesen with its sweet face and light-coloured belly transforms children's rooms into rainforests since 1951, inducing peaceful dreams. The excellent workmanship and the quality of the wood will delight many a generation of children.

The wooden monkey is a part of the wooden animal collection designed by Kay Bojesen between 1935 and 1957. Today, the Danish company Rosendahl Design Group manufactures the wooden animals in close cooperation with Kay Bojesen's family.

On television, the Kay Bojesen wooden monkey has served as a mascot for nature programs and received a permanent place as a prize on quiz-shows. In 2008, the cheeky little monkey was marked out as the embodiment of Danish design for Design bible Wallpaper.
Together with the other wooden animals by Kay Bojesen, the monkey took its place on the unique threshold between fantasy figure and design object. Full of soul, humour, and craftsmanship, this clever little piece appeals to the inner child in all of us.

I'm wishing to have this little monkey in my hands. I've seen it so many times in magazines, books and on the web... I couldn't stand another day without having it. My children too.
