At MonkeyShine Studio, we believe in fostering a child’s imagination by encouraging creative play. We believe in quality family time, including cooking and eating together, using fresh ingredients. We buy our food locally whenever possible. Our monkeys are lovingly hand-made, one at a time. We create them using US-sourced materials, in an effort to support American businesses and lessen our carbon footprint.
