Kay Bojesen Denmark Small Monkey

Give a gift that will last a lifetime. Kay Bojesen's teak Monkey was born in 1951. A little pot-bellied Monkey with a great personality and impish expression that was produced in accordance with Bojesen's motto - that lines should smile.

Full of soul, humour, and with a twinkle in his eye, he has become a classic and a dear friend for life – from being a popular toy in the playroom to a much-loved design icon in a future home.
