The Adventures of Sock Monkina

If you like Sock Monkeys then you will love this gift guide. Today's blog post offers an amusing story from the point of view of a little sock monkey written by Natalia, age 10. She loves sock monkeys. Every Christmas, we like to add a little something to her collection.

The Adventures of Sock Monkina 
by Natalia

I can’t believe how interesting my life as a lost sock monkey has been. First, my owner Natalia’s sister was sleepwalking in her room and picked me up and flushed me down the toilet! My journey began when I flowed down the sewage pipes and ended up in a storm drain in India. I took a quick shower and tried to catch the next plane back to Maryland. I bought the ticket and got on the plane, but the plane made a crash landing in France.

Although I wasn’t hurt, I was really mad that I wasn’t home so I ran up to the pilot and punched him in the leg because that’s as high as I could reach. After that, I ran to the airport in Paris and tried to buy another ticket to Maryland and luckily, I did.

Finally, I was on the second plane, but it’s the same pilot I had punched, so he threw me out the window and I ended up in Canada. I decided to enter a long distance race that ended in D.C. Once I was in Washington, I caught a cab home. Finally, I made it home.

Sadly, when I arrived home, the dog picked me up with his mouth by the arm, but I didn’t even care. When he dropped me, I ran up to Natalia. I missed her so much that I literally cried a river.  She missed me too and put me in her backpack and took me with her everywhere to keep me safe.

So you can see that I had a pretty weird journey, but I collected a lot of stamps on my passport.

Does someone you know love sock monkeys?  Here are some fun gift ideas for all ages.  I especially love the craft kit from Paper Source!
