The Wooden Monkey, designed by Kay Bojesen, is a beloved classic of Scandinavian design that has transformed kids’ rooms into jungles and sparked dreams of far-away places since 1951. It has a permanent role on Danish television as the mascot of wildlife programs and as a prize in quiz shows. Each monkey is crafted by hand in Denmark, giving them all a unique and charming personality.
In 2021, the Wooden Monkey’s 70th birthday was marked with a special edition made of sustainable upcycled wood. The Anniversary Monkey is adorned with a one-of-a-kind mosaic pattern made up of different types of wood – each monkey’s colours vary according to the kind of leftover wood available at the time of manufacturing. The Anniversary Monkey features the words “70 år”, Danish for 70 years, on one of its feet and is only available in a limited edition.
