Sock Monkey, Katrina Kay

Katrina Kay, the winged monkey, is the star ribbon trapeze performer for Monque du Cirque's traveling show, "AHHHHHH!!!" She is incredibly strong, flexible and can spit snot balls like a gorilla. Don't let her girlish good looks fool you. She swears like a truck driver and isn't afraid to perform motorcycle tricks. However, all this toughness, masks a gentle little monkey who fears ballroom dancers and dryer lint. She loves romantic comedy and cuddles like a pro if you catch her in the mood.

Legend says rubbing the bright pink belly of a spotted circus monkey brings physical strength and long life. If she lets you get that close, let us know.

Sock Monkey, Brian Chimpernell

Brian Chimpernell is pulling himself up by the ballet slipper ribbons after being rejected from the Monque du Soleil. As a rare winged monkey, Brian was destined to become a great ribbon ballet performer, but a puce body paint allergy has made that dream impossible. However, Brian is trying to stay positive and teach Zumba at the local YMonkCA while waiting for his big break choreographing Ballywood films.

Legend states that rubbing the belly of a winged monkey will bring fortune in career and finances. Brian hopes he can catch a little of that luck for himself in addition to sharing it with others.

Merde Brian!

Jethro, The Little Pirate Monkey

Jethro is a mini-sock monkey made of new navy blue and gray socks with a pirate patch on his belly and a red heart bandanna on his head.

Jethro just showed up on our doorstep one night. We think it had something to do with one of our wilder sock monkey's nights out (Owen, we mean you), but Owen will only grab his crotch and say, "Billy Jean is not my lover." We're not really sure what that means.

Regardless, Jethro is a very sweet little monkey. He loves Pirates of the Caribbean, mashed peas and carrots, rock and roll and oddly enough, classical flute music. He sleeps through the night and doesn't cry much. He's very easy to care for and child safe.

Prima ballerina and magic wand connoisseur, she has carried the lead in hundreds of ballets, including Swan Swamp, Les Syphilis, Barbarian and the Beast, and Giselle.
