How cute are these?! Not your mama’s sock monkeys! Toronto based Monkey House has some of the sassiest sock monkeys around. Madge and Sylvia (pictured above) are my all time faves, but she has many others to choose from on her Etsy shop. Love them!

My next plush obsession is Amsterdam based, The House of Mouse. Anna, creates sweet little mice, each with their own personalities. The perfect gifts for your favorite artist, golfer, ballerina, gardener, or Beatles fan (she’ll even do custom work!). Go to her Etsy shop to see more.

Last, but not least, is my favorite local plush designer. Luisa, creator of Pock-it Palz, manages to balance her high school schedule with making some very fun plushy creations. Her designs have been shown in art galleries in L.A., Seattle and Chicago since she was 11 years old… Rotofugi in Chicago has been carrying her line since 2004, and since, her toys have become quite collectible! Great work, Luisa!
