Rosendahl wooden monkey by Kay Bojesen

New addition to our Wannekes online store is Kay Bojesen's wooden toy monkey manufactured by Danish Rosendahl. This happy wooden monkey is cute as a button and is the perfect present for young and old! This classic design toy comes packed in a beautiful gift box which represents the painting by Henri Rousseau (another wonderful artist by the way, represented in numerous museum collections). Believe it or not but the world famous Bojesen Monkey was designed in 1951. That's more than half a century ago for all you fellow monkey lovers! Kay Bojesen's wooden Monkey is made in Denmark from teak and limbawood. The Bojesen Monkey is a genuine piece of modern Danish design made with superior craftsmanship. The Bojesen Monkey with the prankster’s look and the light colored belly, has transformed kids’ rooms into jungles and sparked dreams of far-away places since 1951. On Danish television it has a permanent place as a mascot in wildlife programs, and as a prize in quiz shows.
