For some time now, we’ve been hearing about these $49 sock animals and we just had to see what it was all about. Cashmere socks with diamond chip eyes perhaps?
Nope, turns out that Sok-O is even better. These 100% handmade, one-of-a-kind, embroidery-embellished, earth-friendly creatures are the design snob’s answer to stuffed animals. Not only do each of the eight characters look like as if they were lifted right out of a Cartoon Network series, but every one is wonderfully packaged and comes with its own birth certificate. Holy 1983 redux! Although in this case it’s actually a style certificate featuring a birthdate, "footprint" and commissioner signature. And the back stories are great – Bu-Lou for example is accident-prone while Moonie loves his coffee.
Also the names are way better; there was never any Cabbage Patch Kid named Hooligan, that’s for sure. -Liz
Congrats to Philippa S, winner of a Moonie Sok-O!
