A beautifully hand-knitted Mama & Baby monkey from Zimbabwe. Each Mama & Baby comes with a swing tag to tell you their names and the lovely lady who knitted them. No two knitted animals are the same.

Made by Gogo Olive which was set up in late 2008 as a response to the huge unemployment problem in Zimbabwe (it currently stands at around 95%), at a time when conditions in the country were particularly difficult.  As well as creating employment for local women the aim was to give them hope as they have the opportunity to use their craft skills to build a future for themselves and their families.

Also available as a keyring or Daddy.
