I love supporting Canadian companies when I purchase products for myself and when I’m looking for giveaways for my readers. For Canada Day, I have some Canadian inspired giveaways for you, starting with a product hand made by a small Canadian business on the East coast.
Monkeys and More started in 2014 and is an online business only. Monkeys And More hand makes sock monkeys, sock moose, and sock pet dolls. Lucky for them, they have acquired the #Canada150 licence in celebration of Canada’s 150 years!
Monkeys and More has a wide range of dolls, not just the Canada licensed line. I really like Heather the Sock Cat, the monkey mermaids are a lot of fun too. These stuffed dolls are recommended for age 6 years and older.
I am giving one of my lucky readers the chance to win this adorable William the CANADA 150th Sock Moose in my Canada Day giveaway.

These unique dolls are handmade one at a time with love and care! It takes about 4 hours to make a fully dressed sock moose from start to finish and they are all made by hand in Canada.
The dolls are very well crafted, you literally can see the care and attention that was put into making them. The day my package arrived I was having a rough time and was pretty stressed out, but when I opened the package it light me up with joy and brightened my day. They are super cute and will be loved by you or anyone that you gift them to.
These hand made dolls can be ordered online and they will ship to anywhere in Canada and the US. And if you’re anywhere else in the World, just contact them directly and see if they can ship to you too. The ordering process is no-nonsense, simple and quick. Monkeys and More have been receiving large volumes of orders, which means you have to plan your order in advance if you want it for a specific occasion. The current lead time is 7-9 weeks to create your order. Patience is the key. The giveaway prize took a little longer but it was well worth the wait.
I have to admit I was getting a bit nervous whether the prize would arrive on time, so I emailed Monkeys And More customer service. I received a reply within a very short time and certainly faster than I expected. Their level of customer service is top notch. I received an update on my order and the approximate shipping date. It was super simple and it set my mind at ease. I know that sometime’s it can be hard waiting so long for an online order, however, this is a very small company which is hand making your products after your place your order and in queue after the previous orders are filled. You can email them about your order any time and they will be prompt at replying with an update. Plus they offer shipping updates on their Facebook page too.
When I opened the package I almost contemplated keeping William myself and cancelling the giveaway. Hold it! But I just kicked myself (not literally) for not ordering more than 1 of these cuties so I had a keeper for myself. Sad for me but lucky for you! I will definitely order more from Monkeys And More again.
