Benny Gold Fog-Camo Sock Monkeys - Last Thursday, the team at Benny Gold in San Fransisco was invaded by a couple dozen crazy sock monkeys! These nutty stuffed primates, who have been contained at Benny’s shop, sport the unique Fog-Camo pattern created by Mr. Gold as an homage to San Fran and as a twist to the heavily trended Woodland Camo. The monkeys can be adopted for $40 but take care, these guys are not recommended for adult owners as they are head strong, mischievous and only obey equally adventurous kids.
