Our keepsake monkey looks great in both patterned and plain fabrics but we would suggest you include one plain item for his face so that it stands out. Just pop in what embroidery option you want, then checkout and you'll receive an email telling you where to send the items of clothing. The Monkey can be made in two sizes - standard (sitting at approximately 25cm high) or large (35cm). The large option is really impressive and a great way to have more items of clothing included. We suggest you send in 4 babygrows or the equivalent amount in other clothing for a standard monkey and 8 items for a large one in order for us to create your beautiful keepsake.
Please do note that there can be a real variation in the appearance of the animals depending upon the clothing that we receive. Please ensure that you do look through the full product photo picture selection in order to get a good idea of how the appearance can vary.
If you select the Large option you will then get the option to add 'weighting'. This means we can make the item weigh the same as your child did when they were born, up to a maximum of 8lb. Please do have a look at the clothing tab above for more information about what we recommend.
We can also add a little pouch internally to your keepsake, which contains a removable and re-recordable sound device, shaped like a heart. The device can be taken in and out of the pouch (which is fastened with velcro) and you can record a message which is played back whenever the device is squeezed. The device is approximately 6.5cm across and can be recorded over as many times as you like. This is a wonderful way to treasure special messages from loved ones to parents or vice versa, for the sound of heartbeats or any other treasured recording.
Once we receive the clothes from you it generally takes about six to eight weeks for us to get your finished item back to you. If you select our Express Service we can do it in under three weeks. If there is a special date you need it for please do make a note of this when you send in the clothes. Please contact us if your order is really urgent (under three weeks).
If you have got a lot of special requests and additions then, depending on the complexity, we may contact you to request an additional payment to cover the cost of making these.
While our keepsakes can be machine washed at 40 degrees, we would prefer that they are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry. The stuffing is 100% CE tested polyester. As these can be delicate items, often made from very well-worn clothes, they can not be CE tested and therefore come with the following Warning: This product is not suitable for persons under the age of 14 years.
