Christmas Help - I need a sock monkey!

Hi Mamas-
I need to find a grey traditional sock monkey for my neice. My budget is $20 WITH shipping. I was hoping for about a foot or 1.5 feet tall? Not tiny in other words. Does anyone make them or know where I can buy one? It must be grey and it must be made from a sock not knit.
Thank you SO MUCH! I adore my neice but her request has me a little stumped this year (she is 10) I've already bought her a hat so I am over budget hence needing to find one at a decent price.
Any help is appreciated!
ETA - If any DS mama's make them and would rather I have new diapers I can trade.

I make sock monkeys that I am happy to send for shipping. Not sure if its "traditional" or not though. PM me your email address and I will send you a picture. It also won't be that big. Its mens sock size big.

Re: Christmas Help - I need a sock monkey!

Are you looking specifically for homemade?

I bought this one for DS a couple of years ago. Sadly he didn't love it as I wanted him to and we ended up selling it at a yard sale. But it was cute.

Walgreens of all places has big sock monkeys! I went to grab one for DS (due in 3 wks) for his nursery bc it is sock monkey themed but the store I went to only had the pink girl version left. We have a Walgreens on every corner so I'll keep looking. I should have just bought it when I saw it the first time. It's about 1.5-2ft I would guess and $20. I didnt see it online.

If you look up Julius the Sock Monkey, by Paul Frank, you can find lots of stores and options of where to find one.

I found one at Hobby Lobby with the Christmas Decor. It was 50% off and HUGE.... like toddler sized. Regular $50 but on sale for $25.

I was just at farm and fleet and they have bigger ones for $12 and change. The stuffed brown/tan ones. It was about 20 or so inches long it looked like.
