A sock monkey is a type of stuffed toy made from hosiery and fashioned in the likeness of a monkey.

The sock monkey probably evolved in the 1910s or early 1920s from dolls made from discarded socks. The earliest known claim to making the monkey dolls dates to 1919. Sock monkeys made from red-heeled socks could not have appeared before 1932, the year the Nelson Knitting Company of Rockford, Illinois added the trademarked red heel to its product. The Red-Heel brand sock has included instructions on how to sew a sock monkey in every package sold since the mid 1950s, after widespread application of the product in the field of monkey manufacturing by inventive homemakers became apparent to the company. Most "vintage" sock monkeys found today are probably not older than the late 1950s. Many date from the 1970s.

Sock monkeys remain a popular toy to this day, although not as prevalent as teddy bears. The manner in which sock monkeys are made and the materials used in their creation remain largely unchanged from the initial toys, though great variety exists. Indeed, some modern sock monkeys are not even made from socks at all.
