Just Monkeying Around – the year of the monkey


Guess what… it’s the Year of the Monkey!

There’s much to look forward this year – the Euro Football Championships, the 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games, and the Queen turning 90 (which means two big celebrations for us!)

But forget all that, I’m most excited with it being The Year of our favourite fury creature. The Chinese new year celebrations will begin on February 8, 2016. I’m not quite sure what all of it means, (if you’re interested there’s more here), but it’s a good excuse to do my favourite thing – shop!

If you’re looking to commemorate the year, here’s eight high street delights for the little monkey in your life..


  1. Monkey toy from JoJo Maman Bebe
