Spunky Monkeys: Review and Giveaway

When I get within a ten mile radius of a children’s clothing store, it’s as if I am rendered powerless.  I have to go look….and if I look, I probably buy.  I have two children, and it’s probably good that I don’t have more, because the amount of children’s clothing in the house would crush us all.  I am a sucker for quite a few things when it comes to kids’ clothes, and monograms are one of them.  I love seeing my kids in anything monogrammed.  It’s just so classic and so cute.  Therefore, I was thrilled to get to review a product from Spunky Monkeys!

From the website: “Here at Spunky Monkeys it’s all about the love of making custom children’s clothing. ”  Each piece is desinged and made in their shop in Leroy, Alabama (north of Mobile) and is made by local ladies with 100 years of combined experience!   I love this because how many times do you get to support a product that is made right here in the United States?

Spunky Monkeys kindly sent me a precious swimsuit coverup.   This was perfect timing because we had just come home from swimming with friends to find the package waiting.  Emily took off the coverup she had originally had on to try on the new one, and the first thing she said was, “Oh!  Fluffy!”   She is right!  How many times have you put a coverup on your child after swimming only to find them shivering because it was too thin and got damp?  In comparison, the one I got from Spunky Monkeys was soooo nice and thick.  Emily loved the hot-pink flip flops applique, along with her name!   I said I was a sucker for monograms, but I am an even bigger sucker for anything with rick rac!  Check out the towels!  **faints**


Spunky Monkeys offers custom clothing for girls, (look how cute the pillowcase dresses are!)  and boys, custom monogrammed and appliqued shirts, and absolutely gorgeous heirloom clothing! That’s not even half of it…..there are so many more options for your child or for that extra special baby gift, including bibs and burp cloths.  The quality of the swimsuit coverup I received is top-notch, and I will surely be ordering from Spunky Monkeys in the future!  My only problem will be making up my mind……or finding more room in the closet!


Do you have room in your child’s closet for something cute from Spunky Monkeys?  They have generously offered a swimsuit coverup as a giveaway!  One lucky Not-So-Blog reader can select any swim coverup, either boy or girl style, and choose the color, design, name, and size.  Your Spunky Monkey will look cool at the pool in one of these adorable coverups!  But WAIT!  Spunky Monkeys is also offering FREE SHIPPING for Not-So-Blog readers!  If you place an order, choose “free shipping” in the checkout process, no matter the cost of your order, and Spunky Monkeys will have your item on the way for free!  Hooray!  Thanks, Spunky Monkey!

    Spunky Monkeys has so many fabrics to select from…but if you are not sure, just trust Kathy. She has a very keen eye for color and design. My granddaughter, Maggie, is on the “Ourlittleones” page. Kathy made two pairs of adorable ruffled shorts and three interchangeable shirts for her.
    If I win the swim cover-up, I would want the one with the seahorse on front!
