PAPINEE is a toy-art collective with a mission to give the gift of imagination to children around the world, no matter rich or poor. Now Harrods has announced an exclusive UK launch of the brand – with a monkey who will bring happiness to all!
London’s most luxurious department store in South Kensington has launched the most adorable soft toy. If you are passing Harrods these days; let your eyes wander through the gorgeous window displays and you will quickly discover the Harrods x Papinee Happy Monkey sitting in between the luxurious high end fashion pieces.
You see, this little colourful monkey happens to be far more than a decorative soft toy! Born in the Chinese Year of the Monkey, he is created for charity, as an an artful cuddly good luck charm to bring you luck and happiness in 2016. Inspired by traditional motifs and charms you can find a four leaf clover, hearts, horseshoe and hamsa hand embroidered across this exclusive design. Children and adults alike will love this happy fella, that will spark positive vibes throughout the year.
Papinee’s mission is to give the gift of imagination to children around the world, fusing inspiration, cultural education, the science of play, contemporary art and impeccable craftsmanship, regardless of the child’s situation.
Whilst encapsulating the world of art, luxury and heritage, Papinee endeavor to give the gift of imagination to children, when they perhaps needs it the most. So after each toy sold in store, Papinee will donate one of their ‘Inspire Kits’, which includes a storybook, colouring cards, colouring pencils and other creative tools, to a child in need. This is in collaboration with the NSPCC.
This blog post id featuring the Small Happy Monkey Toy And Book Set by Harrods x Papinee, that comes with a 33 cm tall Happy Monkey and the Happy Monkey story book. There is a larger version available too, which is 58 cm tall, in addition to small purses and travel bags featuring the same eye-catching design.
We think the Happy Monkey makes the perfect gift for a child who loves imaginative play. And you wouldn’t mind if they left it around the house as it is so decorative in its own way. We also think it would make the perfect gift to an adult – for some extra good luck and happiness, as a great way of saying “I’m thinking of you!” And at the same time, when purchasing this you will be contributing to NSPCC’s valuable work for children; securing a safe childhood, where children are free to dream and have hope and happiness.
The Happy Monkey is available to buy in Harrods from this month, where he will be taking residency in the Toy Kingdom, taking over the department in a dedicated pop up space.
