Merry Christmas!

I am surprised each year at how quickly Christmas comes.  Every year I promise myself to be more organized to have it all done weeks before the big day, but alas, this never becomes the case.  But this year has been an even faster trip through each day leading to Christmas.  The Spotted Monkey opened its' virtual doors only six weeks ago.  And what a six weeks it has been!

We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and patronage.  We started The Spotted Monkey because we wanted to provide people with a place they could go to find fun, unique and hard to find items that didn't cost your first born.  Judging by the warm reception and orders that keep coming in, we're on to something!

We have been working to line up some exciting and new products to introduce in the new year, and some that aren't even available in Canada!  The Spotted Monkey will continue to work to bring you what you want and maybe even some things you didn't know you wanted.

From our family to yours, may you have the happiest of holiday seasons.  Wishing you health, happiness and love in 2011.

Merry Christmas,

Tarpy is Coming!

One of my favorite things to do is troll the web in search for new products.  And not just any new product, but one that is kid friendly, mom useful, kind to the environment, unique and not readily available.  

Recently I found just such a product.  And it is Tarpy.  Tarpy is an eco-friendly splat mat with a wide variety of functions - dinner time, craft time, picnic time, play time, you name it!  It is compact, nice looking and most importantly, the saver of floors.

Tonya from Tarpy and I decided that it was high time Canadians were given the opportunity to get their hands on such an amazing product.  So, I am happy to announce that The Spotted Monkey will be the very first retailer of Tarpy in Canada.  They are on their way as we speak (or type) so keep an eye out.  You'll want one of these, trust me.
