Here at Sisters ‘N Cloth we love introducing you to new Work-At-Home moms. Today we are pleased to introduce you to Kamala and her company, Drool Monkey Organics.
Drool Monkey is a certified organic, heirloom-quality teething lovie that is also practical and versatile for mothers. While there are other lovies on the market there is nothing like Drool Monkey.
Drool Monkey was designed and created by founder, Kamala Corkin as an organic solution for her drooling baby. All babies like to put everything in their mouth. Kamala needed an organic and sanitary alternative to occupy her curious infant. After a few different prototypes, Drool Monkey was born! Drool Monkey proved to be a safe, organic solution for her baby: no toxic dyes, no chemical flame retardants, and no synthetic fabrics. And it’s versatile: a cloth teether, doll, rattle, burp cloth, and blankie all in one loveable monkey. It quickly became her daughter’s favorite “friend” and her greatest convenience.
It took us two years to finally custom-weave the “perfect” fabric. It’s thin yet strong, extremely soft, absorbent and will wash and dry beautifully. All of these qualities meant it was also the best thing to wipe your baby’s delicate skin or our sensitive noses. We made hankies with the traditional idea for them in mind…noses. We have now found that parents are using them for a variety of things:
* My favorite use with my newborn son was to lay it on the shoulder of anyone holding him. Then his face and mouth would be on the hanky (which I knew was clean and organic) and not their clothes.
*My husbands favorite use was to take the hanky, that had absorbed my scent, and use it to soothe our baby when I was away. He would just put it up to his nose and he would instantly calm.
*A sleep specialist in San Francisco is now using our hankies as an example of the ideal newborn sleep aid due to the size and breathability of the fabric.
*There is the adorable monkey face in the middle of the hanky to give kids a target to aim their coughs, sneezes and blows.
I met Kamela in September when I won the Drool Monkey teether (which made a nice Christmas present for Nehemiah!) It was a couple of weeks later that I was sent an email explaining that my teether had not been sent because the emails had been lost after the ABC Expo. When I did receive my teether, I was excited to find a Drool Monkey hankie added to it as a happy for being late. Since I knew I wasn’t going to use the teether, I fell in love with my hankie. So in love that I had to share it with you guys!
These hankies are absolutely adorable, and as a plus they are amazingly soft. I had a bad cold and used these hankies exclusively. My nose was much happier with them than it is when I use tissues, and I had a cute little monkey to keep me company. They are definitely a fixture in my purse now, too.
I had originally planned on using the hankie as a lovey for my daughter, but that didn’t pan out because I kept on using it. But it is the perfect size (8″ X 8″) for a small little travel lovey…if you can force yourself to not use it.
After multiple washings and crumplings, these stay true to size and hardly show any wear. And if you really want to impress people (or if you realize you had forgotten to take pictures the night before the review goes live…ahem…) the hankies iron back into crisp loveliness easily. These hankies are soft, durable, and absolutely precious. I think everyone should have a set!
I have a thing for monkeys. They are just so cute! So I’m a bit in love with the adorable monkeys on the Drool Monkey hankies. They are the epitome of monkey cuteness! We also own the lovey, and its so precious, soft, and snuggly!
In addition to being cute, the Drool Monkey handkerchiefs are super soft. I’ve used them on my nose, on my kids’ noses, to wipe away tears, and to wash faces. I had never used a cloth handkerchief before, and I really wasn’t sure if it could be as soft as a kleenex. But it can!
The embroidery is so sweet, but I wasn’t sure it could hold up well to multiple washings. However, after extended use, the border stitching and monkey face still look great, with no signs of loosening threads.
I would love to have several more of these – the biggest issue we’ve run into is keeping our three handkerchiefs clean and keeping track of them!
