What is Kay Bojesen Denmark?

The Danish brand Kay Bojesen Denmark is world-renowned for its fine and original wooden figures depicting both humans and animals. The most famous wooden figure is the monkey, which comes in different sizes, wood types, and colors. Additionally, there are several hats you can buy to ensure the monkey is appropriately dressed for various situations and holidays, such as Christmas Eve and graduation. The monkey was designed by the Danish designer Kay Bojesen in the mid-20th century, when Kay was asked if he could manufacture a clothes hanger for children. The idea was that the long arms would reach down to the height of the children, and the shorter legs would work well as hangers for hats and scarves. The monkey came to life in 1951, and more than 70 years later, it remains the most famous model of Kay Bojesen's wooden figures.

Which wooden figures are most popular?
