61 Primate Inspirations

From Animatronic Apes to Political Sock Monkeys

— February 24, 2011 — Unique
This top list of primate inspirations showcases ads, toys and art that were created with a funky monkey motif. From animatronic apes to political sock monkeys, the furry creatures featured in this top list have infiltrated almost every sector of society.

These primate inspirations bring the jungle creatures to you. The gorillas, orangutans and monkeys featured here almost make me forget the horrors of the monkey overlords in Planet of the Apes.
