about usTom Jones is the owner of Oxford, Michigan's own specialty toy store, Funky Monkey Toys.
Funky Monkey Toys opened August 6th, 2010, in a historic building in quaint downtown Oxford. Our building might be vintage, but our offerings and activities are anything but. We are excited to bring something new and different to our internet friends around the country and around the world.
Funky Monkey Toys offers toys, games and novelties not commonly found at “big box” stores. We carry classic toys, wooden toys, educational toys, games, puzzles, puppets, robots, flying toys, outdoor toys, arts and crafts, mobiles, books and magic tricks. We carry a large selection of realistic-looking plush animals that have been hugely popular.
So what makes Funky Monkey Toys different? Jones, a.k.a. Mr. Monkey, promises our toys are off the beaten path. Those looking for video games or mass-produced toys associated with movies or TV shows won’t find them here. “Our toys are ‘analog.’ It’s all high quality, and an eclectic mix. A lot of the toys are wooden…classic, durable, and often nostalgic for parents and adults,” Jones said. “A lot of customers have said they take a trip down memory lane when they see our toys.”
We love being a neighborhood, specialty toy store. We hope we can capture our quaint-store spirit and share that with our online customers. Click around, contact us with any questions or special requests. We’d love to hear from you!
