New stuff for the ladies over at Tolky Monkys

tolky monkys girls hoodie

My favourite Spanish-based character-themed clothing company has gone and released a few new tees and hoodies that are just for girls (and guys that have a body-shape for women’s clothing, presumably). They aren’t all entirely new designs, but they are all pretty good looking, I do hope some of those hoodies end up available for guys too because I really like the one I’ve used as the main pic here.

Two new character tees at Tolky Monkys

tolky monkys character t-shirts

In the past I think I’ve said that Tolky Monkys are my favourite character-based t-shirt company in Spain, well, I’m going to stick my neck out and say that I now think they’re the best character-based t-shirt company in Spain, Portugal, Andorra AND Gibraltar, they’re really moving up in the world!

They’ve got a great style and I can’t see myself getting bored of it anytime soon, and €22 euros per tee is definitely acceptable.

I often talk about consistency when it comes to t-shirt brands, and it’s fair to say that Tolky Monkys are consistent. Every time they release new characters and designs, I’m happy to see them, and that doesn’t always happen with even my favourite brands, so clearly these Spaniards have found themselves a winning formula, and hopefully they’ll stick to it. The new tees are only available for men at the moment as they haven’t been printed on women’s tees, though I know some girls that prefer the shape of a men’s tee, so perhaps I should be describing these as unisex, and they’re all €22 each.

womens t-shirt by tolky monkys

Small man, massive hat. A couple of days ago I went for a haircut, and since it was sunny and I couldn’t be bothered to tame my long locks, I wore a hat, and after I got my hair cut and the lady put some product in it, I still wore the hat. You know why? Because I like hats, and you look a bit odd walking around town carrying a hat, I’m sure no one is looking at me wondering why I’m carrying a hat, but still, it just doesn’t feel right. Please note this tee is only available for the ladies (it’s also available on white).

Costiness=€22 Buy it at Tolky Monkys



One of the problems with being British, and there are a few, is that when we order clothing from other countries it takes a while to get here, and it costs a lot to get here (even if an order sneaks past customs), so it’s convenient when a shop in the UK does the hard part and starts selling foreign brands. Elelctric Press are one of them that springs to mind, and now I’ve been told about another, Muazo. They currently selling two of my favourite brands, Akumu Ink and some hoodies from Tolky Monkys. Akumu Ink tees are £14.99 and TM hoodies are £34.99, I’ve been told these are sale prices, so I don’t know if they’ll stay that way forever though. Incidentally, I just noticed that Tolky Monkys have got a sale on at the moment, with tees as low as €12 so you might want to check that out.


Hoodies from Toly Monkys

by Andy on January 15, 2010

This info is a month out of date, but if you haven’t seen it before, then I’m sure we can just pretend it’s new and that I ‘m a really on-the-ball blogger. Tolky Monkys, Spains finest character-based clothing label, have released four brand new hoodies for men and women. This is the second time that they’ve released hoodies, and judging by the fresh dusting of snow I woke up to this morning their timing couldn’t be better. One thing I notice about all the desgins is that the colour palettes are all spot on, they really work, but my favourite aspect of these hoodies? They all have custom hood linings that refelct the character on the design of the hoodie, I love it when a company puts in a contrasting hood lining, it can turn a good hoodie into a great one. I think this might be one of those instances, to the point at which I’ll accept the €49 price point, because you could pay an awful lot more for an awful lot less.





Somehow I missed the e-mail with these tees in, which is a pity because I always enjoy checking out waht Tolky Monkys are doing, and this case is no different. They’ve really nailed the olour palettes on these tees, and at €22 they’re pretty reasonable by European standards. I’m going to stick my neck out and say that they’re probably the best t-shirt company ever…. that’s based in Madrid and makes character based shirts… I know, I know, it’s a ballsy claim.

Tolky Monkys Microstories Contest

by Andy on October 16, 2009


Because I’m too busy eating frogs legs (taste just like chicken, I know everyone says that about unusual meats, but seriously, just like chikcen) and receiving blank stares from staff in French builders merchants (tu vend…. ummmm… this?), I’m not participating in the microstories contest this time around, but there are plenty of other blogs that are, so head on over to Tolky Monkys to find out about the competition and all the prizes that are on offer, and make sure you get your entry in before October 22nd.


50% off at Tolky Monkys for 5 people!

by Andy on September 23, 2009


The Tolky Monkys crew have been kind once again and have offered up an exclsuive (though some other blogs may have a code too) coupon code for 50% off almost everything in their store. There is a twist though, only 5 people will be able to use the code, and then it will stop working.

When last year the Tolky Monkys sent the Resales, Sally and Sally, back home, they thought that these naughty twins would never come again to make a visit. They were wrong. Surprisingly, they have knocked at their door and in only 10 minutes they have destroyed the whole studio. How naive they were…

After that, they have created for us a special coupon with a 50% off. You can use it to buy any item of their on-line store except posters and metro-wallets: boys t-shirts, girls t-shirts, hoodies and polos. You have from Wednesday 23rd till Thursday 1st of October to use this coupon: REHIDEYOURARMS. But be quick, only the first 5 readers will take advantage of it. Remember that posters and metro-wallets are not included.

What the devil are you waiting for? Go!


New guys polo shirts from Tolky Monkys

by Andy on June 29, 2009


I guess that there may well be occasions over the summer when you want to where something that is ever-so-slightly more upscale than a tee, a polo shirt may well be the answer to that particular sartorial conundrum, and I’m sure there would be far worse options than picking up a polo from my favourite Madrid-based purveyor of character-based clothing (yep, that’s a niche), Tolky Monkys.

Go straight to the polos here or get more details about them at the TM blog.

If you’re looking for consistently excellent designs, you don’t need to look much further than Tolky Monkys. They have a style that they stick to and they do it damn well. This time around they have changed things up a little bit in that they’re using more of the tee as a canvas by print much closer to the edges of the shirt. Also, they’re finally started printing shirts in women’s XL sizes, by popular demand.

Check ‘em out.



There’s probably not much more that I need to say after such an informative title, but here’s some info from Tolky Monkys anyway:

To encourage readers to participate, we are going to give-away discount coupons for all participants:

1) Those who have already proposed a story or propose new ones: 25% off coupon, regardless they win or not.

2) Those who have written or write at their Twitter accounts to spread the word of the contest: 25% off coupon. You wouldn´t have a coupon because you haven´t written yet =)

3) For those that have written or write at their blogs about the contest
and linking to your blog and our site: 50% off coupon.

We will send the coupons when we publish the prizewinners on 18th March and they aren´t accumulable among them. If someone writes several ideas, he will only have a coupon, that will be valid once.

So, any chance that you’ll join the cool kids and enter the competition now?

I had told myself I was going to take the weekend off HYA, but that Ecko post was too tempting to pass over, and I thought I’d better remind you to enter the Tolky Monkys competition that’s running right here on HYA for another 5 days. As of right now, there is a grand total of half an entry on that post, so even if you think your idea sucks, you might as well throw your name in the hat.

Tolky Monkys need to create some new characters, and they’re having a comeptition to rectify that situation. So, what do you expect the competition? To be. No. You’re wrong, it’s not that. You don’t have to design it, just write about it.

See that character up there in the image? Name it, write a short story about it (250 words max), and you’re in. The easiest part of this whole thing? You can leave your entries right here on HYA.

That’s the short version, so get thinking about your entry whilst you read the rules:

    The contest runs from now until March 12th (next Thursday). I will close comments on this post then, but if I forget, don’t bother leaving an entry after the 12th because it’s not going to count
    There is a maximum of 300 entries to this competition. I know that sounds like a lot, but HYA is not the only blog running this competition, so that’s 300 global entries
    Of all the global entries, the best name, and the best story will each win 4 items of their choice from Tolky Monkys latest collection, which is to be released in April.
    The top two entrants from HYA (as judged by Tolky Monkys) will win a tee or polo of their choice
    You are allowed to enter more than once, so if you have loads of ideas feel free to let them rip.
    There’s also 4 tees up for grabs to 4 bloggers who bring attention to the competition. You can spread the word by linking to the Tolky Monkys sit, the Tolky Monkys blog, by linking to this post.
    There’s also another 4 tees up for grabs to people that twitter the following the message: @Tolky_Monkys Microstories Contest. Propose short stories for a new Character and get t-shirts FOR FREE ::::: RT this and win t-shirts
    Both blogging and twittering the competition does double your chances of winning a tee

Here are the rules in full, and here is the Tolky Monkys blog post explaining the whole lot again (including the other people who are involved).

Now get on it!



Here’s the blurb:

In Tolky Monkys they are scared: – “Oh God! It was ages they didn´t come” – they said to me. It looks like they are talking about the twins, Sally and Sally. They came without letting know. They showed up with their luggage in the Tolky Monkys studio the day after Christmas and they told them that they were staying, at least till the end ofJanuary. Who could say no…

It´s not that they don’t appreciate their visit. It’s the opposite, they love it, but only from time to time because the are really naughty and they don’t let them work at all. They are always making a mess. To start on, they are obsessed with the fact that all the Characters in the on-line store must have a 50% off, with the exception of posters. They were thinking to do a 20% or a 30% off, but the twins managed to destroy the ads and made a new ones. At least they have arranged to do this only with friendly blogs and not with every blog.

So, from Tuesday 13th till Sunday 18th January, they’ve created a special coupon for my blog: REHIDEARMS, with this coupon the first 5 fastest readers will get a 50% off in everything they order. Remember posters are not included.

So, just in case you didn’t get that, the coupon code REHIDEARMS will give you 50% off your entire order at Tolky Monkys, BUT, only for the first five times it is used, after that, it is GONE. Usually I’d like it if you stuck around on the blog to see what’s new, but I understand completely if you feel the need to hurry off to Tolky Monkys RIGHT NOW!!!

Update: TM were having a few problems with their English language site this morning, so if you made an order and it went through, it still may not have actually been ordered on their system, so please e-mail them to check.

5 new characters to love at Tolky Monkys

by Andy on December 13, 2008

Tolky Monkys have hit the nail on the head once again with their character-based designs, this time incorporating Space Invaders into one of the tees, which as well all know practically guarantees them a place in my heart, as if they weren’t there already. Catch the rest of the designs in the gallery.

50% off at Tolky Monkys for 5 HYA readers

by Andy on September 8, 2008

Tolky Monkys has hooked up HYA (and a few other blogs) with an exclusive coupon code that will give you 50% off your order… but there’s a catch. This coupon will only work five (5/cinq/cinco/funf/quinque/wu/panch/go/khamsa) times. Once it has been used five times it will no longer be functional, which basically means that you’re going to have to be quick to use this, so as soon as you’ve finished reading this I suggest that you run, don’t walk, over to Tolky Monkys and buy something.

The coupon code is: HIDESEPT08

If the 5 uses don’t get snapped up quickly (I have no way of knowing who and when it has been used) then the code will expire on September 19th. There is no limit on the amount of items that you can order with this code, so this is be a great opportunity for Americans to pick up something from Europe without having to take out a mortgage.

I’ve never really been all that into polo shirts with prints on them, but I think that this new polo line from Madrid-based label Tolky Monkys might turn me around on this piece of collared casual wear.

As usual, the designs are character based, and I’m really impressed with all of them, the tees are just for the girls and includes some really cute designs, the polos are for guys and girls.

Check out the girls tees, check out the polos.
