is collaborating with Danish designer Jakob Burgsø, founder of the design company Boyhood. The collaboration sees Boyhood produce wooden Julius the Monkey design collectibles in Burgsø’s signature style. The partnership, which possibly will see Boyhood bringing other Paul Frank characters to life, has been brokered by Futurity Brands’ European agent Plus Licens.
“Being a young man in the 90s that had followed and loved the Paul Frank universe makes this project fantastic,” says Jakob Burgsø, designer and founder, Boyhood. “It was a great honor being asked to bring Julius the Monkey to life in wood. I can’t wait to show Julius to the world, it has become a masterpiece. The result is beyond my expectations and we have definitely made a classic design collectible that will bring joy to many generations.”
The collection of Julius design collectibles comes in two sizes, small and large, and will start launching in the fall of 2022 and will be available

The craftsmanship put into this work is astonishing, and the finished product reflects that.”
