“Futurity Brands & the Paul Frank team are incredibly excited to partner with Boyhood. The chance to collaborate with such a talented artist like Jakob doesn’t come around often, and Julius has never looked better! The craftsmanship put into this work is astonishing, and the finished product reflects that.”
- Michael Puglisi, Futurity Brands Licensing Manager

For Boyhood designer and founder, Jakob Burgsø, it was love at first sight when he first saw Julius.

“Being a young man in the 90´s, I followed and loved the Paul Frank universe, and that is what makes this project fantastic. It was a great honor being asked to bring Julius the Monkey to life in our wooden Boyhood family. I can’t wait to show Julius to the world. The result is beyond my expectations, and we have definitely made a classic design collectible that will bring joy to many generations.”
- Jakob Burgsø


Julius the Monkey will be available in solid walnut and oak in two different sizes and will be available in stores in late autumn of 2022.
