 The Story


The Misfit Sock is the profoundly magical story of a sock that has lost its perfect match during the laundry cycle and in a JINGLE is labeled a "misfit." Tossed into a misfit pile and forgotten, the sock loses its zest for life, believing that it will never be loved or happy again. Find out what happens when the misfit sock meets the magnificent spirit of Christmas on the laundry room floor and how the misfit sock inspires other misfit socks to find their purpose by finding their way into the hearts of every girl and boy, because in a hug only a child realizes that a misfit sock is the perfect match for Santa.


 The Misfit Sock


 A "misfit sock" is transformed into a magical misfit sock the moment it is loved by a child or a child at heart. Hang your misfit sock some place special and stuff it daily with Misfit WISH Cards leading up to Christmas Eve.  Then, stuff your misfit sock with gratitude goodies for Santa his elves and reindeer.  When Santa arrives he enjoys the goodies, reads all of the child's wishes and knows enough to leave the sock for next Christmas... and the tradition begins.
