Ok so I just found out that i have two new cousins that were born the other day Cheesy and i was thinking about making them each a sock monkey, the only problem is the button eyes, i dont want any babies swallowing the eyes so my question is, is there any way to make the eyes different so that they cant come off?

How about cutting out little felt circles for eyes, and sewing those on (don't glue them)?  Or embroidering eyes on with thread/yarn (sew a circle, then fill it in)?

And congrats on the new cousins! Smiley

I 2nd the embroidering.  Or, you can buy plastic safety eyes at Jo Anne's fabrics, or Hobby Lobby.  Congrats on the new cuz's.

Ironically, the plastic safety eyes aren't really safe because kids could theoretically pull them out entirely and eat the whole thing  Tongue  Cheaper and easier to embroider, even though safety eyes can be super cute!

Yeah, I didn't think about the sock coming unraveled/pulling apart around the safety eyes.  It's been a long, long time since I had little ones.  I like the idea of embroidering the best of all.  That's what I did on a sock monkey I made for my youngest son when he was little.  I thought it turned out darn cute that way!  So expressive!
