How it works
If you are looking for a fun toy for the upcoming special event or birthday for your child be sure that the kids will appreciate a toy that is interactive, small in size and hi-tech. Being on a recent hunt for such types of toy we have come across to Fingerlings and discovered that Fingerlings is the newest must-have toy that is loveable, wearable at your finger, a kind of interactive pets. They are interactive toys or better said pint-sized robotic monkeys that can cling to your fingers and react to your voice and touch. If you look at the top toy lists of the year on many sites it is evident that fingerlings are on each of them. The adorable five and a half inch interactive finger puppets are made by the toy company WowWee.
These tiny monkeys are made for being a companion and designed just right for kids’ fingers and are not ordinary toys but small cute robots in form of a monkey with curled tails that can be used to cling it on the finger. The toy can be also put on a finger because of its cupped arms and legs that create a kind of slot for kids to place on their finger. Once they are put on the fingers you can start interacting with these pets. They can make noise, blow kisses, and make adorable sounds by giggling or bubbling. Fingerlings are just adorable for playing and because of their adorable and cute face very popular among youngsters.
Since they are so popular and their popularity grows up every day we decided to review the WowWee Fingerlings Baby Monkey & Mini BFFs Ashley and Chance as one of the Fingerlings and see why everyone is buzzing about the popularity of this toy.
This Baby Monkey can imitate more than 40 sounds and animations; they can do silly things, giggle, simulate sleep noise, go to bed, blow a kiss but also make farting sounds. There are similar monkeys in this Fingerlings line and if you decide to buy another toy like this they can interact among themselves. When you are tired from all the noise that the little monkey and its best friend make, you can just turn them off at a switch that is positioned on the back of the toy’s head. If you do not want to play with the Fingerling and he is still switched on, the little money will go into sleep mode or it will become idle if you leave it for 5 minutes without interaction. The mini monkey does not do anything just hangs on the best friend’s tail. This product is made from non-toxic, safe ABS plastic.
They are small and cute and come into life just with turning the on/off switch that is positioned on the Fingerlings’ head. The kids can start playing with this little monkey by putting it on a finger. This little toy has a sensor in its mouth and once you turn them on they can respond to your voice and movements and specific actions like clapping your hands or blowing kisses. The more you interact with the Fingerling it will vary more in its reactions, effects, sounds, and movements.
Kids at 5-6 years can find enjoyment and humor in this toy because of some interaction features like farting and burping, although, little older kids like nine-year-olds can be put off by this type of interaction but can find enjoyment in other features like the cuteness and the technology in the toy and that they are wildly adorable by blowing the kisses back or blinking with the eyes.
This adorable baby monkey called Ashley comes with its mini best friend Chance both in bright colors (turquoise and pink combination) that are appealing for the kids. These fingerlings are monkeys and the best things that monkeys do is hanging by their tails and swinging upside down. When they are tired from staying upside down you can always take them and because of their size cradle them in the hands.
When you rock the small baby monkeys they close their eyes and fall asleep. When they wake up they will need all your love and care so when you are petting them you will be more than happy from the pleasant and lovable sounds that these fingerlings make.
Some other additional entertainment features that these fingerlings can perform depend on your reactions, too. If you clap your hands the little monkeys will make adorable head turns, if you blow kisses to the monkey it will blow the kisses back to you. Funny and crazy reactions that will make you ecstatic can be caused by touching its head or blowing into its face. If you touch the monkey’s head it will mimic farts. Rock it gently if you want the monkey to drift off.
Depending on the action that the child does this interactive toy performs a different activity or makes sounds. Fingerlings as said has 40 realistic monkey sounds and the kids are more than certain to react to these sounds with energetic actions. You can take care after this pet in so many ways. They respond to your touch and they happily blink with the eyes. You can put the little monkey in bed for a short nap and the baby monkey will react with sleeping noises and when they feel the love this baby monkey makes soft cooing sound.
Another thing that is worth mentioning is that because of its growing popularity, there are many imitations on the market and many of the customers are doubtful about the originality of the toy. In order to protect yourself from fraud make sure you buy it directly from retailer and websites like Amazon and before you buy it, make sure that the manufacturer is WowWee, the actual company which owns this brand Fingerling.
