I received a Fingerlings Baby Monkey to help facilitate my review.
I recently was offered the opportunity to review a new product from WowWee: a Fingerlings Baby Monkey
Today, August 11 – aka #FingerlingsFriday – marks the launch of Fingerlings’ nationwide U.S. availability wherever toys are sold, including Toys ‘R Us, Walmart, Amazon and Target. Additionally, in association with Wildaid, WowWee will be donating $1.00 for every Fingerlings sold in the first week.
Inspired by the rare finger monkey species that are placed at-risk once removed from their natural habitat, WowWee found a way to create a safe and playful way to provide every child with a fingertip friend. As part of its mission to bring these monkeys to life without endangerment, WowWee will be donating $1.00 for every Fingerlings sold in the first week of sales to WildAid, starting on #FingerlingsFriday. An animal conservation nonprofit, WildAid aims to protect wildlife and end illegal wildlife trade.
Designed for children ages 5+, each sweet and silly Fingerlings critter is just 5.5” tall and features over 40 sounds and animations – including happy monkey sounds, adorable blinking eyes, heads that turn, curly hanging tails, and hands that grip. These perfect primate pets provide endless ways to play – you can swing them, pet them, blow them kisses, and even rock them to sleep!
Fingerlings Baby Monkeys are available in six different colors, all with unique personalities. Kids will fall in love as they meet Bella (pink), Mia (purple), Sophie (white), Boris (blue), Zoe (turquoise), and Finn (black).The entire line is perfect to play with, share, and collect!
My take: This little baby monkey has captured all 3 of my children’s hearts! She is super cute and her reactions to touch are varied and adorable. The boys like to make her burp and toot while my daughter loves to blow kisses at her and receive an air kiss in return. You can rock her to sleep like a baby, hang her upside down, pet her and talk to her to get different reactions. She has been hanging on their hands, their pencils while they do homework and even hooks onto their shirts via her tail.
