KIDS WILL GO BANANAS FOR FINGERLINGS

** A Geek Daddy received the featured product for free to review **
WowWee

My daughter went BANANAS when she saw the newest toy from WowWee -- Fingerlings!  Some of her favorite toys have come from WowWee including MiPosaur and CHiP the robot dog. It looks like the toy company has impressed her again with these adorable robotic baby monkeys.  Fingerlings will cling to your finger and are small enough you can take them with you wherever you go. Not only are they cute though but they'll actually interact with you!  She's been playing with the Fingerling that WowWee provided A Geek Daddy to review nonstop since it arrived in the mail.

These cuddly baby monkeys actually come to life within your hands.  Fingerlings can interact with you through more than 40 sounds and animations.  Tap on a Fingerling's head to trigger a variety of different reactions.  Hang them upside down by their tail and see what happens.  They'll show affection when you pet them and fall asleep when rocked in the palm of your hand.  Cup your hand in just the right spots and your Fingerling will even burp or fart! Clap your hands to get your robotic pet to sing or whistle to you.



Fingerlings Baby Monkeys debuted at stores this week and there are six to choose from.  Each one is a different color and has its own unique personality: Bella (pink), Mia (purple), Sophie (white), Boris (blue), Zoe (turquoise) and Finn (black).  Inspired by the rare finger monkey species that are placed at-risk whenever removed from their natural habitat, WowWee found a way to create a safe and playful way to provide every child with their own special fingertip hugging friend.  To help preserve the real life monkeys, WowWee will be donating $1.00 for each of the robotic ones they sell in their first week of sales to WildAid, a nonprofit conservation group that aims to protect wildlife and end illegal animal poaching.

Based upon the reaction my daughter has had to Fingerlings Baby Monkeys and that they are reasonably priced at under $20 these are sure to be a hot toy this year for holiday gifts.  These 5.5" tall toys are designed for children 5 years old and older and feature blinking eyes, turning heads, curly hanging tails, hands that grip and happy monkey sounds that I'm sure will delight kids.  My daughter has been thrilled to play with Mia! Grab one now while you can find them on store shelves!  They're available nationwide in the United States at Kmart, Toys R Us, Target, Walmart and other major toy retailers as well as on Amazon.com.
