Fingerlings Review And Giveaway!
Have you heard of Fingerlings?
We hadn't until recently when we had the opportunity to try one out for ourselves. Fingerlings (from WowWee) are little interactive toys in the form of super-cute baby monkeys.
We were sent Zoe:
There are actually six different Fingerlings to collect, each of them with their own little character:
MIA - Purple Fingerlings - Hi - I'm Mia! I'm a purple monkey with white hair and I’m curious about the giant world around me!
SOPHIE – White Fingerlings - My name is Sophie and I’m full of loving monkey hugs, with a white body and purple hair!
BORIS – Blue Fingerlings - BORIS is my name. Laughter is my game! You'll love my blue and orange colour combo.
FINN – Black Fingerlings - FINN is my name. I'm black and blue and I swing to the beat of my own drum!
BELLA – Pink Fingerlings - My name is Bella. My bright yellow hair complements my oh-so-pink skin. I express how I feel with cute monkey babble!
ZOE – Turquoise Fingerlings - My name is Zoe and I love life upside down! My perfect purple hair stands out against my turquoise blue skin.

They are so much fun to play with, I must confess there was a small battle between myself, N and E when it arrived because we all wanted to have a go!
It loves hanging onto your finger and knows when it's being touched, spoken to, and even hung upside down! Our little Zoe is pretty talented at swinging round and round our fingers, she's clearly a fan of gymnastics like N.
Zoe comes to life with 40 ways to play and 50 sounds to let us know how she's feeling. You just can't help but say 'aww' when she starts interacting with you.
She makes realistic monkey sounds, has adorable blinking eyes and her head turns as though she is checking out her surroundings. I kind of feel like I have another baby in the house!
Fingerlings can pretty much grip onto anything and I particularly like that she is even able to grip onto little hands. As well as our fingers we tried putting her on our fork at dinnertime and a pen (although it wasn't easy to write with her hanging on).
There are all sorts of ways to get a reaction from the Fingerlings, you've already seen that you can swing them but you can also pet them, kiss them, AND rock them to sleep! E has a lovely way of cradling Zoe in her arms until she starts snoring - it sometimes takes me a while to get her in the right position to fall asleep but E definitely has the magic touch.
We were having so much fun playing with our lovely little monkey that N and I decided to film a quick YouTube video:
I think my favourite Fingerlings feature has to be when you blow on her and she blows kisses back, those little kisses sound so sweet.
Fingerlings are suitable for ages (5+), now I know E is only two but there was no way we would get away with not letting her have a go!
They are available to order for £14.99rrp through: Amazon.co.uk, The Entertainer and Smyths. They are also available through some Tesco stores.
