Fingertip Fun with Fingerlings
Kids love these. They're super cute and make great stocking stuffers. For kids who like to collect toys, they're a good range to start collecting too.
The initial baby monkey Fingerlings toys from WowWee were massively popular back in 2017 and went viral. They kept running out of stock. That popularity continues today but with a wider product range.

What are Fingerlings?
They're cute miniature baby animals that cling to a kids finger, and can be taken anywhere. They're interactive, have their own personalities and react to sound, movement and touch to become adorable little electronic pets.
A lot of robotic technology has gone into creating these small toys. Mini robots are what they are. They have sensors and a microphone that enable them to respond to your actions in specific ways. 40 different sounds and animations will result from the the way you touch them, how you move them, and the sounds you make when playing with your own baby creature.
How to Play with them
You will easily learn how to play with your Finerling by experimenting with different movements.
Pet them - Show your Fingerling some TLC. Stroke their head and see how they respond. Their eyes blink, they make cooing sounds.
Tap their head - there are sensors on either side of their heads. Tap either side, once or twice to see what responses you trigger.
Let them hang upside down - They have a nice curly tail that lets them easily hang upside down on almost anything. They find upside down very amusing!
Make them toot! - Yup! Gross though that is, Fingerlings are not averse to bodily functions. When you cup your hand over your baby creature, it will emit a response. It'll be a different sound when you do it inverted too.
Grip them - Let your fingerling grip your finger or anything it feels safe with.
Blow a kiss - when you do this to your fingerling baby, it will make mushy sounds back. It might sneeze as well.
Make them talk - Fingerlings have a lot say. Over 40 different sounds in fact. And they'll be different depending on being held upright, upside down or lying down.
Let them fall asleep - when you rock your baby to sleep, watch their eyes close; listen to their cute sleepy sounds.
Baby Creatures In The Fingerlings Crew
The fingerling monkeys set the crew up, and most of the monkeying around now will be done by the set of Glitter babies. Fingerling monkeys with bright glittery color schemes.
These cute playful fingerling pandas are the gentle and sparkly members of the Fingerling Crew.
Rainbow chasing baby unicorns have the same touch, motion and sounds technology of their fingerling compatriots. Magical!
The baby dragons range from being fiercely loyal like Noa (Kaylin is fiery too!), to being hot-headed like Sandy and hot-tempered like Lexi. They are brightly colored with accents and glitter, and with a furry top tuft.
Cute and adorable, the baby sloths respond in typically slower fashion than their Fingerling cousins. Their software makes their heads move slower just like a real sloth, and their sound effects are slower too.
If you prefer something more fierce and dangerous, go read about these WowWee Untamed Raptor baby dinos.
WowWee Fingerlings Playsets
WowWee have created a series of playground playsets for Fingerlings. Three are shown below. They include a playset, and a baby monkey or two, which are only available with the playset.
Jungle Gym Playset with Baby Monkey Aimee
Monkey Bar Playground with Baby Monkey Liv

Fingerling Minis Blind Bags
Fingerling Minis Blister Packs
Minis are collectible pencil toppers. They're not interactive, just mini versions of the series 1 characters. They're rated as being either popular, rare, legendary or ultra rare and with 36 different styles, they are a great collectible.
They come in either a Blind Bag or a blister pack which contains either a monkey, unicorn or sloth. Each includes a Mini, plus a mix-and-match bracelet and tail charm.
Great gifts and stocking stuffers. They even look good hanging upside down on your Christmas tree.
Boris and Bella Plush Interactive Pet Monkeys
These won't fit on a fingertip, but Fingerlings Hugs are soft and affectionate, interactive, plush monkey pets. Their long arms can give a big hug
You can tickle them, and swing them round your head. You can throw them in the air, and shake them to make them fart - really!!! You can hang them upside down or just rock them to sleep. And they are always ready for hugs. Lots of them.
Fingerlings Names & Colors
The original fingerlings crew of Bella, Boris, Finn, Mia, Sophie and Zoe are still available, but to use WowWee's words, they 'will be taking some well-deserved time off in search of exciting adventures'. Chances are they'll be making an interesting return at a later stage! Until then it's the new Glitter Girls taking center-stage for baby monkeys.
