OK, Hear Us Out — the Hottest Toy of the Year Is Actually Pretty Freakin' Awesome
If your kids have been dreaming of having a new best friend they can literally carry in the palm of their hands — and you've been dreaming of not hauling dozens of toys around — your prayers have finally been answered. (And your purse just got a sh*tload lighter.) Meet WowWee's Fingerlings: small, interactive robotic pets that are designed to wrap perfectly around your kiddo's finger. Aside from being straight-up adorable, they're also pretty much guaranteed to keep your little ones busy on that long car ride to Grandma's house. Kids can pick from colorful monkeys, a mystical unicorn, and a sweet sloth. Pretty cute options, right?
Although these little guys are small in size, they certainly pack a punch when it comes to features. Fingerings can do everything from blowing kisses to murmuring sweet phrases depending on which way kids are holding them. They also move like a real living being, so be prepared to see life-like blinking, head turning, and tail wagging. The best part? They react to your child — so the moment your mini me speaks up, expect a swift response from their new BFF.
Parents be warned: many models are totally out of stock at Walmart and Toys R Us has set a one-Fingerling-per-family rule, so get them before they totally sell out. Scroll through to see a video of a Fingerling in action and to buy one (or three!) for your kids just in time for the holidays.
