kids are crazy for Fingerlings. The tiny monkeys that cling to fingers were the hit of the holiday season and haven’t loosened their considerable grip. Now, WowWee, the company that makes the tiny creatures, is releasing a new “UNTAMED” series of the Fingerlings modeled after the one trend that never seems to go out of style with kids: dinosaurs. Honestly, they look pretty awesome. And yes, like their predecessors, they fart.
The new Fingerlings will feature four different raptors, named Stealth, Blaze, Fury, and Razor. Clearly, WowWee is going for an edgier toy this time around. While it’s hard to calculate just how many fingerlings have been sold, most retailers were struggling to restock the product during the 2017 holiday season.
The “UNTAMED” series will come to stores in Canada, the UK, and Australia this week, while kids in the U.S. will have to wait until May to get their hands on the new toy. While you could resort to eBay in order to get the toys early, they should be quick and be prepared to pay a lot. According to CNBC, leading up the holiday season last year, a Fingerling was sold every minute. Also, the creatures sold on third-party sites like Amazon and eBay can sell for far more than the normal price of $14.99, especially as demand skyrockets for a new toy.
