Editor's Notes

May 21, 2020:

While Fingerlings began as a collection of cute monkeys that clung to a child's finger, their popularity paved the way for expansion of the brand into an entire menagerie of creatures. For this update we included some of the more notable critters to join the line.

The most striking variation is the Untamed Radioactive collection of dinosaurs. They still grip the finger but are pretty bulky and their tails occupy more space as well. They're a good option if you want to include a child who doesn't like to play with sweet and cute-sy toys.

The Glitter Dragon is another beast, albeit a gentler version. With the glitter accents and classic tuft of hair on it's head, the dragon fits in well with a child's monkey collection and can even interact with them.

The Original Monkeys are still the essential basis of the entire line, but you can still find plenty of fun variations just in the monkey category. The Mini BFF Collection succeeds in making this toy even cuter, with its tiny matching companion. And the Fingerblings Glimmer takes the brand's glitter monkeys one step further, in allowing the child to bling-out the pet with the included gemstones strips.
