• What kind of batteries does my Fingerlings baby monkey require?

Fingerlings requires 4 x LR44/AG13 button cell batteries to come to life. Batteries are included.


  • How long do the batteries last in my Fingerlings toy?

Fingerlings are designed to last for hours of silly fun. Your interactive pet will respond to touch, noise, and being picked up or shaken, but it also is designed to turn off on its own to conserve energy if it is not being played with. If your pet is not responding, try turning it off and on again. If it still doesn’t respond or is slow to react, it may need new batteries.


  • How do I know when my Fingerlings is out of batteries?

If your Fingerlings pet becomes slow or unresponsive, it may need new batteries. First try switching it off, then on again in case it is simply in energy conservation mode. If that doesn’t work, power OFF and replace all batteries with fresh ones of the same type (4 x LR44/AG13 button cell batteries).


  • What kind of screwdriver do I need to take out the battery compartment on my Fingerlings toy?

You will need a screwdriver with a phillips head to unscrew the screws holding the battery compartment on the back of your Fingerling. The screwdriver is not included with purchase.


  • How do I turn on my Fingerling?

Look for the power switch located on the back of your Fingerlings head, and switch it to the “ON” position.


  • Is there an App for my Fingerling?

Fingerlings respond directly to your touch, noises, and being picked up or shaken. There is no app for Fingerlings.



  • What are the different ways that I can play with my Fingerlings?

There are so many ways to play with your Fingerlings! You will get different reactions when you blow your Fingerlings a kiss, pet and hold your baby animal’s head, cradle or hang your pet upside down, or tap their heads. You can also clap once or twice for a silly response.


  • How come my Fingerling won’t fart when I press on his head?

Fingerling Baby Monkeys are silly creatures and don’t always fart on demand. The best way to try and get him to fart is to hold the two sensors on his head with your fingers or cup and hold a large area of his head with your hand for 2 seconds.


  • My Fingerlings power switch is “on”but he/she is not responding – how do I wake him up?

Your Fingerling will enter sleep mode after 5 minutes of inactivity. Flip the power switch off and on again to bring your monkey back to life. If that doesn’t work, your toy may need new batteries. Power OFF and replace all batteries with fresh ones of the same type (4 x LR44/AG13 button cell batteries).


  • What if my Fingerling doesn’t fit on my finger?

Fingerlings are designed to fit a variety of finger sizes. Try a different finger like your pinky or your thumb for a better fit. Fingerlings also love to grib on other objects like your belt loop, a large marker, a laptop screen, and so much more! They love playing in the Fingerlings Play Sets as well. Wherever you decide to place your Fingerlings, make sure your little pet is safe and holding on tight, since you don’t want them to fall and hurt themselves!
