Fingerlings HUGS are true softies when it comes to affection, with long arms that are perfect for big snuggles and cozy hugs. Kids can swing these cuddle monkeys for a silly reaction, shake them for a funny fart, or pat their back for a crazy burp! But that's not all...New to Fingerlings HUGS is WowWee's unique and proprietary KissTech™ technology. Just press your HUGS' mouth to your cheek or skin and you'll get a big smooch in return! The longer you hold it, the longer the kiss will last. You'll even get different types of kisses when you hold your HUGS in different ways - right-side up, upside down, or on its back. And, you can talk to your HUGS too! With TalkBack technology, just hold down your HUGS' ear to share a sweet message, and they'll repeat it back in its own silly voice!

"August marks one year since the introduction of Fingerlings, and we're really excited that we have the opportunity to continue to deliver the interactivity of this toy to children in new and different ways," said Sydney Wiseman, creator of Fingerlings and brand manager at WowWee. "The response we've received to Fingerlings has been remarkable, so we took a lot of the technology used in the original fingertip friends and built it up to include additional innovative features like KissTech and TalkBack technology, packaged in a cuddly plush that we know kids will love."

Fingerlings HUGS will be available in Bella (pink) and Boris (blue) at major retailers including Target, Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy and Kohl's for $29.99 each. Ages 2+.
