I overheard a couple talking about the must have toy of the year. What exactly are Fingerlings? I just figured that they were some sort of video game based character or perhaps an app for your phone? Turns out that they are actually interactive toys that kids play with on their fingers!

According to Business Insider:

Fingerlings are one of the hottest must-have toys for the holiday. The small interactive baby monkeys are small enough to wear on your finger and respond to touch, sound, and motion with over 40 different sounds and features.

If you are looking for a better explanation like I was, here is a video that shows what they look like and how kids are using them.
