Ready, aim, howl! Howler monkeys are the loudest animals on earth, except for blue whales. This masked, cloaked monkey is not, technically, a howler monkey, but it is probably the loudest toy monkey on earth. Slip your fingertips into its little mitts, pull back like a slingshot, let fly, and join in the laughter when the furry projectile screeches through the air. So much fun we offer a set of three with black, blue, and red capes. For ages 5 and up. Size 11-1/2" long

These are some of the BEST toys you will ever give, get or play with. Open the box and watch the fun and the monkeys fly. Everyone in the room wants to play with screaming flying monkeys. Dads are especially intrigued with these furry guys, and if you have a dog or cat in the middle of all this, well, let's just say hilarity ensues. At work, they provide a quick break and bring a few minutes of fun to the day. In a college dorm, they are delightful ways to surprise and amuse. They can fly a good long distance; up to about 40 feet!

The monkeys fly pretty good and the noise is pretty real. Finger holds should be larger. Young kids bend their fingers and the monkey drops to the floor so it will take alot of practice for them to keep fingers straight for the monkey to fly. They get discouraged More for an 8 year old on up. Service was great and fast.

Dear grandma and grandpa,Thank you for the flying monkeys. I like the flying monkeys because they are fun to fly and they make these crazy funny sounds.
Kind of annoying
I bought these for Christmas and didn't realize that they make a LOUD screeching monkey sound.They don't shut off so every time you shoot it it screeches.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Used as stocking stuffers. One out of the three (red caped monkey) did not screech. Child was disappointed.

These monkeys are fun for all ages--even adults! Once you figure out how to fling them, they can really fly!

I purchased this for my four grandchildren -- ages 7 to 11 -- and their parents had as much fun with it as the kids did.

Great fun but tail pulled right off!!
By kid at heart
from Saint Paul, MN
These monkeys are great fun to play with but you should have seen the look of terror on the child's face who pulled the tail off the monkey on his first pull. After reassuring the child that they hadn't hurt the monkey, we continued on by pulling on the legs so all is not lost and the fun continues!!!
A FUN TOY MY GRANDCHILDREN LOVE THEM
from Massapequa, NY
My grandchildren are still playing and enjoying every minute, they are still performing when the children send them off. An excellent enjoyment for all. Thank you

These got everyone giggling!
By Happy Grandma
from Cleveland, Ohio
I bought these for my grandson's birthday party, which I thought might be a bit dull with far more adult family members than kids. These really livened things up. Just about everyone felt compelled to shoot a monkey across the room and the flying, howling monkeys got everyone involved and laughing. The birthday boy's sister asked me later if she could have monkeys for HER birthday party, and an adult guest volunteered that I should win the prize for the best birthday gift!

I bought the Flingshot Monkeys as Easter gifts for my nephew (9) and neices (14 and 17). Every time they flew, the room erupted in laughter. I'm sure I'll be buying more for the adult "kids" in my life.
Fun, Fun, Fun!!

About Me Aunt, Working Parent
I bought these as a Christmas gift for my 5 year-old nephew. He absolutely loves them!! Actually, the whole extended family had fun playing with them on Christmas Eve after the gifts were opened.Some "little fingers" had a bit of difficulty actually using the "fling shot" feature, but they just "tossed" them instead.

What a hoot, what a great noise this monkey makes. We really had a good time driving the ho-hum adults nuts. Hooray for being a crazy aunt. I just wish the finger holder was a little bigger to fit big peoples fingers better.
from Austin TX area
The 4 year olds didn't have the patience to learn to fling the monkeys but the dads had a great time. Maybe in a few years they'll all join in! I thought it was a good value when I received 3 for that price.
Realy Neat Toy!
from Fort Worth, TX
The kids loved them and the adults kept wanting to play with them, also. They are very durable and easy to sail. The howl is great. A very unique toy.

About Me Education Oriented, Grandparent
At first the kids did not see that they have to insert their fingers in the monkeys hand,in order to make it fly.They used these on "ELLEN" and the adults didn't see that either.If used indoors they are soft enough to land lightly on furniture etc.
Huge amounts of fun!
from Oakland CA
Grandkids - boys and girls - ages 5 to 13 had a ball with these guys. Much more fun than the fleece and books that they usually get from Grandma!
Awesome! (&we don't even have any kids!)

Used as stocking stuffers for my twenty-something sons and my husband. More fun than a barrel of non-flingshot monkeys!!
