What is a Fingerling? These come in a variety of baby monkeys, unicorns, and sloths. Each one of the Fingerlings is different colors and patterns. The Fingerlings are easy to put on your finger and have some interactions, giggles with your Fingerlings at your fingertips. 

Each one of the Fingerlings has up to 40+ kinds of animations. They all come with built-in special sensors.  I was able to test the Baby Monkey Summer she responded to touch, motion, sound in many cute different ways: blinking eyes, singing when you clap, shaking their heads, making funny noises, blowing a kiss, and so much more.  

Here is the video I made: 

 

Summer the baby monkey is super silly and funny and is 2-toned in color. There is always fun with the Fingerlings. My favorite thing that Summer does is when she starts snoring that is the funniest thing. My grandson is 10yrs old and he has enjoyed the interactions with Summer.  She hangs out with him in his game room.

RTIC 30oz Tumbler, Orange with a Clemson Sticker on the Mug

RTIC 30oz Tumbler, Orange with a Clemson Sticker on the Mug

I’m one who loves my mugs but this one really is my favorite because of its Clemson football team. I was also sent a Carolina Gamecock sticker for my husband too put it on a mug or his car window. The tumbler is a  30oz. stainless steel with double wall vacuum insulated.  

The thing I like about this mug is when I go to my grandson soccer practices and games I’m able to keep my water cold in the tumbler. I also enjoy my hot cocoa in my tumbler and trust me it keeps it hot.  The awesome part of the tumbler is it will keep your beverage cold for up to 60hrs and your hot beverages it will stay hot for up to 12hrs.

The tumbler came with a splash proof lid that is shaded. The neat thing about this lid is you can use a straw with this lid and when you aren’t drinking your beverage you can close the flip top that also resists spills,  The tumbler is easy to clean.

The sticker was applied to the Tumbler so RTIC didn’t send the Tumbler nor the stickers.  I want to give credit where credit is due RTIC for having some AWESOME tumblers.  Make sure to check out their website they have such an awesome collection.
