The original Fingerlings were (and are) very cute but probably only appeal to children who like “cute” toys. The recent addition of the Fingerlings Hugs were an instant hit in our house. This year Roared Untamed Raptors hit the stores. They appeal to kids who like toys with a bit of a bite. They are cute but they do not stay that way.
The untamed Raptors are the same size as the Fingerlings monkeys. They are built around the same design but they aren’t cutesy pets. The one I received came with a cage to keep it in. You turn it on using the switch on the back of the Raptor’s head and off you go!
The instructions are simple… The Untamed Raptors have two modes – Tamed and Untamed.To have it in tamed mode you merely gently stroke its head. This will mean your Untamed Raptor will be more friendly. To have it in Untamed Mode (which is far more fun) you have three options: Poke its face three times, Hang it upside down, Shake it vigorously. Any one of those three would put me in untamed mode also. There are also games you can play with it and it responds. If you blow down it’s nose it sneezes, if you clap your hands it might sing you a song, if you stroke it,it responds with a dinosaurs version of a purr.
