EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Baby Shark is swimming out of the ocean and onto your finger thanks to the Pinkfong Baby Shark Fingerlings. That's right. Attach this cute little guy to your finger and turn him on to discover all the fun things he can do, include sing "Baby Shark".

Using a Magic Motion Sensor, if you move Baby Shark up and down in a wave pattern, he'll start singing. The faster your movements, the faster the song plays. Slow it down to hear the song played slower. Spinning Baby Shark also affects the speed of the song. The toy's head fin lights up as the music plays and Baby Shark talks. 

Some other things you can do with Baby Shark are touch its mouth to hear a kiss, hang it upside down for silly reactions, tap or pet its head for different responses, and cradle Baby Shark for sleepy reactions. If you press and hold the head sensor for two seconds, you'll hear a silly surprise. (Spoiler: it's an underwater fart.) Baby Shark also has a tail that you can flap back and forth. 
Is It Fun?

It was only a matter of time until Baby Shark became a Fingerling. And now it's here, and it's really cute. Young kids will think it's silly to hear the song played at different tempos, and while the kissing feature is neat and so are some of the other reactions, we think that playing the song is what kids will be doing over and over again. There were some features that we wish worked better (see What to Be Aware of below), but overall, this offers simple interactivity for Baby Shark fans.

Who It’s For

Baby Shark Fingerlings are for ages 5 and up, and is just silly fun for Baby Shark fans.

What To Be Aware Of

The toy did not respond very well to the wave or spinning motions, and the instructions say you can raise or lower the singing pitch when you move the Fingerlings up or down, but that didn't work at all.

This is only available in Baby Shark. 

Four button cell batteries are included.
