Players never know when Mr. Buster, the monkey, is going to blow. Pull My Finger is a hilarious new game that combines two things that make everyone laugh – monkeys and toots! The multi-player game where each player takes turns to spin the banana dial, pull the monkey’s finger to watch his bottom inflate. How big will it get? How long can he hold it in? The suspense builds as his bottom grows until he passes gas causing that player to be eliminated. Avoid the farts, and win!
"Since its launch on December 1, Pull My Finger has shown positive performance at retail and is currently trending as the top game on Toysrus.com,” said Richard Barry, Executive Vice President and Global Chief Merchandising Officer, Toys“R”Us Inc. “We are thrilled we were first to market for this hysterical family game. It has the perfect mix of fun and silliness that kids love.”
“Pull My Finger capitalizes on the universally known phrase, 'pull my finger' along with its thunderous and humorous end result,” said Michael Bernstein, SVP Marketing at JAKKS Pacific. “Pull My Finger is a fun lighthearted game that is already doing great at retail. After all, who doesn’t love a cute purple monkey that passes gas.”
Pull My Finger is recommended for kids ages 4 and older, and is available at a retail price of $19.99.
