It’s a sad fact of life that monkeys can’t fly. Evolution has left them behind, doomed to a life on, or in close proximity to, the ground. We’ve heard their pain and we decided to help.
The solution was simple for the boffins at Paramountzone. Just attaches super-elastic bands to the monkey’s limbs and allow them to be catapulted into the air whenever their owner sees fit.
In mid-flight, the monkey utters a gut-wrenching screech of wonderment as it flies through the air and then when it hammers into its target at full tilt.
Kitted out in a cape and mask (for superhero effect), this cool Flying Monkey provides hours of fun for small and big kids of all ages.
- Flying toy monkey with mask and cape

Now for my tests! Well that caused a few problems, Crunchie decided she wanted to chase it every time I tried to make it fly!
So now it’s a battle of who is fasted & thankfully I won, but not by fair means I will admit!
Poor Crunchie didn’t know what to do when it went flying through the air & started to screech!
Even now every time we say monkey (which we actually call her quite a bit!) she goes running to where I’ve put the Flying Monkey!
So hasten to add I wasn’t able to do a video of it flying!
He’s a little cutie with his mask on, quite mysterious in fact!
Now I’m cack handed so struggled to work out which fingers to use, but eventually I sussed it!
Although saying that I’m just as bad at flinging it & kept releasing the wrong bit & got hit in the face a few times, much to Ian’s amusement! I was never any good with catapults
Once I’d got the hang of it I was fine & could send the Flying Monkey whizzing through the air screaming as he went!
If you looking for a Christmas Stocking filler then this is the ideal gift.
Are you doing Secret Santa? Then take a look at some of the really unusual gift ideas.
I’ve just spotted this fantastic Giant Cup Cake Tin if any of my wonderful family need an idea what to buy me!! HINT HINT!!
I was sent a Flying Monkey by ParamountZone for the purpose of this review but the opinions are my own.
