The Screaming Flying Monkey – a Firebox stalwart for aeons, and surely a top contender for the most entertaining yet utterly pointless toy in history award.
Simply put two fingers in the little pockets in his paws, pull back his super-elasticated bungee arms and let him go. He'll then fly a good 25ft or more, issuing blood-curdling monkey screeches from a hidden speaker as he soars wondrously through the air.
There's few things in life that you'll fall in love with quite so fast (or want to stamp into tiny monkey pieces) but this is definitely one of them. Seriously addictive, it genuinely doesn't get much more fun than flinging this loud-mouthed aerial ape about the place. But don't just take our word for it; order one now and witness the awesome effect Screaming Flying Monkey has on onlookers, mesmerised animals and unwitting targets alike.
Suitable for ages 12 and up
Fling this screeching simian and feel ALIVE
Definitely the most pointless yet entertaining toy ever made
Can fly a good 25ft or more, depending on your forearm muscles and his ever-changing mood
It makes people happy. For that reason the monkey is as important as cherryade, fart jokes and even Jesus. For less than a fiver how can you go wrong? Dave, Solihull - 6th April 2013

Bought this for a Secret Santa. Everyone loved it, except the guy I bought it for. Annoying but really fun! Tom, Essex - 20th December 2012
Funniest thing I have seen for a while - I love it and can't stop laughing! Just a great present for ANY age ! Icing on the cake is that it annoys the hell out of my husband ! Sue Brownlie, In A House In Scotland ! - 5th December 2012
Firebox says: Glad to hear you love it!
If you pull the strings too long will it snap? Oliver, Sheffield - 20th November 2012
Firebox says: Well the monkey is pretty strong, but if you pull too hard for too long it will eventually snap.
Ordered two of these on the 15th arrived today. . They are gifts for my parents and I couldn't help but have a go with them they are fab! Can't wait to see what the parents think :). Kate, England - 17th July 2012
The worst invention ever! Brilliant fun but when you have 7 year old twin brothers firing it at each other non stop it could not be worse! Love it and it keeps them busy and out of the way but the constant sound makes me want to rip my ears off.... Charlotte, Cambridge - 14th July 2012
