Comments about Product: Why in the world did I purchase this... Our friends come over and we play with these silly monkeys - we're having a good time! Guess we never really grown up; we enjoy these critters but terrifies the cats and dogs. They run off when the adults are flinging these around. That said, I would urge people to be careful in flinging these around.
Comments about Product: I gave a set of these to my husband Dec. 2010 because we always joked about siccing our flying monkeys on people who annoyed us at work, so when I saw them I had to get them for him. Well, three years later, the monkeys are still flying! I'm getting another couple of sets because they are on sale, they are adorable and fun, and I've had so many people ask where I got them so now I can share!
Comments about Product: These are not intended for, or promoted, as a dog toy, and I would not suggest it other than under direct supervision. I got one of these several years ago as a white elephant gift. My Rottie mix fell in love with it and it's his favorite fetch toy. When we are done playing fetch we put it up as our other dog has it torn up in no time. It provides hours of entertainment playing inside and outside fetch with our dog. I now buy him a set of 3 every year for Christmas
Comments about Product: Grandsons had a ball with these monkeys. A little difficult to use but they figured it out with minimal trouble. Scared the 2 year old but I am sure he will like it someday. Great find!
Comments about Product: This was a gag gift for my friend's dog who is known as the "flying monkey". Both our dogs loved chasing and playing with these toys, even though they ulitmately will destroy them. We all had a blast playing with them!
Comments about Product: These things don't really fly very much but they make a screaming sound that is very much like a wild monkey -- it is loud and annoying -- but kids seem to have endless fun with it.
if you get some, best to have some ground rules -- like 5 minutes a day in which you can play with them, then they go back in their cage.
Comments about Product: I have given these to friends and family as well as keeping some for myself. They never cease to tickle the whimsy bone and bring smiles and giggles to all ages. Just plain fun! The only warning would be to make sure they aren't used in a room with breakables or else be sure to "aim low"!
I also have bought for myself and others flying pigs, cows, frogs and ducks. The chickens were the only ones that didn't hold up...lost their heads in the excitement.
Comments about Product: I bought two sets of these silly monkeys for grandchildren at Christmas time and they loved them. I had six monkeys flying back and forth in my living room that day. My grown kids shot them at each other as well as my grandkids. It was crazy fun!!
Comments about Product: I bought this for my 46 year old brother as a joke Christmas present, but also thought he'd have fun playing with it with his two young kids, and their cat. We had the silliest time as a family shooting these monkeys at each other that night at mom's house. MUCH laughter ensued!!!
Comments about Product: The flying slingshot monkeys are just very funny. I gave them to my sons (ages 26 and 29) and a nephew (age 18) I first came across them at a picnic after the ordination of a clergyman, of all things! They are perfect mindless entertainment.
Comments about Product: I bought a set of the Flingshot Flying Monkeys as stocking stuffers for my niece and nephews for Christmas (age ranging from 10 - 24, believe it or not). They were meant as a partial-gag gift, but they were total hits. We all got a kick out of them flying around the room making their hysterical laughing sound. I only wish I had one of my own. HA! Seriously, these are great. Kids of all ages who have any sense of playfulness about them will love them.
Comments about Product: I purchased these as a Christmas present for my friend's 5 year old son, who has 2 older sisters. I heard from my friend that everybody loved them. I figured they would. They are the type of family that would enjoy flinging these guys around, and at each other.
Comments about Product: Excellent and lots of fun. Sent a set to my retired mother, she called me and said "Well, what do I do with these?" I told her just leave them out on the table when my older siblings and other friend arrive for Christmas dinner. Later she said. "What incredible fun they had with flying howling monkeys thick in the air. If adults over 30 had this much fun imaging the kids!!!
Comments about Product: I gave these to my adult kids (20s and 30s) in their Christmas stockings, and they were a big hit! Very simply to operate, the screeching noise makes them much more fun, and the worst damage they can do is tip something over or muss your hair. I bought 2 sets of 3 monkeys, so we had monkeys flying everywhere!
Comments about Product: We gave this to our son for Christmas and he played with them all day, but by the end of the day 2 or the monkeys were missing hands due to pulling on the elastic in order to fling them. They were not very durable and probably would not order again. The screams were cute, though, and reminded me of a Tarzan yell.
Comments about Product: I purchased two sets of monkeys, one for each of my niece and nephews (ages 4-8), one for my 58 year old father in law, one for my 3 year old cousin and one for myself (age 33)! My husband and I played with them non-stop until they had to be wrapped and shipped. Great gift for kids and for adults who love the Wizzard of Oz.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
