Sea monkeys are brine shrimp. That's it.

I never had one but I do remember the advertisements for them. As I recall, Sea Monkeys looked just like regular monkeys but had a fin thing at the end of their tail. Sea Monkeys are a social species and Mother, Father and children would live together.

I do recall they didn't have fur or even much in the way of scales so I found their appearance to be offensive. Some say manatees are sea monkeys but they don't really look like monkeys unlike this image of a real sea monkey...

This is SO FUNNY!

We've had lots of sea monkeys, just because it's fun to see them hatch, but they're brine shrimp. That's it. They don't live in single family units, they don't look like monkeys, they don't play with toys although you can buy toys from the company for them.

It's just . . . funny.

Triops are the same idea, but they grow into much bigger critters. You can usually buy the packets in Hobby Lobby around Christmas.

Not surpised that that the immensely profitable Sea-Monkey empire was headquartered on 5th Ave.

You guys have to see this video about Harold Braunhut, the inventor of Sea Monkeys. (He also invented other gems like X-Ray Spex, and the Invisible Goldfish, LOL.)

The video manages to be interesting and amusing, yet also quite disturbing. I happened to come across this a while back, and the thread reminded me of it.

LOL These brings back memories used to be in the back pages of Mad or Cracked Magazines with the X-Rays specs I think they used to sell them at Toys R Us back in the 80's and 90's as well.

Remember Fuzzy Wuzzy? It was soap that grew hair.

Except mine didn't. It was a poodle soap, we did everything according to the instructions, and it never grew hair. There were bolded instructions do not get wet, and at the time we lived in Florida, so the humidity level was probably too high, but still.

It was this one:
