My Singing Monsters

MSM Bio:

Reedlings live and breathe music - literally. Somewhere in their evolution they forgot how to breathe through mouths and noses, so they developed flute-like breathing spines. Reedlings sometimes release the odd toot in their sleep.

MSM Composer Bio:

The Reedling uses special hollow spines on its back to create flute-like pitches. Since it never opens its mouth, it must use circular breathing in order to get enough air to play.


The Reedling is as odd looking as it comes.

Its body is in a hunched position similar to a T. rex, or, in the monster world, a T-rox complete with hanging arms. It has a green furred back similar to a hedgehog or a porcupine, floppy ears like a dog and three toes on each foot. On its back are six flute-like appendages that look like the Wild Bagpipe Decoration.  The "reed" of each pipe is near the Reedling's body, but the free end has what looks like a mouthpiece.

When this monster is idle, is stays in tempo by swaying back and forth and occasionally hopping, similar to the Fwog or T-rox.


Audio sample:
Memory Audio ABC

The Reedling Monster's contribution to the island's song is a tune produced by playing the recorder-shaped spines on its back. Strangely enough, the timbre of the instrument is more similar to a pipe organ's than any other wind instrument (the pipe organ does include reeds in some of its pipes, making it an appropriate choice for the Reedling). However, in Tribal Island and Fire Haven, it sounds more of a flute.


The Reedling can be bred using monsters that combine to provide all the elements of Air, Plant and Earth. Possible combinations:

Because Noggin takes much less time to hatch than both Potbelly and Tweedle, and all of the two-element monsters require the same amount of time, the first combination will provide more breeding opportunities in the same time period (on average).

Earning Rate and Maximum Income

Earning rate is in coins per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.

Feeding Monsters

Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute, as well as the maximum coins earned.

Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster (if not using a Unity Tree), the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%. Below are the things liked by Reedling:

Wublin Egg Consumption

While trying to breed other monsters (particularly monsters with a very low chance of breeding), the following Wublins can be used to "dispose of" Reedling eggs immediately instead of putting them into a Nursery and having that Nursery not be available.

Note that bred monster eggs can only be "disposed of" into inactive Wublin statues; active Wublins do not accept monster eggs. Also note that inactive Wublin statues to which you have already disposed the number of Reedling eggs that Wublin accepts, will no longer be available as a "recycle bin" for such eggs.

Name Origin

The  name "Reedling" may reference the reed, a common name of many plants native to waterlogged areas. Some reeds are said to produce sound after being struck with wind. Also, the reed is part of the mouthpiece of a woodwind instrument; the breath across the reed causes it to vibrate, and the vibrations are amplified and modulated by the body of the instrument.

Special Occasions

Main article: Special Occasions


Halloween Reedling

On 14th October 2016, the Reedling starts the dressup of 2016 with a pumpkin mask. It obstructs the monster's face, so the monster's face remains unseen until the end of the season (or you could just look at the image of the Reedling at the very top of the article and see its face there).

In 2017, the costume returned.

Reedling spooktacle 2018

In 2018, Reedling dressed up as an eyeball.


  • The Blabbit and the Reedling are said to share the same ancestor.
  • A Reedling resembles a porcupine with flute-like spines on its back.
  • One of the default names for Reedling, Izit, is a reference to one of the Thumpies in the game Thumpies. Within My Singing Monsters, Izit appears in the decoration Thumpies Totem, Too.
  • When the Krillby (DOF) was first teased, many believed it was Reedling.
  • Reedling is one of the few monsters to have a nose.
  • On Composer Island during Halloween 2017, the Reedling's face and ears appear in front of the pumpkin mask, rather than behind it. This is most likely a bug. A similar thing happened to Thumpies and Mammot at the same time.
  • Reedling can be heard in Cloud Island along with a Pizzicato monster in a video called My Singing Monsters - The Making of My Singing Monsters
