I'm a puppet with no strings
And a modern lover might wear my namesake with her interstellar apparel
I tell you that I do wanna know
What you would call me no matter your altitude
I'm not the kind that goes up to your knees
Almost everyone has wanted me to be theirs
R U ready to guess?

What am I?

The lines seem to all be references to

Their songs (Do I wanna know, R U Mine, etc)

I'm a puppet with no strings

"I'm a puppet on a string" - R U Mine

And a modern lover might wear my namesake with her interstellar apparel

"Arabella's got some interstellar-gator skin boots", "But she's a modern lover" - Arabella

I tell you that I do wanna know

Do I wanna know

What you would call me no matter your altitude

Why'd you only call me when your high?

I'm not the kind that goes up to your knees

Knee Socks

Almost everyone has wanted me to be theirs

I wanna be yours

R U ready to guess?

R U Mine - I sure hope so!

Answer:

Sock Monkey - type of monkey (like arctic monkeys), wear them with their nightgown, This sock doesn't go to their knees, sock puppets have no strings

  • $\begingroup$ I explicitly stated that I am a toy, also only two of the lines are R U mine but that doesn't matter so much $\endgroup$ – kanoo Nov 9 '18 at 16:51
  • $\begingroup$ @kanoo just noticed that! updated with that piece :) $\endgroup$ – JGibbers Nov 9 '18 at 16:52
  • $\begingroup$ Still no, sorry $\endgroup$ – kanoo Nov 9 '18 at 16:53
  • $\begingroup$ @kanoo Is there anything I'm missing? It fits all the lines and the theme? $\endgroup$ – JGibbers Nov 9 '18 at 16:56
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, there is, I'm not giving away hints so soon after posting the riddle but it seems that you haven't read it so much as noticed what defined each of the lines. I tucked clues inside a couple (but not all) of the lines as to which toy I am referring to. $\endgroup$ – kanoo Nov 9 '18 at 16:58
