The New Furby Is Here!

The newest Furby is hitting stores everywhere this week. This fall Hasbro is reintroducing the magic of Furby. This new interactive plush friend has become even more interactive with ‘A MIND OF ITS OWN’ and a personality that develops shaped based on how it is treated.

When you feed your new Furby, speak to it, tickle it or play music for it – the personality of each Furby is shaped. When a child plays nicely with this interactive toy and it can develop a sweet personality. But watch out! When you pull, shake, and turn it upside down your it may become a little mischievous! There are several personality possibilities for this new emotional and unpredictable Furby. Its expressive LED eyes will let kids know how it feels through a series of animations displayed in its eyes. Tickle Furby and hearts may appear in its eyes; feed it a hot pepper and you may see fire in Furby’s eyes. From hip hop to pop, pizza or sushi, each Furby reacts differently depending on its personality. The more kids play with their Furby the more it changes.

The new Furby starts out speaking Furbish, just like the original, but the more Furby interacts with its owner the more English it will start speaking. Furby can also recognize another Furby; place two side and they will interact by talking or even dancing with each other.

I’m sure Furby will be on many kids Christmas lists this year! Furby is recommended for children 6 and up, for a retail price of around $59.99. It’s hitting major retailers right now, and can be found online at Amazon here:  Buy Furby
