When Furby first burst onto the world's toy scene many years ago he was a revelation. Combining the technological gadgety interactivity of a Tamogathi digital pet and the cute, cuddiliness of a good old fashioned teddy bear, he quickly became one of the must have toys for Christmas and beyond.
As with any good idea, the concept of Furby was worth revisiting and now he's back, better than ever and ready to delight a whole new generation of kids (and their parents too no doubt)!
Since he last brought wonder to our lives, Furby has gotten himself a serious upgrade. Nowadays, he comes fully equipped with the Furby Connect App. But what does it do? Furby's antenna will light up and glow when he has discovered something interesting on the app that he wants to share with you. Once you acknowledge him via the app, he can then directly beam his discoveries to your smartphone or tablet for you to see. These discoveries usually include pictures, music and videos - you can even raise a brood of little Furblings via the app! Since he's online, he can now upgrade himself, teaching himself new phrases and behaviours, so he always has something fresh and new to do!
While Furbies don't speak fluent English, they do speak their own language, Furbish. Despite the language gap, they never seem to have much of a problem communicating with their human friends. Furby's eyes are more expressive than ever now, and can display over 150 different emotions right out of the box, so it's easy to tell what it is that he wants.
While Furby loves to chat and play, he does know when to stop and loves a nice bit of beauty sleep. That's why the new Furby Connect comes equipped with a special sleep mask. When you get tired of the little guy's antics, simply put the sleep mask on his head and he will settle down for the night.
You don't need to worry about upsetting your furry little friend. He knows that rest is super important and will be ready for action, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, when you remove his sleeping mask and get him ready for another day filled with all sorts of fun and excitement!
