Product Description

Colour Name:Black

Product Description

Be prepared to be wowed when you meet the new Furby, your new adorable friend that, over time, will develop its own personality based on the way you play with it. Feed it, speak to it, tickle it, play it music and watch as your Furby's unique personality grows and changes. Play nicely with Furby and it may develop a sweet personality, but, pull its tail, shake and turn it upside down and a mischevious side of Furby may appear. Furby will express its emotions to you in a variety of ways, expressive LED eyes are just one of many ways. When you first bring Furby home it will speak Furbish but the more you talk to Furby the more English it will start speaking. Furby can also recognise another Furby, place two side by side and they will interact, including dancing together or having a conversation. For additional interactive Furby fun, owners can download the free Furby App for IPhone, IPad, and IPod touch, available at the App store. Use your Furby app to virtually feed your Furby, access a Furbish to English dictionairy and use the Furbish to English translator. Furby requires 4 x AA batteries. Batteries not included.

Box Contains

1 x Furby
1 x Instructions manual

We received this last week for my daughters 6th birthday and she has taken Furby everywhere she goes. It has been played with so much this week that we have already gone through one set of batteries (it takes 4 AAs) so i would recommend rechargeables. Furby is cute, funny and loud but amazingly not annoying (yet). It sings and dances along to songs and and laughs when you tickle it and its ears go back like a cats when you stroke its head. If you spin it around the eyes rol around and it say "OMG dude" which is funny.

We have downloaded the IPhone app and my kids enjoy feeding Furby an assortment of meals and the translator is actually quite good as it quickly recites what Furby is saying to you.
Whether it has longevity is another thing, a bit like the Nintendo Wii is is facinating to start with but who still plays with their?

Worst feature - Furby has a tendancy to say "Blah Blah Blah" when it doesn't understand which my daughter has instantly picked up on.

Tip: fastest way to turn it off as there is not a switch is to put a blanket over the light sensor (black blob on its face) this makes Furby go to sleep; yes it does snore!

Before going any further I have to admit that I am aged 24 years old. I was never allowed a Furby the first time around and was so excited to see them back on the scene! The price of Furby's on here compared to the shops seems similar I believe I saved around £5 on mine - in my opinion the money spent is well worth it!

I believe this Furby will add great value to any home, especially as a gift this Christmas - adults will enjoy this almost as much as children!

In response to previous comments on here which I hope may clear up some questions for you...

Yes Furby does snore however this only lasts for about a minute (max) and then the Furby goes to sleep and does not awake again until it is picked up and shaken. Other comments on here left me concerned that the Furby would never switch off, however this is not the case although true that there is no 'off' button.

The battery compartment is fiddly and requires you to unscrew two screws, however from a child safety point of view this is fine. Batteries last reaonably well depending on the quality (the first set I put in cost a £1 and lasted only one day!)

When replacing old batteries with new, you have to 'reset' the Furby before closing it back up. This I feel is not made clear in the instructions only with a label pointing to the resent button. It caused me to think that my Furby had actually died but I was glad to realise this was not the case! By resetting this does not delete the current progress of the Furby.

All in all a fantasic product! :D:D

My 7 year old daughter and my 7 year old niece each got one for christmas and each had brand new extra durable duracell batteries installed in them. Each furby died within 5 minutes of each other exactly 48 hours later, whilst the girls were playing with them. At £1 a battery this toy will cost £12 a week to run. The problem is chiefly that it has no off button, so Furby will be awake (and demanding attention) as long as the sun is up and there is any sound in the room. It is light and sound sensitive. Furby is excessively noisy,and I particularly dislike that it farts loudly and burps loudly - what values is this meant to teach our children? It screams and wails when it's unhappy, and has 'evil' moods when the eyes turn evil and your child has to spend ages trying to make it happy again by feeding it and letting it listen to loud music - Furby only likes music REALLY LOUD. The evil eyes are enough to make me not like Furby, as it reminds me off all the horror movies in the eighties where nasty toys come to life. We have two previous versions of Furby, also much loved by my daughter, and I prefer both the previous versions to this one. The only positive thing I have to say is that my daughter loves it.

I resent that they cost $54 or less in America (£33) and £60 here in England. If you have any friends or relatives heading for the states for a holiday, you would be better off getting them to pick one up over there instead of buying it in England. They are exactly the same.

One assumes that when ordering from Amazon UK to an address in the UK, that it's not unreasonable to expect the item (in this case a "talking toy") to operate in English. Nowhere does is state that this model only operates in Italian which is a language my grand-daughter in the UK doesn't speak.
This is not the first time this has happened with Amazon. A previous experience gave a French language toy. That got sent back for an immediate refund - as will this one.

A complete waste of time and money and a disappointment to a little birthday girl.

What probably need to know if your child is craving one of these is, is it actually any good? Well yes, but there are a few things that could be a little better.

Setting Up:

Out of the box the Furby which now has plastic ears and eyes with a liquid crystal display is pretty easy to set up. You have to insert 4 AA batteries into the base of the unit - the Furby comes with a double-sided concise instruction sheet which is about all it needs as its a simple toy. Putting in the batteries is not easy but not impossible for an adult to do with the right sized Phillips screwdriver (not supplied), but care has to be taken as the screw heads aren't, in all honesty the best quality. If your child plays with the toy a lot you are likely to be replacing the batteries fairly often - the first set lasted a little over a day and a half with intensive play. There's no on/off switch, the furby will go to sleep if ignored or placed in the dark, closing its eyelids and making snoring noises. Batteries do last several times longer as play time diminishes, but it's still a bit of a shame the Furby doesn't come with a recharger. Using batteries for a toy requiring movement and sound production just seems a little poor, given the price of the toy.

Quality and design wise the rest of the toy, as in the bits that will be played with is a lot better, the plastic parts are robust and the fur fairly soft to the touch. Because the Furby contains motors to make it move, it's not the most cuddly item, but this doesn't seem to bother my child at all who will frequently cuddle her toy. She's dropped it a fair few times with no ill effect and it seems to have stood up to play well.

Play Value:

The Furby can be interacted with in a number of different ways.
