Changes into unpleasant characters. Disappointing.
on 2 January 2015
This toy was sweet for about 30 mins, then turned into an unpleasant character with a deep male voice that sounded drunk. It was really upsetting for the child who had so looked forward to it.
The instructions don't cover this kind of change, but an internet search shows it is not unusual. The internet search showed how to fix it (eg Mumsnet: manufacturer's website not very helpful). So it went back to its original sweet character, and stayed sweet for about half a day then turned into a screeching, hyperactive character, also unpleasant.
We are returning it to the shop today. It seems from other comments that not all Furbys change so much. But we won't try it again. Quite an unpleasant toy which could be frightening to young children, and was disappointing to an older child.
