This review is from: Furby (Toy)
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

You DO NOT have to reset the furby when replacing the batteries, if you do reset it, it will revert back to its original boxed state, you will lose everything you have taught it if you reset it. I just wanted to say this in case people do reset it, we have just replaced the batteries in both furbys and we didn't reset them and they stayed in the same state they were before we took the batteries out.

In that case I am confused, as my Furby did not awake when the new batteries were put in and I put in two new sets. It only turned back on after pressing the reset button, infact I read somewhere that you do not lose the settings by doing this?!?

Its really tiny, when you take off the case to the battery compartment it is in one of the corners, you need something thin in order to push it in.
