5.0 out of 5 stars Gone down a storm with my 6 and 8 year old., 13 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Furby (Toy)
Got this for my daughters 6th birthday and has been a massive hit. I was surprised that my 8 year old son is fascinated by it too as he'd shown no interest in the advert. I think the learning the language aspect really appeals to him, he is busily making his own furnish dictionary to understand Furby better and has put a Furby of his own at the top of his xmas list. The kids are thrilled when he "learns" a new word and just as you think you've heard all his noises he does something different like whisper to keep their interest.

The app is great for feeding as there are hundreds of different foods to try and they love it when he spits back the lolly stick or snail shell. The translator seems to be a little temperamental, it's great when we get it to work but sometimes no matter how close I am or how quiet it is it just won't calibrate. Not a major issue but irritating.

It's not as annoying as I feared and goes to sleep pretty quickly if you leave it alone. We have been putting him back in his box as his "bedroom" and I can carry it about the house without waking him up which is good.

We put the batteries in 3 days ago and he's been played with loads and still going strong. We've only had 2 personalities so far, my daughter is currently trying to "get the popster one" by singing it at him alot. Not sure if that's how it works but he seems to like it and tells her how great she is so she's happy.

All in all it's been a great wow present, I am under no illusions that in a couple of weeks the novelty will have worn off but I think Furby delivers what he promises and will be a big hit for lots of children on Christmas Day.
