LOVELY TOY - PACKAGING AND INSTRUCTIONS NOT IN ENGLISH! (not as pictured)
on 6 January 2017
Lovely toy soft fur, durable plastic (actual toy looks EXACTLY like the pictures shown) - sweet characters - no problems with use, does what it is supposed to do and changes characters frequently (particularly loves to be in the car with music on).
HOWEVER - what this seller doesn't tell you is that the box packaging and instructions are NOT in English as pictured but this Furby comes from the Netherlands with packaging to match. None of the instructions were in English and this was frustrating on Christmas day - also we were very nervous that Furby would not speak English and couldn't test it beforehand, good news though - regardless of packaging, Furby speaks Furbish and English so it didn't take long to get the hang of things. Managed to download an instruction booklet online which has helped.
Works very well independently of the App so no need to use the App at all if you don't want to (which is why I picked this instead of the newer Furby Connect or Furby Boom). First lot of batteries lasted 1 week with almost continuous use - we were pretty happy with that. Second set of batteries is already lasting longer.
