Editor's Review

It’s a blast from the past! Furby is back! There are two styles to choose from, Coral or Purple, and each one includes accessories, five voice-activated play modes, and more than 600 phrases, jokes, songs, and more. 

Playing with Furby is really easy. Just press the heart gem, say “Hey Furby!”, and then give one of five commands. Dance Party unlocks songs, a freeze dance game, and more. In Copy Cat, Furby will repeat what you say with silly voice effects. Find your future with Tell My Fortune. Ask Furby a yes or no question, and then rub Furby’s tummy or give him a shake for the answer. In Let’s Chill, Furby plays peaceful music and guides you through calm exercises and positive sayings. And Light Show makes Furby’s ears light up for 10 minutes. You can activate different color patterns and light effects by tapping Furby’s head or touching its tummy. The more you play with Furby, the more you’ll discover. 

Outside of these play modes, you can also feed Furby your finger or its pizza charm. Use the comb to brush and style Furby’s hair. Shake Furby to change the colors of its ears. And tickle Furby’s tummy. 

Furby comes with 12 clip beads and a string. You can add the beads to the string, along with the pizza charm, to create a necklace for Furby or a friendship bracelet for you. The clip beads can also be used as hair clips for Furby and you. 

For the most part, you’ll be able to understand your Furby. However, sometimes, Furby speaks in Furbish, so the instruction guide includes a Furbish dictionary.

And if you have another Furby, or know someone who does, you can connect them when they are next to each other for even more fun!

Don’t throw away the packaging! There’s a bedroom backdrop for your Furby to inspire even more imaginative play.

There are two ways to turn off your Furby: lay it down so it sleeps or press the heart gem three times. Four AA batteries are required but not included. This toy does not connect to the internet.
