Furby Boom! Festive Sweater Edition Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

The Furby Boom! is now dressed for the holiday season with the Furby Boom! Festive Sweater Edition. This new Furby is ready for your ugly Christmas sweater party with soft blue, red, and white Fair Isle-patterned fur. Like the original Furby Boom!, the Festive Sweater Edition is also compatible with the free Furby Boom! app. The app works on iOS and Android devices. The app allows kids to keep their Furby Boom! healthy, clean it, feed it, and even take it to the bathroom. Doing all these activities rewards kids with virtual eggs, which kids then hatch to collect Furblings. There are 48 Furblings to collect within the app. With the Furblings, kids can make them food, groom them, decorate their playrooms, and play games together. You can see our full Furby Boom! app review on timetoplaymag.com.

Outside of the app, Furby Boom! Festive Sweater Edition interacts with kids in a variety of ways. Kids can pet, hold, tilt, shake, tickle, or speak to the Furby for different responses in Furbish as well as introduce the Furby to additional Furbies (sold separately) to hear them talk to each other. The more you play with the Furby, the more its personality will develop and the more English it will speak. The Furby Boom! app and www.furby.com provide a Furbish-to-English dictionary for translations.

Is It Fun?

This new Furby is a fun and festive addition to a Furby collection that is great for collectors and Furby fans. Just like the other Furbies, this one has a high level of interactivity that really brings it to life for kids and makes playing with it—whether or not you use the app—so engaging. Its holiday sweater pattern is just so silly and cute, and it makes this toy perfect for gift-giving around the holidays.

Furby Boom Festive Sweater Edition is for ages 6 and up.
