furby is one of the most amazing things invented ever
on October 1, 2010
Furby is an amazing interactive toy that gives lots of fun and includes tons of technology in a very limited space, position sensors, motion sensors, light sensors, sound, games, touch and mouth sensors, random responses and a big vocabulary.
I need to add here, after reading the reviews, that the problem with some furbys that have been in a box for a long time is that the gears get stuck because the furby hasn't been used even for decades, people unfortunately don't know this. If your furby doesn't start right away, you need to hit the bottom of the furby several times, till you hear the motor sound, and he starts to move. Sometimes it's so stuck that you need to hit hard some even took 30 minutes, but it's worth the try. This problem has dissapointed many, that don't know what to do, and other problems that could come with furby, like mute furbys, can be easily fixed, for example, replacing the speaker, it's very easy, you need to remove the plastic tie from the bottom, remove some screws and change the speaker. If the furby definately doesn't work, then that would be a factory defect, but most furbys work, with a little help.
