Time to dust off your FURBISH dictionary because FURBY is back and ready to take the world by storm! And you had better be prepared because FURBY has A MIND OF ITS OWN. Feed it, speak to it, tickle it, play music for it, and shake, tilt or turn your FURBY upside down. But be warned - how you treat your FURBY will shape its personality! Are you ready to handle a FURBY?

How You Treat Your FURBY Will Shape Its Personality

Who will your FURBY become? It all depends on how you play with your FURBY. So when you are feeding, tickling, shaking, tilting or turning it, pulling its tail, speaking to it or playing music for it, keep in mind that your actions will shape its personality. Who your FURBY becomes may surprise you!

FURBY has A MIND OF ITS OWN. You see, FURBY has likes and dislikes just like you. You will discover them as you and FURBY get to know one another. FURBY may not react or behave the way you expect or the way you want, so you may be happy about some of its reactions and not so happy about others!

There is something you should know about FURBY. FURBY can be unpredictable. Be careful how you treat FURBY. Who your FURBY becomes may surprise you. So, are you ready to handle a FURBY?

FURBY responds to other FURBYs (each sold separately). Introduce your FURBY to other FURBYs and see what happens. Again, you never know how your FURBY will react, so it may get along well with some FURBYs and may have a bad attitude with others.

Feeding and FURBISH Fun

When you first meet your FURBY, it will speak FURBISH. But the more you play with FURBY, the more English it will start speaking. Not sure what your FURBY is saying? Do all those ee-tays and noo-loos have you scratching your head? Then check out the complete FURBISH dictionary at www.furby.com or in the free FURBY app to translate FURBISH into English and find out what FURBY is talking about.

Feed your FURBY! Pretend to give FURBY food with your finger. Get the free FURBY app that lets you virtually feed your FURBY: Feed it a hot pepper and you may see fire in its eyes. Try different foods and see how it responds. Because FURBY reacts differently depending on its personality, you may be surprised by what FURBY says and does.

FURBY Has A MIND OF ITS OWN

FURBY is back and it has A MIND OF ITS OWN. Feed it, speak to it, tickle it, play music for it and shake, tilt or turn your FURBY upside down. It even interacts with other FURBYs (sold separately). But be warned - how you treat your FURBY will shape its personality. Who your FURBY becomes may surprise you! For additional interactive fun, you can download an optional free FURBY app that works with iPad, iPod touch and iPhone with iOS 4.2 or later for virtual feeding, accessing the FURBISH-English dictionary and the FURBISH translator. (Not all functions of the app work with older devices.) So, are you ready to handle a FURBY?

I am an owner of one of the original Furbys so I pulled it out (a couple of them actually) to give a good comparison.

A quick crash course in Furby: Furbys are interactive robotic pets with various modes of interaction to which they respond, Furbys are loud and have no off switch (You have been warned!!!) but will go to sleep if you leave them alone for a bit. To wake them simply tilt them. Furbys begin to speak in "furbish" which is their own simplistic language. As time goes on they learn English one word at a time replacing their own furbish vocabulary. These take 4 double-A batteries which are not included and have 9 methods of interaction: Shake Furby, tilt Furby, feed Furby (with your finger or a free I-pod app), pet Furby, tickle Furby, talk to Furby, pull Furbys tail, introduce two furbys to each other, and play music for Furby.

First the original gen furbys had specific differences: stripe mane or poof with tail, pitch of voice, names, eye color, etc. The new gen Furbys come in different colors but there are no real differences between them... that is until playtime starts.

How you play with Furby will change it's complete personality including the tone of it's voice and it's LED eye shape. The personalities have a huge range from a "tough guy" Furby to a "Valley girl" type, and everything in between. The personality is triggered by how you treat them, for example you can overfeed Furby and I've found that when I do so he always changes into the tough guy mode soon after, if I pet my Furby a lot it changes to a sweet and cuddly personality, and so on. Changes are very obvious, it will wiggle, close it's eyes and emit a seizure-inducing series of flashing lights while exclaiming "Me change!". When it opens it's eyes it's a whole new Furby.

I was skeptical of the new release of Furby after the 2005 "reboot" was such a flop, however Hasbro seems to have completely ignored the 2005 version and has basically made a high quality, massive update to the original 1998 version while still keeping the feel of Furby's quirky personality and general appearance. It's just what Furby fans were looking for.

This new edition is slightly larger than the 1998 edition and is chubbier. You can certainly tell that it's a solid robot and not a plushie, but it's not as pronounced as the original and the white and purple versions in particular are downright cuddly. Furby's ears are now made of a bendy rubber material and the feet are made with a vinyl-type fabric that is not as detailed as the original, but both are sturdier. Instead of a mane or fluffy tail Furby sports a two inch long tail that can be gently pulled for various results. The face is streamlined with LED eyes so that you can no longer see the inner mechanism. The beak will give a bit and then bounce back if you try to open it. There is minimal gear noise when Furby is awake.
Furby has sensors on his belly and the back of his head that he reacts to if you press gently and now has an expressive torso joint that moves. He can move from side to side and back and forth, of course, but now he can also use his torso joint to wiggle about. When he sleeps he curls up very cutely and when he's awake it adds a lot of personality and realism to his movements. He still cannot walk, but he is wiggly enough that you should be careful if he is near a ledge of any sort. He might accidentally (and cutely) throw himself off!

The original Furby came with three different possible voice pitches that did not change per unit and one personality.

I got my first Furby for Christmas in 1998. I don't know how my parents did it, but they managed to get their hands on the hottest toy of the season, and I was in 8 year old heaven. I loved that little guy. As a joke this year, my girlfriend bought me one of the new furbies and was surprised to find I was thrilled with it. New furby has a lot in common with its predecessor, but it includes some major updates that make it more of a joy and less of a pain.

While clearly an innovative toy at the time, the original furby had some major issues. It was a novelty for a while, and then it became a pain. The rudimentary mechanics in the toy were almost deafening and drowned out the furby's voice more often than not, and trying to get them to be quiet was an infuriating exercise. They also looked downright creepy with those bulging mechanical eyes, and as much as I loved mine, I would often place it outside my room before I went to sleep.

New furby has solved a lot of these problems. It has received a substantial visual upgrade, and has gone from what appeared to be some kind of cyborg rodent to a rather cuddly little creature. Although you will not mistake furby for a plush, it now has a much softer and more cuddly body, with the mechanics disguised much better. The heavy base at the bottom of the old furby (which allowed it to rock back and forth) has been replaced by a much smaller, rounded base that also gives furby more mobility. It can rock, bob, shake, and dance and the motor is almost silent. It gives furby a much more believable lifelike quality.
