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?

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.Read more ›
After searching the internet, I found the fix for this issue. You just have to push the "refresh" button in the battery compartment for 2 seconds. There's a picture in the instruction manual that shows where the button is (it's kind of hidden). Don't worry, this doesn't reset the personality, it stays the same. I'm changing my star rating from 1* to 3* because I still don't like that I'm going to have to remove the battery cover (2 screws that are a pain to get to) and push a button every several days.
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.Read more ›
