Time to dust off your Furbish dictionary because Furby is back and ready to take the world by storm! 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? Who will your Furby become? It all depends on how you play with your Furby. When you first meet your Furby, it will speak mostly Furbish. But the more you play with Furby, the more English it will speak. It responds to your touch, your music, and even to other Furby's (each sold separately). But remember: your Furby has a mind of its own! You can also download a free app to help you translate Furbish, as well as virtually feed your Furby and other interactive features. App is optional and works with iPad, iPod touch and iPhone with iOS 4.2 or later.
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. It shifts personality very quickly at first but seems to shift less frequently as time goes on.
So how good is it? Well it's fun! It was fun then and is arguably better now.
Some of the improvements include the new LED eyes which are very expressive and highly visible, new animatronic animations that allow it to stretch scrunch or wobble (the original could tilt back and forth only), an expanded vocabulary of furbish terms (original furbish dictionaries will still work for most basic words as those have not changed), and new interactivity such as dancing to music, and working with the I-phone app.
The materials are also very soft and Furby is surprisingly sturdy unless you're really rough with her. I think she could stand up to most heavy play just remember that electronic toys DO NO LIKE WATER. Water = dead Furby.
I would recommend for most ages as it would be very useful as a "pet" for kids, or to help develop skills in young children for translating from other languages. Also makes a good desk toy for adults as long as you're okay with the level of noise. Makes a good gift for those who grew up with one of the originals, as it has that nice level of nostalgia about it. :) It's an A+ toy and not too pricey at retail (do some research on price before you buy)
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.
These Furbys are so much more advanced. Just the new LCD eyes alone ensure that. They can express themselves in so many more ways. And you don't have the issue that I've heard from alot of other original Furby owners of the "blank stare" from the static eyes the old ones had.
And speaking of being emotive: these new Furbys have much more movement to them and variation in movement. Forget just the back and forth and moving their ears and eyes. These new ones can dance side to side, squish their tummy in (sorry, hard to explain. Think Pilsbury doughboy when you tickle his belly) in addition to closing their eyes and wiggling their ears.
As far as interacting, they definitely seem to react differently depending on the person that interacts with it most. And how you treat it. It seems to have a different personality depending on whether the main owner is male or female. The voice is different too.
As far as how you treat it: if you hug it alot, pet it alot, feed it moderately and don't pull it's tail or flip it upside alot, it develops a very loving personality. If you do all those things alot, expect a very grumpy Furby. Also, a friend found out that if you tickle it alot it changes into a "baby" personality.
I've only had mine for about a month or so and so have only had it change personalities a couple times. If you play it music alot it does develop "favorites". In other words, if you play it the same song alot it develops a "liking" to that song and will sing and dance to it. After a while when you start playing it different songs, it "likes" some and doesn't "like" others. You can tell this because it either sings along and dances or says "Bleh, bad song" or a negative Furbish phrase.
If you liked the old Furbys, you will absolutely fall in love with the new ones. If you're like me and thought the old ones were just too simplistic, but were still intrigued by them, check out the new ones. And don't let anyone tell you that they are for a particular age group. I'm 36 and love it and have many adult friends that got their own after seeing the one they got their kids :)
