Furby Toys

The new Furby toys just introduced by Hasbro have lots of techie improvements for electronics savvy kids. Hasbro has pulled out all the stops when creating the newest Furbies, they're more interactive and advanced, and have the most features of any electronic pet toy on the market. And they've got the Furby name and track record from previous versions that will ensure that every parent, aunt or uncle, grandparent, babysitter, and next door neighbor will be on a Furby quest while Christmas shopping. Basically if you're buying for kids between the ages of 6 and 10 this year, you're going to want one of these.

The new Furbies are still adorable and cuddly but now they are going to appeal to a wider range of kids because they are also downright cool. Furbies will likely be hot with older kids too because they will have the retro appeal of their favorite toy as a youngster. I wouldn't be surprised if you hear Furbish spoken in college dorms this year. I've compiled a list of some of the features and improvements below so you can make the right choice regarding which Furby to buy, where to buy it, and how much to spend.

 

New Furby Features - About Furby's Eyes - Beak - Personality - Sensors

Teal Furby

Furby Eyes Are Now LED

  • The new Furby has light up LED screen eyes with images that change according to your Furby pet's mood - happy, sad, angry and more.
  • Furbies LED eyes show different moving images and graphics on the eye screens. Rainbows is an example.
  • Those bright light up eyes make Furby easy to find in the dark.
  • His eyelids open when he wakes up and close when he sleeps.

Furbee's Beak / Mouth Is A Bright Yellow Color

  • If you put something in Furby's mouth and press down on his tongue, he nibbles & makes a munching sound.
  • Furbie's mouth moves when it speaks.
  • You can get free smartphone apps that will tell what to feed the Furby and if he likes the food.

Purple Furbee

Furby Has Multiple Personalities

  • They all are the same right out of the box but the personality develops over time depending on how you treat and care for it - for example if you are rough it (pull it's tail, jostle it around) will talk in a deeper voice & faster and may act angry.
  • Your Furby will learn to talk faster if you interact with it a lot.
  • Put 2 Furbies together and watch them interact for more Furby fun. They can tell if there's another Furby nearby. They will talk to one another and sing. Or they may even argue. Don't automatically expect them to get along.

Other Sensors Make Furby More Fun

  • The tilt sensor can tell when Furby if he's tipping sideways or turning upside down.
  • Furby will dance to music and will wiggle when it's tickled.
  • Furby is also touch sensitive - he can tell if you are playing rough.

Yellow Furby

 

Furby Colors - Fur Styles - Names

  • Purple Furby - This Furby is named Voodoo and has two tone straight fur with purple feet & ears.
  • Teal Furby's name is Taboo and has curly fur like a poodle.
  • Black Furby goes by the name Black Magic - more curly poodle fur.
  • Orange Furby's name is Phoenix and it also has curly hair.
  • White Furby is called Yeti - this is my favorite because she coordinates nicely with white ipads. She's got hair that's a bit longer and fluffier.
  • Yellow Furby is named Sprite and also has that cute curly do.
  • Pink Puff Furby has pink highlights in her hair.
  • Twilight Navy Blue Furbee - navy blue has a calming effect for me.

About the Author ()

I'm a Floridian by birth, a Certified Public Accountant by profession, and a toy lover by choice. I've been playing with toys for 55+ years now. I didn't have many toys of my own as a child but after having 4 kids, 3 step-kids, and 4 grand-kids I've seen and played with a lot of toys. I'm still playing with them every time I get a chance. I've started a doll collection and plan to incorporate a lot of doll information and reviews here, but you will find information on toys of all kinds and for all age groups. That includes adult collectors. I hope you enjoy your visit to Trying Out Toys.
