Furby is back! - First Look
It's bacccck! Want to feel dated? The Furby was last on the market 15 years ago. And as we all know, it was a hit exceeding sales of 40 million. In less than a month, it's back on retail shelves.
Meet the new batch of gremlins, errr ummm Furbies. A little bigger in size and a little more sass, Furby is able to have a number of personalities and can be shaken, pulled and tickled for reaction. And of course, it speaks Furbish while slowly learning English. It can also communicate with other Furbys.
Furby joined me in the Spike TV studios last week and was kicked out twice for non-stop talking. My only suggestion to Hasbro, an off switch.
Furby makes his debut mid-September with a price tag of $60 and an accompanying free app. It will be available in six colors and four AA Batteries are required.
See below new Furby in purple/pink alongside my old Furby. I’m pretty sure both are possessed.
