I remember when the original Furby was the newest, best toy. I actually won two of them in an online sweepstakes that I had entered, and I gave one to my daughter and sold the other on Ebay. At the time, you couldn't even get a Furby; they were hot, and the stores couldn't keep them in stock!
Things have come a long way since then. I no longer use dial-up to enter sweepstakes, and most talking, interactive toys are everywhere these days. Furby is back, however, and appealing to a new audience! I'm excited to see that he comes in several very bright colors (including teal), and have a special site to help you learn all about him before you buy!
By visiting the special site, you can:
- Learn tips for interacting with Furby
- Download the Furbish dictionary (so you know what your Furby is saying)
- Compare the old Furby to the new one
- Take a personality quiz
- Get Furby wallpaper and downloads
- and more!
Furby will likely be as popular as it was when the original was around, in part to all the social media hype that consumers generate. Will you be buying a Furby? If so, you might want to check it out at Walmart.com; they went on sale TODAY!
