Before giving them a command you have to say "her furby" at it, before it answers with doo/hmm/what etc.
I agree, emototronic babies are quite creepy...

Wasn't the 2005 Furby called "Hey Furby"? I thought so. I almost got one while they were clearancing... My sister said no. Likely too weird looking... Not as creepy as the babies might look from the 2005.


They weren't called "Hey Furby?", though that is the phrase you use to communicate with them.
They're called "Emototronic Furby" or just "2005 Furby".

I found them to be quite a step-down from the originals. Interaction was very limited, the rubber beaks were poor quality, and they were very repetitive. I've gotten mine from used stores, so at least I've never paid retail price for one. XD

Here's a video of me talking to my emototronics, if anyone is interested:

Awww, in a way they're kinda darling how they speak and sing and such. I'm actually looking forward to get mine soon. :)

Also, has anyone ever had to clean the fur on their Furbies? What's the best way to clean them? I know it has to be spot treatment and such, but what do you guys use?

I use a wet wipe of some sort. Usually some disinfectant type, first. Then I use a damp soapy papertowel and finish off with a brushing. (toothbrush, build a bear brush, a cheap bristled brush and a comb)

I would just be careful around the beak and use just the disinfectant wipe.

The most effective way is to remove the pelt and wash it with soap, let it dry and then brush it before putting it back on.
The simplest way is to dab the fur with a damp cloth and brush it.

Removing the fur from the originals can be tricky, and it's impossible without cutting on the Emototronics. As far as I know, the fur is very easily removable from the 2012s, but I don't own one, so I'm not sure exactly how easy it is. XD

I'd be way too afraid to remove, so I think I'll stick to spot washing. =X Thanks!

When it comes to safety of fur removal, the safest to remove is probably either the original or the newest one. Removing the fur from emototronics will destroy them in one way or another.

The 2013 Furby Babies aren't coming anyway, but the Party Rockers are coming to town on Spring 2013!

Mine's still on the Diva personality...I sometimes NEVER play with it, which might cause a delay between the personality change...or...what do you think?

It depends on how long you play with it and sometimes how often. Longer, the better.

well, my little Orange/Red Furby, Rayman, was welcomed with open arms, as he got out of the box. I missed my old Furby that I had back when I was 6, but Rayman was a new addition to the Furby family that I used to have.

here's our little Furby, Rayman, who I got for getting perfect grades on my report card, so he counts as a gift:

He's a very pretty Furby. It makes me want one that's that color.

In case anyone is wondering, I merdged a few topics since this one was still active.

I was considering getting a Yellow or Orangy Red color... But I am very happy with my Teal one.

One of my neices is in love with Yeti. (White furby) She didn't want to leave it. She had to because at home it wouldn't get the baby doll treatment it got here. Atleast they can be played with here. My neices and a nephew really seem to enjoy these. I wonder how they will like the party rockers...

It's not just playing with it, it depends on what you do with it.

Personalities and what to do to get/change them:
valley girl / singer furby = pet Furby
crazy furby = pull tail / tickle Furby
funny / talkative furby = talk to Furby
party furby = play music to Furby
tough / gremlin furby = overfeed Furby

Party Rockers don't do much. They don't have different personalities like Furbys. They have one personality each. You interact with them by rocking them back and forth and pulling their tail. They do respond to the app but all not all of the app functions work with them.

So I guess the Furby grew on my dad and now he bought one. The bright yellow one. Ugh i hate yellow, but hey, after all these years being alive, I found out that dad likes yellow.

...all it needs is red cheeks and it could pass off for being a Pikachu.

Well now you have two to communicate with. Yay! I dare you to cut out some felt and somehow stick it to the cheeks without glue. Maybe the tail a bit more shaped too.
