The blue with horns is actually my favorite. If I do decide to get a couple him and Loveby will probably be the two I go for.

I got my Twittby today! I kept watch on Walmart.com, and snapped up a pre-order for him on Saturday. 
 
I haven't played with him much yet, but I did find out a few answers to questions. Twittby is a very tiny thing. He only comes up to the beak on a regular Furby, and isn't as big around since he doesn't have any range of movement. I think you can pet a Party Rocker. I did it a few times, and he reacted, but maybe that was just a fluke of timing or he reacted to being shaken around. Twittby also reacts by pulling his tail. Mostly, the way to play with a Party Rocker is to shake them or having them talk to a regular Furby.
 
Which Twittby is doing right now. I put him in front of Tennessee--orange with blue features--my most talkative Furby, and they're entering themselves without a lot of input from me. Twittby's teaching Tennessee some new songs and phrases. Twittby will sing a song, then Tennessee will sing the same, and they go back-and-forth.
 
Twittby falls asleep a lot faster than a regular Furby. After only a few seconds, he falls asleep, his eyes turning off. He's very sensitive to wake up. If I get up from my desk (where he's sitting), I have to be careful to not wobble him enough to wake him up.
 
Personally, I like having Twittby in my growing Furby family. He's small enough that I can bring him around with me, and he just adds a little something to the regular Furbys. There's really not a lot to do with a Party Rocker on its own, though, so it's really up to (general) you if you want to spend the money on one.
 
Hopefully, this helps shed some more information on the Party Rockers.

Oh yes. Is Twittby... Talkative? I mean... Does he talk like a run- on sentence, or very fast? Hyper at times? I kinda like his looks but I think Twittby might be a bit too much talk for people if he is. I still might get him later, but if so, he might not have batteries in him.

I ordered LoveBy... Should have her tommorrow or Thursday. I am really getting antzy for her to be here. I love her look...

Aw, you're welcome, Mido!

It depends on how active you keep him. I just shook him really fast for a few seconds, and he's very noisy right now! He shouted "OH BABY!" four times in a row, sang for a while, said "EE-TAY!" twice, one "kah ay ay oo-nye!", and then went to sleep.

 

But if I wake him up and just let him sit without shaking him, he's quieter. A burp, a few laughs, and then right back to sleep.

 

He mostly says "BLAH!" a few times or "OH KAH TEE!" when he's on his own.

 

So Twittby can be talkative, but you have the choice when you want him to be. Which is good, because as I said before, he's really sensitive to being woken up!

 

Have fun with Loveby! She's adorable. If I were to get a second Party Rocker, she would be my choice.

I finally got her from FedEX. Jeeze... I don't think I will be using them again. There is so much negitive on facebook. ANYWHO. They finally decided to drop her off pretty late for them. Glad they did.

I opened her up and she looks good. Is haven't put batteries in yet. Just had neices come and were leaving as I got her. I didn't want them to see her and want to play with her yet. I am just thankful she got here... I plan to play with her soon. I don't think people are ready for epic cuteness.

I bought a new Furby today. A yellow one. Wal Mart only had three left. Two now. They had a place for the Party Rockers but those were all gone too. I also noticed that Furbys were completely sold out at most of the major online retailers. I don't get it. They were fairly easy to find around Christmas time but now they're kind of scarce.

My Walmart had atleast 2-4 each of the Party Rockers. The rest were Black Furby... They were $44 though? I think someone might have pulled a fast one on that. I didn't want to actually scan it since we already have 3. I was tempted though... I noticed our main furby spot, they had those furby and one of each of the Party Rockers. They had another spot where they had the bulk of the Party Rockers.

We had atleast one of each Party Rockers in two other stores. Although Loveby was absent from one of them. Both stores had atleast 3 furby. The multicolored or newer of the 2nd release. So they are out there... But online is still scarce.

My dad keeps buying Furbies on Ebay. We have a handful now, but a few of them don't work, something the sellers never said--they claimed to all work. Our orange one will lock up and get stiff when it leans too far back or too far forward. An auqa/teal one we have (not the blue) was dropped on it's face and the seller never said that, so the head sensor is smashed in and it won't communicate with other Furbies or anything, plus it has a hard time sitting up, so something inside probably broke loose, too. Another one we got, a blue one, has gouges by it's eyes and stained ears, yet the seller sold it as being brand new and flawless.

 

Really angers me when they break them and try to pass them off as being new or whatever. I ended up getting a black one my dad got and it's perfect. But it seems every other one we get has problems.

Oh my tee. XD
My Loveby is like mind control on 3 furby. Hahaha. They are all interacting with her. Expecially when she starts saying this one phrase. Must be a test phrase. Halarious. They all love her already.... Singing together. I hope they get better at singing in sync. Lol!

No it wasn't someone pulling a fast one. I only had to pay $44 for the Furby I bought yesterday so they must have dropped the price at all Wal Marts. I wonder if that's going to be permanent or if it's just a sale thing. Also I read somewhere yesterday that a next generation Furby is being planned for the Fall. It's supposed to be called Furby Boom or something like that. I'm not sure if it's true but I hope it is.

$44 is a steal then. I doubt I will get a 4th Furby unless its different or a color-tone I like. Humm cool.

My cat doesn't approve of Loveby. Hahaha. Shes afraid of this cutie... Made me think. This cutie is the one people should fear. She had all my Furby going "Gaa-Gaa" over her. If all of the Furby are talking it does screw with the App a bit. They all need to be "quiet" thats hard with 3 Furby and a half pint running the show. Had to move Loveby away from the App/microphone.

I want another but I am not sure which. I think someone would have a cow with two Party Rockers going off here. Maybe I will talk my mom into one since she likes the Furby too.

I think I've decided against getting a Party Rocker. If what I read is true and they are introducing a new model Furby in the fall then I want to concentrate on getting as many of the different colors of the current Furby as I can before the new models come out and the current models are inevitably discontinued.

I almost think these guys unlock more to the regular Furby. They must send extra data to the Furby playing with the Party Rocker. I wonder what it would do with the others or multiples... I think one might be nice to spice up the lingo. Loveby got all of my Furby singing new song(s?) although, the Party Rocker needs to be on.

They very well might. They might work like the app in sending different signals that invoke different responses in regular Furbys.

They have that soft buzzy sound. I think I heard it off both. I tried mine without the App first. Interesting little "Love Bug" to me.

So what's Loveby's personality like? When I was contemplating getting a Party Rocker it and Scoffby were the two I was thinking about getting. I read somewhere that Loveby gets upset if treated wrong. Is that true?
