When you get the batteries in... Let us know what personality type they have. (And what tone they have)
My Teal Furby has a girlish soft tone. My mom's white has this tomboy-ish diva sounding one.

These things are amazing. Aside from Tamagotchi there hasn't really been any really amazing electronic pets since the first Furby came out. I like the FurReal Friends and Zhu Zhu Pets, but not having had a Furby for many years I forgot how much more complex than most other electronic pets Furbys are. Though I never had one of the last Furbys they had out a few years ago I've heard many people say they weren't nearly as good as the originals. These 2012 Furbys not only match the originals they surpass them.

Does your have the Anime Eyes? Then a pair of little hears in the eyes? I have that one most of the time.
I put a Clef note on my Furby's Ear....

Yeah I meant the 2005 ones. I missed them entirely because I wasn't collecting electronic pets at the time. I wish I'd have had one even if they weren't as good as the original or current Furbs. I think the 2005 versions looked the least like a Gremlin ( or Mogwai as the small furry forms of the Gremlins are called ). After all the actual Gizmo Furby was merely a regular Furb with arms and legs essentially. They didn't have to change much to get a mogwai out of it. That wouldn't have worked for the 2005 Furby. In fact when I first saw the 2005 Furby I figured that it was so radically different in looks from the originals was because they wanted to avoid the Gremlins comparisons that time around. I don't care what Hasbro/Tiger electronics said. The only reason they released a Gizmo Furby was to appease the Gremlins copyright holders. There was no real reason to do so otherwise. Kids wouldn't have known who Gizmo is since the movie came out a good 15 years before Furby. Most kids of that era weren't even born when that movie was popular. Sure they got a few sales from nostalgiac fans of the films but I doubt they got enough to warrant the effort it took to release a whole new Furby with a whole new language and voice. That's why I'm so surprised the new Furbys look so much like the original. I'm already seeing the new Furbs being compared to Gremlins again in articles online. Maybe Hasbro and Warner Brothers came to some sort of agreement or maybe the new tail's enough to make a difference. I don't know.
The fact that they change personalities like that reminds me of another electronic pet I had, Dog.com. It was a robot dog and it was pretty cool in theory. The problem was that you had to charge it for about six hours to get two hours use out of it. Despite my paying $150 for him Dog.com didn't see much action.

Some of the 2005 are on Ebay, but I wouldn't buy a used one though. You have a better chance of them breaking if they had been used already. Some are as much as the current Furby though. I didn't know they had baby versions of the 2005 though. Not until recently...
Makes me wonder what they are going to do with the Baby Furby this time around. I never bought a baby version, although I do plan to eventually. I would hope more for the current versions.

I'm wondering when we'll see baby Furbys too. I had the original Furby babies but I could never get used to them calling me daddy the way they did. I also wonder if they'll release a new Shelby. Hasbro has a winner here and if they play their cards right this version may be around longer than the previous two versions.

I would really want to get a Shelby this time around. I loved my little toy....

Even so, the price is just too big.
I might buy one on ebay for christmas though...
Is the app only for I-something or does it also have an android equivalent?
Posted 29 September 2012 - 06:57 PM
The App adds to the fun, but it is not required. I have something I can use with the App... But I usually end up just playing with my Furby. I did transfer over a dictionary here so you guys could translate that way. Its also on the Furby website too.

Are the new furbys loud anyway? Like... Can be they heard from upstairs? My mom works at home so I wouldn't want to bother her.
Plus I have 7 cats at home. They would probably freak out if it was loud.
