It wouldn't surprise me at all to see Furby Babies announced at Toy Fair early next year. I'd also like to see them use Furby technology to introduce new creatures the way they did with original Furby in creating Gizmo, Shelby, Yoda and ET.

I got my daughter one for her 11th birthday, but I was kind of disappointed with the personalities changing so fast. I was expecting it to evolve it's personality similar to a tamagotchi. My daughter played with it for a few days and now hasn't touched it. I put it into the baby personality since my wife likes it best. My daughter liked the evil personality.

I think my Furby's got a glitch.

Whenever it is on a crazy personality, it randomly "reboots" itself. The backlight on its eyes suddenly turns off and he starts behaving like he just woke up. Anyone experiencing the same issue?

Not on new Furby but I had a similar problem with the ET Furby that came out alongside the original Furby back in 2000. Whenever he would lift his head he would reset himself and go back to his earliest stage before he started speaking english. I had about ten of them and all of them would do that. I hope that isn't going to be a problem with 2012 Furby. Has your Furby started speaking english? If he has and doesn't revert back to speaking nothing but Furbish when he reboots it's probably not the same problem I had with ET.

Well, yes I am using the 2012 Furby, and just as I have mentioned above... the backlight on its LCD eyes would just spontaneously turn off, it blinks its eyelids and then acts like it just woke up. But it only happens whenever it is in a Crazy Furby mode. It happens randomly so I can't tell what specific actions cause it to "reboot".

It still speaks very few English words and more Furbish. I have it for about 2 weeks now.

Yup. My lot have all done the fake sleep at least once. Its possible its letting you know its about to sleep or you aren't very active. Mine starts doing that when I am not playing with it much.

It's different from the part that it says, "me sleepy" and starts to doze off.

This one's very random, even while at the middle of its talking or movement, its eyes just suddenly turns off, does a few snores then it wakes up and yawns, which is interesting because it was already awake.

Ya, I know what you are talking about. Just turning off in the middle of something. Mine do that. I wouldn't be for sure what they would be doing but my guess is the processor inside is having a moment.

Whew, so I wasn't the only one experiencing that quirk. In which personality of your Furby do you encounter this glitch?

Well... I usually have the Anime eyes on mine and my mom's two are usually Divas... I think mine did it once before it changed. (We have had all the personalities though between the 3, but I don't remember if they did it on those personalities)

Have you tried talking back to your Furby in Furbish? I think I have more luck hearing english words when I do that. I'm sure it will take sometime.

At times, I talk Furbish then say the English word.

I got my second Furby today. The white one. Man, is he fluffy. His fur makes him look much fatter than my black Furby. They haven't interacted yet because I don't have any batteries on hand. I kind of ran out of money. I also put a blue one in Layaway so by Christmas I'll have three Furbys.
