You're right about the battery compartment. Things like this would be where an off switch would come in handy. I know they wanted it to be like a real pet but for me personally having an off switch doesn't really detract from the lifelike quality. It would just be a way to make things like changing the batteries or taking them out in public easier.

I was just looking at the TRU book again... Um. From last year. *Sweat-Drop* so.... Its out if you want to go hunt Gremlins Wii down. Probably a better thing in your case, cheaper and if you wanted could probably buy it used. (Given you find one) I thought it was from this year. I didn't look close enough at the date. Blah, But that's one in my book to keep my eyes out for.

Regarding the TRU book, it's an easy mistake to make. I'll keep my eye out for the game. You can probably get it dirt cheap if you can find it. With the new Wii U coming out stores will probably be marking down everything related to the original Wii to make room for the Wii U stuff.

I like my Fur Real toys that I do have, but they only do so much. Seeming predictable in most cases. Of the larger ones, they seem to not have battery power for long. When the kids in my family saw the Furby, They instantly wanted one. If you put a equally priced Fur Real (Like the white cat) I figure they would want the Furby since it moves and talks. It changes its personality (and in short program) that makes it more special. Ya, the FurReals are adorable, but Furby I think has them beat this year.

Could you imagine how awesome Furby tech inside a FurReal would be? Atleast that would have a back up off button. Oooh what fun it would be if they interacted FurReal to Furby too.... *drool*

I'm kind of wondering if the new Furbys will become scarce after Black Friday this year. There probably is a very good chance they'll put them on sale on Black Friday. They may be hard to come by once the Christmas shopping season kicks into high gear.

If someone does see a furby at a decent price... I would likely buy from them if they obtained one or an extra. They know I am a sucker for digital pets and robo kitties.

I'm glad Furbys are selling well. I wonder what's next. I half expect them to announce Furby Babies at the next Toy Fair.

I am thinking the babies, if they do them based on holiday sales... By February for Valentines. I can see the advertisment now. "oh look! furby now has a family! (insert dancing and baby act with a adult furby) then two kids go "aww" at the sametime... Then it goes off to "get your Furby baby today" then it shows the furby baby again being cute...
Hahah. I Hope they do have baby and the Shelby. I still cross my fingers at garage sales for them.

As for fun, they dance, change personalities, they sing too. Lots of funny in this new programming. I haven't discovered any " Furby only" games, but I expect some to come in a new App update eventually... Not confirming though.
