Oh thank you... Those look a bit weird, cute... I don't know if I want one of those too. My mom might get one if she knows they are comming. She bought 2 of 3 in the house... Of the 2012. I don't know who bought the other two. (Likely my mom)

Ya... Those who have a functioning older Furby, maybe check? I tried, one is emo and one I think is ill with breaking when the batteries are inside.

I want plush Furby too. Bigger Furby bag might be nice too. I saw the Aqua bag and own the White/pink... Like a backpack carrier.

I need to get a couple of those Furby bags. I've been carrying mine in an old orange medicine bag that my Diabetic monitor equipment came in. But the Wal Mart I've been frequenting doesn't have the bags. I need to try Toys R Us or another Wal Mart.

I didn't know that there were bags can carry your furby in. I have been too all the big box stores around here in search of the furby color that I want and haven't seen any "accessories" I guess you could say. Where can you get the bags?

They both have been in Walmart. The bags were $10 and the Glasses $7. I think some of the stuff clearanced too, like the chairs. Aqua and Magenta colored. Although I don't believe a Furby can sit comfortly in the chair without being watched. They seem just a tad smaller then they should be. I haven't seen them anywhere else but walmart. TRU might...

Fair warning about the bags... They are like handbags. Atleast they have spots for the ears and holes to see the eyes. I haven't taken any out in the bag because of the reason. I have a bag big enough to take Furby in now though. Vynil bag for girls so if it does rain/snow its protected. Maybe for the guys, a lunch bag might be better in some cases. The bags don't seem like they would shield the Furby if it was to rain/snow... Or get cold for the matter.

I've seen the bags and chairs at Walmart, seem like a waste of money to me, but that's probably because I'm 13 and its pretty hard for me to make money.

I think I'll stick to the bag I have then. If that falls apart I can probably make something to carry them in. The bag I have now is well padded and has vinyl on the inside. My Furby should be safe in that.

You could always wait for stickers or patches. Find some that you like and place them. I thought about doing that but I do have other much older bags I could use.

The Furby bags. The handles aren't very big either. They have headphones or earmuffs (whatever they are) that come with it. I haven't gotten them to stay on a Furby. Just like the glasses, akward fitting.

Oh my gosh. I'm so excited. I just got the aqua blue/green furby. I wanted this one originally but online sites like amazon have been selling it for $80+ dollars, which I think is outrageous. Patience does pay off in the end because I just got one for only $47. YAY! I can't wait to get him.

I'm not really carrying my furby anywhere.... because I don't go out anywhere anyway. Having the bag would be cool but quite pointless. (Plus my country is too intolerant to ever accept someone over the age of 12 playing with any type of a toy...)
Also it's expensive.

Only official accessory for my furby I want to get are black glasses, but I'm not sure if it's worth it to get it off from ebay with outrageous shipping fees...

Whenever I go somewhere I always have a Furby with me. I love taking them places. Of course I don't keep batteries in when I take them. They'd make too much noise. I like having a pet that can go anywhere.

EDIT: I just noticed that Target.com has the Furby Party Rockers at $20. They aren't for sale yet. They have them as coming soon. They're supposed to be out this spring. They don't change personalities like the current Furby. They have only one personality each and there's four different ones. Kind of makes sense that they'd only be $20 each. They don't seem to be as complex as regular Furbys.

That is good to hear. I know some kids might not have gotten a Furby due to the high price. That or they didn't have anything to run the App. I am looking forward to seeing these and what they are like. They remind me of the Shelby though.

Now that you bring it up they kind of remind me of Shelby too. They look like they may be shorter than normal Furbys the way Shelby was. I don't think they'll be able to compare with new Furbys the way Shelby did with old Furbys though. Shelby was every bit as advanced as the original Furby, maybe moreso. They cost the same too. These Party Rockers seem more like Budget Furbys. At $20 I doubt they'll do nearly as much as the current Furbys. But on the plus side at $20 I'll be able to buy more than one at once. I'll be able to snatch up the three I want all in one go. There's four of them, but I only really like three. Though I may pick up the fourth at a later date for completion's sake.

Robo, you should take a picture of your electronic pet collection at some point if you pick them up, I'm curious to all you own.

I never had a Shelby. Didn't know if it was worth getting. Not sure they were as popular. I liked the Furby Baby, though--wonder if the rockers will be as tall as that one if they are indeed shorter than the new Furbys.

Too bad shelbys are so rare now. I want one sooo badly...

And it's really good to hear about the price, no matter what features do they have. I'm deifnitely getting one if they will be ever on allegro.

EDIT: Seems like partyrockers are like more advanced talking buddies. Not sure if it's worth buying then, especially if most of them are hideous...

Anyway, I found a furby for 50$ on Allegro. It's the black magic one. It's really cheap (I swear to god, 2012's cost... 102$ on allegro.)
But... It's from display. Apparently it was used in some store or something to let people try it. Seller says that the bottom is just a little scratched.

Should I go for it? I wanted the black one too, but I told myself that if I ever get to have another 2012 one it would be blue. But the price is tempting... Not sure what will my mom say though.

I just wanted to say that the party rockers are about half the size of a normal furby. Also, since target is selling them for $20 I think I'll pick up the pink one after they come out.

My Furby just started crying and said Kah-me-me-eh-tay. What does that mean?

My current collection isn't all that impressive. Back when the original Furby came out I had a ton of different electronic pets. Furbys, Aibos, Tamagotchis, I-Cybie, Weebots, Scoozie Pets, Digimon, Tekno animals, Robo-Chi pets and plenty more. I sold it all a few years ago. That proved to be a huge mistake. I started to miss them after awhile. I'd buy new electronic pets every so often, but usually ended up giving them away. In 2011 I started collecting robot dogs. I didn't start seriously collecting all kinds of electronic pets again until this year when the new Furby came out. 2012 was a miserable year for me, with the only high point being the Furby rerelease. When I got my first new Furby it rekindled that love for electronic pets and I started collecting again. But I doubt my new collection will ever be as impressive as my old one. I just don't have the money I once had.

Shelbys weren't as popular as the Furbys were. If I remember correctly, by the time Shelby came out original Furbys had already been discontinued. But Shelbys were every bit as good as the original Furbys. They were a lot of fun.

I love to be tickled.

There is a dictionary I pinned in the Furby section if you want to use that.

Great thanks. The crying right before threw me off.
