I'm hopefully going to get one, if I can find one. My heart's settled on the teal one, which is funny because the teal one was my first Furby 2012. It will probably be a while until I can find these in stores, since my area's slow to get Furbies in. Still, I'm going to snatch up the teal Furby Boom the instant I find it.

 

It's interesting that these are more reliant on the app. I do have the Furby app for my four Furbies and the Party Rocker, but haven't really used it because they don't really need the app. I can feed them (except for Twittby the Party Rocker) on my own. But these new Boom ones have a lot more to do with the app. Not just feeding, but also check-ups, showers, and of course hatching eggs. Which is interesting, and something I want to play around with. Besides, those Furby Furblings are adorable with their big ears.

 

It's also good that Furby Booms will remember their names. No matter how many times I talk to Rios, he still doesn't know his name.

I am looking forward to seeing the App. I believe the Furby Boom furby are adult size, not baby size. The babies are in the app... I would think the furby babies would be called Furby Babie like the original and the 2005 ones. There will be two Furby apps running around, I wonder if you can double up between the apps. Have the original app and the furby boom app going between two app using things.

The original app had an update so maybe they'll just update it again after the launch....

 

Er, scratch that, says the app is coming later, so yeah, separate app.

They're close to $80 on Amazon. I'm kind of glad I'm not interested in them if the prices are going to be like that.

They're cheapest at Target with a temporary mark down to $59 with free shipping. Tax not included though, but it's close to $64 for CA residents placing an order.

That's a fairly good price. I'm kind of surprised they came out this early. I wasn't expecting them to come out until September.

The main website said they were to go on sale August 2nd. Now it's removed and I see them listed on store sites, so I am assuming they're out? I don't know, and have no time for any store hopping to find out.
