The new Furby's have been upgraded
It utilizes Emoto-tronics which essentially brings the Furby to life by allowing it more realistic emotions and movements. The Furby has improved voice recognition as well, unlike the original which was more sound activated, these should be able to understand what you say and reply back. I'm sure there's a bit of an adjustment since it will probably need to learn the influxes in your voice. The price is a bit higher than the original but it should prove be be a far more entertaining experience. More colors are starting to pop up too.
