Hasbro's coming out with physical versions of the Furblings from the Furby Boom app. Not much is known about them yet but they look like they may function similar to Furby Party Rockers.

Huh. Looks like the eyes might change maybe? But the mouth looks stationary.

It'd be nice if there was some movement. Either animated eyes or beak. I kind of doubt it though. I've kind of warmed up to the Party Rockers lately so even if the Furblings are just like them I'll still probably pick up a couple.

*cocks head* give meeee.... Got a date for these Robo? Nevermind, March 3 2014.

The eyes could be like those googly eyes that you put on art. I want ear twitching, I will bee 120% satisfied.

Omg I must have one!! They are so adorable I wanted furby boom but I already had the first revamped furby so I didn't want to fall back into what I did when I first liked furby ( I kinda ended up with about 5-10 furbys )

Hm. I only have the 1998 Furby. This is me hugging him. ^o^
These look cute! But considering the fact that I always spend my spare money on Tamagotchis / odd pets I will never afford buying one. :P

Taking a closer look at the packaging on that site it seems these run on 3 watch batteries rather than AAA like the Party Rockers. It makes me wonder if these will do even less than Party Rockers. I can't think of any electronic pet that ran on watch batteries that actually had any movement. I'd be happy with just the same basic functionality as the Party Rockers But I'm wondering if we'll even get that. In the end it doesn't really matter. As long as they have electronics I'll buy them. They're certainly more appealing than some of the Party Rocker designs.

They are very cute!

Maybe just furbys will react to them like that one toy where it layed an egg and the mom and the hatchling interacted with each other? (forgot the name)

The penguin? Ya. Penbo?

I really like these, if it wasn't obvious.

I don't see why it would need three watch batteries if all it did was make sounds. Tama Connections make sounds and have to power a screen besides and they only use one. Plus $17 is a bit much for something that just makes sounds. Even the Party Rockers do more than that and they were around the same price. A Furbling would at least need a sound sensor and a tail sensor to be worth the price. Finally the description on the site talks about taking care of them as if that's part of the functionality. I've tried to find more info but there's literally nothing about them online besides the page I already posted.

*heavy breathing* I really want one of these. My mom wouldn't let me get a boom though and I doubt she will let me get one of these. I still want to get the pink/yellow party rocker that reminded me of fluttershy, but oh well. I'll see if I can get one of here when they come out.

Loveby does not have fluttershy personality. Look, yes, personality no. Party Rockers are very talkative and they have a rolling ball inside that chooses what they say when they roll over sensors.

These are going to be cheaper then the Furby. Like $20. I think these might be the actual babies. People thought the rockers were and they aren't.

I don't think they'll really be the equivalent of what the 90's Babies were to the 90s adults. The 90s Furby Babies retained nearly all the features of adult Furbys with the exception of the moving base. These Furblings look to be Party Rockers Version 2 at best and the choice of watch batteries instead of Triple A's leads me to believe there won't be much to them since they don't even require the level of power that Party Rockers do.

Interesting. Looking forward to learning more about these new things. I know I'm going to get one, and it'll probably be the zigzag one. That was the other Boom that I liked the design of, but I went with a different design to fit in with my group.

Wonder if there is going to be a limited edition ugly sweater colored one too?

I doubt there will be a sweater version. That's a Christmas edition and the Furblings will be released several months after Christmas is over. It doesn't make much sense to release a Christmas edition in March.

Maybe a March/St Patricks day. There is an Easter Boom edition coming for regular Booms. I didn't think I liked the ugly sweater version but I do... Maybe they'll have a baby boom/furbling that is the sweater in July. Lol.

The description in the link says they interact with Furby Boom so you need to have one of them to access full functionality. I don't know if they talk without a  Furby Boom though.
