So a while back I made a topic about furbies, and how I found them so terrifying. But I've recently discoverd... they're not so bad!
A few weeks ago my dad took us to a flea market and my sister found a white 2012 furby, just like the one she had for a short period of time. She decided to buy it (it was only 3$, how could she not?), even after I tried so hard to convince her not to. We got home, cleaned it up, and put new batteries in it, all while I was cowering in the corner. When the furby woke up, I looked over at it and realized that I WASN'T scared! I was amazed, something that for my whole life, I found so absolutely horrifying, didn't scare me! I somehow LIKED it, and it made me wonder why I was even scared of them in the first place. After that, my sister and I messed around with it for the rest of the evening, seeing if we could get all the different types of personalities. It was so cute!
I know it doesn't seem all that amazing that I'm not scared of furbies anymore (and kinda stupid that I was even scared of them in the first place), but to me, it's a pretty big accomplishment. As I said, I've been scared of furbies pretty much my entire life, and they were my worst fear too, so getting over that is big. I actually really enjoy furbies now, and I'm glad I do. I'm actually considering getting a 2005 furby. Although I like them now, one thing will stay the same... furless furbies are still creepy as heck!
So I picked up a Furby for cheap at a garage sale today and I was wondering if anyone knows exactly which model it is. It looks like this (the eyes are LCD screens):
It didn't come with any instructions so I'd like to track those down once I figure out which model it is. I used to have the old mid-2000s Furbies when I was younger but this is my first of the newer models. Also I remember the old ones coming with plastic spoons to "feed" them, was that a feature of the new ones as well?

I haven't had a Furby since I was a kid in the 90's. I had the original Furby & original Tamagotchi. My younger brother had a couple of the Furby babies.
I am happy to announce that tomorrow I am picking up my first Furby since the 90's - a Furby connection! I'm extremely excited and get so much joy from all these digital friends/pets/babies.
With Tamagotchi I love both the old & new. With Furbies I felt like the newer version would be better, and I'm excited to try the games on my pad and discover all the new features. It's like I've taken the kid version of me and speed her forward in time.
I have one of those fluffy Furbys from 2005 (the large ones with the silicone mouth). I changed the batteries and it won't wake up! I tried both "try me" and "on" mode and nothing. The battery compartment looks fine and overall there is no wear or tear on the Furby itself. Any suggestions? I am gonna be REALLY sad if I can't fix him.
is the Furby forum the right place to post questions for Shelby? They are a spin off of the original '98 ones.
Anyway, I was curious if the Shelbys have different voice pitches. Furbys have three, one high, one low and another in between. All the videos I watched featuring Shelbys have all had the same voice, but I wanted to double check.
