Furby!

July 20, 2012

Hasbro has decided to re-release Furby. You know Furby, the hamster/owl robot electronic toy that spoke gibberish in the late 90’s.

“Kah ay-ay oo-nye” = Me see you! ;

Walmart

Furby is a good idea in concept. I remember how excited I was to receive a Furby. Then it started waking me up in the middle of the night with an ominous “Furby like you!”

I couldn’t turn Furby off. Couldn’t turn down the volume. Furby knew when I entered the room. Furby knew when I left. Furby was not a toy. Furby was watching me.

And. Now. Furby. Is. Back.

The toy that every kid in the 90’s wanted and later regretted. It is back in all its talking, watching, eating, annoying glory.

From the Walmart website:

“With a mind of its own, your new Hasbro FURBY will develop its personality based on how you play with it. It will dance to your favorite songs. Put it in a room with a few of its friends and they’ll interact with each other in all sorts of hilarious ways while speaking either English or the special FURBY language, FURBISH.”

Oh no.

The Purple 2012 Furby is kind of cute. But there’s no “OFF” switch.

Why is there no “OFF” switch.

    Raezyn,

    Furby is creepy. I could not stand the fact that the thing won’t stop talking. I guess they convinced the government to lift the ban. Great blog:)

      I think they still might be banned… They should be, why would you want to take those things to work with you anyway?

    Haha those were horrifying. I remember I got one when I was just a kid in elementary school. Like you said it was cool at first but it just wouldn’t stop. Even after we had removed the batteries, it just…wouldn’t…die. Great post! And thanks for the follow 🙂

      Yeah, I can’t believe Hasbro is bringing them back! Thanks for visiting!
