Furby returns with a 25th Anniversary makeover

One of the best selling toys of the 80’s and early Noughties makes its return, this time more full of Furbish than ever and over 600 reactions and 10 songs to try tempt a new generation of Furby brands into the fold. This new Furby will react to one of five voice commands too “Dance Party,” “Cop Cat,” “Tell My Fortune,” “Let’s Chill,” and “Lightshow” — each one getting feedback from their fuzzy friend. This new incarnation of Furby also responds to hugs, pats, belly tickles, shaking, and feeding of its pretend pizza charm. Kids can care for Furby by feeding it, combing its furhawk, and dressing it up in clip-on beads and fashion accessories that kids can also stic k on themselves. Key to the play-pattern and the real extension of the longevity of this £70 plaything is that the more kids play with Furby the more reactions they can unlock. Out Mid July it is, as Furby might say, “Dah-no-lah”.
