With more than 40 million pieces sold worldwide in the first three years of its production, the Furby creature quickly became a global phenomenon following its launch in 1998. This Autumn, Hasbro reintroduces the magic of Furby, an evolved, interactive friend with 'a mind of its own' and a personality that is shaped on how it is treated.
Children can feed it, speak to it, tickle it or play music for it – the personality of each Furby is shaped by these experiences. Play nicely with Furby and it may develop a sweet personality; or pull, shake and turn Furby upside down and a mischievous demeanor may evolve. Furby has numerous personality possibilities.
Furby will let kids know how it feels through a series of animations displayed in its expressive LED eyes, and the more kids play with Furby the more it changes. When tickled, hearts may appear in its eyes; feed it a hot pepper and you may see fire in its eyes.
When children first bring Furby home it will speak furbish, and the more Furby interacts with its owner the more English it will start speaking. Each Furby can also recognise another Furby. Place two side by side and they will interact, including dancing together to the same tune or having a conversation.
For additional interactive Furby fun, owners can download the free Furby App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, available on the App Store. Using the Furby app, children can virtually feed their Furby, access a furbish-to-English dictionary, and use the furbish-to-English translator.
At launch, Furby will be available in six vibrant colours; teal, purple, red, white, black and yellow. Four more fun colours will be available by the end of the year.
