14 years have passed since the original FURBY was released and now, next month, kids will be wowed once again by the adorable creature with the distinct personality. With the latest technology, Hasbro has created a new FURBY for today’s generation that is growing up with smartphones and tablets. Kids now have the ability to communicate or virtually feed their adorable friend by simply downloading the free FURBY App.

Like the original FURBY, the updated version also has a mind of its own.  FURBY’s personality grows thru experiences and interactions during play. The potential personalities are endless and unpredictable. FURBY lets kids know how it feels through a series of animations displayed in its LED eyes. At first when children start playing with FURBY, it will speak FURBISH, however the more interaction with its owner, the more English it will start speaking. Children can also access the Furbish-to- English dictionary on the free app so they can more easily communicate with their furry new friend.

FURBY also loves to interact with his other friends too. Place two FURBYs side by side and watch them have a conversation, dance or sing.

The new FURBY will be available in six vibrant colors and will retail for around $60. Make sure you get your hands on what I’m sure will be on the top of most kid’s wish list this holiday season.
