2012 Furby, new and improved for 2012 is not just the soft and cuddly Furby toy of the 1990s. In 2012, Furby is much more interactive but still cute and not as cuddly (since it’s more robotic) but now has large, wide-eyed, expressive, glowing LCD eyes with mechanical eyelids. Simply put: Furby, new and very much improved is fun.
Furby responds to voice and touch, has a mind of its own and can change personalities in the blink of an eye depending on how you treat it. And what an attitude!
With four sensors and a microphone, Furby giggles when you tickle its tummy. It reacts to sounds and voices and responds to commands that are included in the instructions manual. New Furby will also dance and interact with other furbies. Kids will love that; it’s fun to watch.
Speaking Furbish like its predecessor, the new Furby becomes more eloquent the more you talk to it. And the more you talk, the Furby begins to incorporate English into its language, complements of a FREE downloadable App.
For Furby, 2012 is a good year. What toy these days doesn’t come with its own app? Many do. So with the explosion of Apps, Furby benefits because these Apps help with the translation and communicates with the toy through a high frequency audio signal. The App is optional and works with iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone.
This is surely going to be a hot toy this Christmas so put it at the top of your holiday toy list so your kids won’t be disappointed.
Comparing New Furby vs. Original Furby
Furby, new and improved from Hasbro also has a wider range of movements than its earlier counterparts. Where the original Furbies could only rock back and forth, the new Furby can squat, stretch, and wiggle. Furbies have an additional feature that adds to the fun–they interact with one another. When one Furby gets within range of another it will start to chatter up a storm because it recognizes its friend.
The original Furby did not have an off switch, and this had a tendency to drive some people crazy. The new Furby, as cute and interactive as it is, also does not have an off switch and no volume button, but it is quieter than the original version, and it automatically goes to sleep if you leave it alone. Each Furby is powered by 4 AA batteries so if you don’t want to wait for it to go to sleep you can always remove the batteries.
The new Furby needs to be fed, loved and given lots of attention. What a great way to prepare a child for pet care.
Furby 2012, new and much more interactive is at the top of the hot toys list right now so get it as soon as possible. It’s a must-have toy this season; the kids will love it.
