2023 Holiday Sneak Peeks with Elizabeth Werner - November 6, 2023
Furby Interactive Toy

Furby may have evolved over the years, but one thing has remained constant since the very first launch... Furby is and will always be a best friend that encourages kids to be their freest most authentic selves!

Furby's glow up will have you noticing that Furby has a little bit of a new shape, a new fur hawk, and the eyes have reverted back to the mechanical actions of the original.

This next generation of Furby comes in two colors (purple and coral), features 5 voice activated modes, and over 600 reactions to discover, including lights, sounds, and 10 unique songs.

Furby is Back! Generations of kids have loved this adorably fuzzy, chatty, and curious little creature, and now today's kids can discover the all-new Furby! This curious little creature and kindred spirit is here to remind them that they can be their hilarious, wacky, odd, perfectly imperfect selves. Because that is what makes them-and the world-a little more special. Furby is an incredibly interactive toy friend that's available in two colors - Purple or Coral - and features 5 voice activated modes and over 600 phrases, jokes, songs, and so much more to discover. Tell Furby what you want to do with these 5 commands: Dance Party, Copy Cat, Tell My Fortune, Let's Chill, and Lightshow. Furby also responds to hugs, pats on the head, shaking, and feeding its pretend pizza charm (or your finger - yum). The more they play, the more fun they can unlock! Care for Furby by feeding them and combing their hair. Dress them up with the clip-on beads and make fashion accessories that kids can wear, too.
