Were you fascinated by the Furby craze? Remember 1998 Furby was selling like crazy? According to Wikipedia 1.8 million sold in 1998, and 14 million in 1999! Insane. This continued with everyone having to have this must-have toy that spoke “Furbish” but could speak much better as time went on.
Last year, 2012 the Furby craze was back. I couldn’t even find a Furby if I wanted to. They were named hot holiday toys at many stores. They were impressive, with their own app so they could adapt a personality.
But this year, Furby is again back, with more content, new personalities and a very impressive app. Hello Furby Boom!
2013 Top Toy Furby Boom
Furby Boom is interactive and fun. Children will be able to take care of their Furby Boom by using the free Furby Boom app available on iOS and Android. We installed the batteries (4-AA not included), hit reset, installed the app and tried to scan our Furby Boom, however we continued to get an error message:
“Where is Furby? Make sure Furby is near enough”
I’m telling you this because you may have this issue as well. Trust me Furby couldn’t have been any closer. We tried on my Android and my husband’s iPhone, error each time. While trying to scan Furby in the app, flip him upside down a few times, roll him around, he should wake up and you can begin to play. Also, make sure the room is quiet without distractions when scanning.
On the app you’ll be able to name your Furby Boom. Meet Noo-Doo our adorable Furby Boom in sweet pink and black stripes. Talk about stylish colors!
On the app, you’ll play mini games such as feeding, grooming, playing and giving him a shower as a clean Furby lays more eggs!
Oh yes eggs, on the app you are going to collect Furby Furbling eggs. There are a total of 48 eggs to collect and hatch. Once all are collected you’ll unlock the golden egg. When you earn an egg, you’ll help it to hatch and give it some love by playing it some music. Furby loves the babies when they hatch, they are so cute. You’ll then be able to name them (make sure you add to your included poster when you hatch and name an egg)! Once collected they’ll go into Furby Boom City.
By playing with your Furby he will develop a personality. The more you play and interact the more his personality evolves. On the app you’ll track his health, hunger and cleanliness. The app will tell you what is low and what should be done. If he’s hungry it’ll be time to hit the pantry for a snack. Zoe finds it outstanding he’ll react to the water temperature when giving him a shower. If it is too cold you’ll know. Oh and he’ll let you know when it is potty time and when he goes he’ll leave you quite the surprise and it isn’t always this pretty.
Up for a game of soccer? How about singing? You can do that to! You’ll also play games with the new furblings that are hatched. I’m telling you, play is endless with Furby Boom.
You’ll collect points otherwise known as Furbucks being able to use these in game play. Will your Furby be hyper? How about jolly? Possibly feisty? You never know!
I’m pretty sure ours is quite sweet right now. He adores his belly and chin being rubbed. He’ll also tell us things such as “can I get a what what, Noo-Doo so over it, me crazy monkey, Noo-Doo no likey, dream Toto and so much more. He laughs, shivers, snores, talks, tells expressions, yawns when sleepy and gets excited. He’ll even tease you. There is just so much he can do.
Furby Boom is going to be hot this year. The communication, entertainment and intelligence he gains is unreal to children and adults. Zoe and Gavyn are both enjoying their time with him. He’s cute, entertaining and learning new things daily.
The only cons I have are the app freezing from time to time and Furby getting lost while playing. When this happens we just go to a quieter room without distractions or move the phone closer or back a bit and it seems to work. Other than that, he rocks!
