Earlier in November at Mom Mixer, Bloggers were introduced to one of Hasrbo’s hot holiday products for this season – the Furby Boom ($40 on sale, Amazon). The Furby Boom is an interactive toy for kids ages 6+ and it’s really something.
Your Furby Boom talks to you and interacts with you based on how you treat it. It even develops it’s own personality based on how you treat it! It laughs, chatters and even farts on occasion! The kids just love it.
If you have a tablet of some sort, there’s also a companion Furby Boom app which you can download for free. The Furby Boom works with the app (note to iOS7 iPad users – make sure you accept the Furby Boom app in your Microphone settings). You can feed it, bathe it and even hatch Furby babies with the app!
Also if you have more than one Furby, they talk to one another! If you put them side by side while you are playing with them, they will hear one another and have a conversation. It’s hysterical.
The more you play with them, the more you can understand them too. Out of the box I’d say the have a cute baby talk kind of language all of their own that’s a bit hard to understand but the more talking and playing with them, the more you start to understand what they are saying. My kids were all over this! They have spent hours playing with their Furbys and are having a blast with them.
There are several different Furby patterns you can select from – I love this blue lightning bolt one! There are plenty of girl and boy patterns and right now the Furby is on sale on Amazon so it’s a hot time to buy it! Normally $59.99, you can get the Furby Boom on Amazon on sale for $40 with shipping.
Ps. To turn the Furby Boom off after your child is done playing with him or her, pull the tail and hold it for 10 seconds. You’re welcome.
