Furby’s have been around since (can you believe it) 1998, and have come in so many different incarnations since. The Furby Boom is this years (2013) a very brightly coloured egg-shaped creature, with large pointy ears. Both of my daughter are quite different ages, 4 and 11, and yet both had a Furby on their Christmas wish list this year.
It is promised to be completely different and even more fun than it predecessors. It combines physical and digital ways to play with it, I think this will keep children interested for longer. You can interact with your Furby Boom and in turn shape the Furby’s personality. That’s going to be a really interesting thing to watch over time, as both of my daughters will have one so we can compare them the differences. With this new generation of Boom you hatch and raise digital Furby Furblings. The Furby Boom has more than double the speech as the previous Furby, it even remembers the name you give it, and has 5 new personalities to discover, on top of all that, it’s intriguingly hatching a new generation…
I was sent the image above , and our very own Furby to review and nurture. I love that my own family have all been captured as a Furby, and it really did make me chuckle, as they even got my blonde hair in there.
- wee-tah-kah-loo-loo: Tell me a joke.
- wee-tah-kah-wee-loo: Tell me a story.
- wee-tee-kah-wah-tee: Sing me a song.
- u-nye-loo-lay-doo?: Do you want to play?
- u-nye-ay-tay-doo?: Are you hungry?
- u-nye-boh-doo?: How are you?
- u-nye-way-loh-nee-way: Go to sleep now.
- u-nye-noh-lah: Show me a dance.
Similar to previous Furbys, Furby Boom does not have an off switch. So in order to make the Furby fall asleep, you need either pull the tail for 10 seconds. Place Furby on its back for 15 seconds or place Furby in quiet room and do not play with it.
Furby Boom :rrp 59.00 (though, there are some deals out there) you must make sure you have 4 AA batteries ready for Christmas morning, as they are NOT included.
I have been sent the Furby above to review. My opinions are however 100% honest.
