Today is the 2nd Day of Karen’s 2013 Holiday Gift Guide and today’s pick is the NEW Furby Boom! Last year the Furby was on the top of a lot of wish lists including my girls. And it was probably their favorite gift they received. We immediately downloaded the app so they could interact with their new friends. They still play with them a lot! I’ll admit, they Furby is a pretty cool toy and since we don’t have pets, they are like pets to our girls.
Well this year there is something new – The New and Improved Furby Boom and it’s going to be on the top of a lot of lists again this year!
Holiday Gift Idea – Boy or Girl
We received the Furby Boom Zig Zag stripes and my little one who loves anything zebra print is going to LOVE this! I know it’s not really zebra print but close enough. So what makes this one different from the original Furby? The all new Furby Boom has A Mind of Its Own and combines physical and digital ways to play! You can interact with your Furby Boom one-on-one to shape its personality. But with the Furby Boom you can hatch and raise digital Furby Furblings. That is the part that my girls are so excited about.
This NEW Furby Boom creature has more than twice as many responses as the previous Furby, it remembers the name you give it, it has 5 new personalities to discover and, on top of all that, it’s hatching a new generation! This should make it even more interactive than the old one was.
If you aren’t at all familiar with the Furby here are some things that it can do:
- The more you talk to your Furby and interact with it, the more English it speaks
- The way you treat your Furby shapes its personality!
- Pet it, tickle its tummy and pull its tail
- Pull and hold its tail for 10 seconds to make Furby sleep
- Feed Furby with your finger
- Introduce Furby to others
- Shake and tilt Furby
- Play music for Furby
- Hold your Furby and turn him upside down
- Play games, get eggs and raise virtual Furblings with the free Furby Boom app
- App is optional and works with iPad, iPod touch and iPhone with iOS 5.0 or later
We love interactive toys and the Furby Boom is at the top of my list for best interactive toy. The girls treat them like they are real and I love it because it’s great use of their imagination.
And to make these even more fun they come in all sorts of patterns and designs. You can find the Furby Boom in stores now and it sells for about $64.99 however I’m sure between now and Christmas you will probably find it on sale a lot!
