I never had a Furby when I was a kid, but I always wanted one. I have one from the 90's a friend got me a few months ago, however, and now I've gotten black 2012 one... I like the updates they've done to it. I love the cute singy personality it has one minute, then the tough guy "NO TOUCH!" personality the next if you shake or feed it too much. My one from the 90's even gets a few responses from him, even though I don't think they're actually able to communicate with each other. They just kind of babbled back and forth, with a lot of petting and tickling on the one from the 90's on my part. I've seen a few of the other personalities too but don't want to say too much--I'll let whoever is thinking of buying one find out. :) I definitely recommend this toy for kids. The app is fun too, but my iPhone 4 has trouble communicating with it sometimes. You have to hold it just so, otherwise the devices can't communicate with each other...but it's pretty funny when you feed Furby a sock and it gets disgusted (I swear, I WAS going to give it a hamburger...) Mine is a desk toy/amusement for breaks during work, but I can see Furby entertaining a child for hours. The prices is hefty, but I do feel it's worth it.

We haven't actually used the Furby as its a Christmas gift for my 11 year old. It's his "big" gift this year because things ate so tight financially. I hope he will love it. It arrived in perfect condition. Thank you!

My daughter loves her Furby!! We got him for her for her 5th birthday and she has been having SO much fun with him!! She feeds him (he makes eating noises when u stick your finger or dolly spoon in his mouth), she talks to, & plays music for him (he dances)!! She has kept very busy with 'Fuzz Ball'!! My only complaint is that the virtual feeding app is not yet available for Android phones (only iPhones). My daughter is perfectly entertained feeding him manually but I was kinda bummed. It should be available soon from what I have read. Either way he is terrific!! :)

I got these for Christmas gifts for my 4 grandsons and I think they will have a great time with them. I had to try one out just to see what they would do and oh, what fun!!!!!! They are so much better than the one that their parents had in the past. I am sure they will be the hit of Christmas this year

I do not own a ferbie. But had the oppertunity to look at one. It is pretty cool and an improvement on the older version. But you would expect for the price a rechargable battery and more features such as being multi-lingule. I expected to it at least know ferbish (of course) English ( all the kids are speaking it these days.) French and (because we are in the USA) Spanish. But I think it would be even better if the Ferbie could learn other languages German, Italian, Hindi, Nepali, Latin ... But I guess for that kind of leaning capibility you would have to pay a lot more.

Do not waste your money. It would be overpriced at $25-$30 so I can't believe I paid $60. It is annoying too and there is no off switch. My 5 year old saw the commercials and really wanted it but even he is disappointed.

Furby will be a wonderful addition to our family of my spouse, Beethoven and me. We wore out the last one several years ago. I love how they learn and interact. A bit expensive but had to have it. ;-))
