I bought this from Wal-Mart here in Maui, and regretted it right away. First, I paid $62 plus tax for it (everything costs more here). I got it home, and went to put the batteries in. The battery compartment was held closed by two small phillips head screws. They were recessed pretty far into the plastic, and they were in pretty tight. I used a small phillips head screwdriver (a thicker one wouldn't have fit into the hole in the plastic). It was just the right size for the screws, and I was being careful to hold it straight and turn "lefty-loosey"... but as I started unscrewing them, the screw heads immediately became stripped. BOTH screws, even though the screwdriver was the perfect size and used in a careful way. I have encountered this before, usually on super cheap items with screws made of soft, cheap metals. In fact, this exact same thing happened on a "drop-down" Halloween spider I bought at Walmart. Couldn't even get the battery compartment open to put the batteries in on that one -- which was an unpleasant surprise for the kids on Halloween when we went to hang it up and it was unusable. On the Furby, I got the batteries IN, but I could tell it would be nearly impossible to ever open the battery compartment again. Doesn't matter if the innards are well made if the screws make it unusable. I didn't pay $62 to have to throw it away later because I can't replace the batteries. Cheap screws strike again! So Furby goes back tomorrow. Sorry again, kids. They cried when I told them it was going back. :-( P.S. Since you can't turn Furby OFF (say, when it's bedtime) unless you unscrew the battery compartment, you have to listen to Furby chatter for a five full minutes before he decides to sleep.

I reviewed the teal Furby and gave it a bad review because I thought that it was broken when Furby suddenly stopped working. I tried to switch out the batteries and that was not the problem. I called customer service, and they said to take out the batteries, and with a small bobby pin to press the little reboot button and then replace the batteries. I did this and Furby worked again perfectly. We always liked how Furby interacted with the ipad and the iphone. It is a great toy when it works. All the kids will love it. Just remember, if it suddenly stops working, reboot him. Now that I know this, I purchased the purple Furby for my daughter and our teal and purple Furbys interact. Fun toy. Hope this helped a little!

Bought our first Furby and it was only 9 days later it stopped working. Its eyes went black, we checked batteries etc...nothing. I had already read online that some had "glitches" so I figured we were unfortunatly ones that had gotten a bad one. The kids and I returned it and went and got another one that day. This "new" furby lasted a whole 17 days.{ Now, both of my children ages 12 and 6, were very careful with furby. They loved that silly toy...} Once again its eyes turned black, (the eyelids did NOT close) checked batteries etc and again nothing. We returned it. The kids are heartbroken because they had so much fun with the toy. Its quite entertaining when its working. Even the grandparents were having a good time playing with him. I would consider getting another when the problems with it have been corrected. If you buy, please be aware some are breaking within only a few days...be sure to keep your receipt!!

I purchased two of these things for my daughters, ages 7 and 4 and within 24hrs had to return one and exchange because it stopped working and now two days later my other daughters has stopped working... These things are already over priced and you would think something so pricey would work for awhile when playing with it with care.. I am very upset about this.

Furby is very fun! Mine wanted to listen to music as soon as the batteries were in, lol. I love that it can dance along to the beat. I also like that you can tell by the LCD eyes what emotion it is feeling. I haven't quite figured out the whole changing personality thing, the furby website says it has nothing to do with color, but my purple one sounds like a valley girl, lol. Anyway, I think Furby makes a great gift, kids will love it, and so will adults (like me) who feel nostalgic for their old furby!

I love her! :) It brings back old memories of the originals from when I was a kid! :) I really like the new ones too, because I feel like they don't wake up every single time you walk by! Mine sleeps pretty regularly and the only time she wakes up is if I pick her up and literally shake her or tip her upside down :) I can have music blaring and she sleeps soundly. They really do have a mind of their own though! Mine was talking normally when I got her and then she did this "changeeee" thing and now she talks like she's "preppy" :) I don't know, it's just weird. But, I love it! Very cool!

My kids love their Furbies. I have a purple and a black Furby. They carry their furby with them everywhere. My son has named his "DR. Awesome." I would recommend this toy for boys and girls. It is fun to feed them with the app on the Iphone. My only gripe is that they are kind of loud.
