Poorly Made, Problems From the Start

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.

They got it right this time!

Barely got started with this toy and I am very impressed! The movements are awesome and give a sort of feeling that your furby is alive and part of what's going on. The apple app is pretty interesting as well. You slide it a steak and it sends you a bone! I so recommend this to true furby fans. It seems fragile at first but not after you get used to it. It responds to you when you speak to it. No light sensor and it stays awake a bit longer than before. The voice volume is not too loud and it will be a treat for the whole family. It tried to talk to the original furby but they didn't seem to hit it off too well (jealousy maybe)! No eyelashes to mess up, sturdy, loves to dance and good at it! I think every child should have one and I can't wait to see it interact with another of it's generation. Just get it and don't wait because they are sure to be a top pick for Christmas this year!

LOVE IT

I got this white Furby for my daughter yesterday. She is in love with it. I have to say it is one of the best toys ever. It is not like those dumb Fijits at all. I have to admit it was my fault that I had wake up early yesterday to get it for her because I had hyped up the toy so much due to the fact that I had one when I was 14 years old and now at 29, I was so happy to see the Furby make a come back. it did not let us down. she played with it ALL day and took it everywhere with her. By night, it was already speaking some english and the things it says are so funny. She gives it lots of love and by evening it had said "I love you" to her twice but it did take all day for him to say it to her so what it says that you shape its personality, its very true. She named it "Gizmo" like the Gremlins guy but I do not regret spending 54 dollars because she really does enjoy it so much. it makes us laugh all the time. I am thinking of purchasing another one for xmas because she wants it to have a "friend" I thought the eyes weere going to be a big let down but I have to admit, the new eyes are actually pretty cool. The iphone app is also very helpful and very cool. when you feed him a fish, he eats it and sends back just the bones to your phone. its pretty cool. highly recommend.

cute toy

I pre-ordered the red furby for my son for x-mas. I recieved it and opened it while he wasn't around, put batteries in and tried it out! First, theres a review about the screws on the bottom stripping when they went to put the batteries in, I can see how that can happened. The screws are so recessed into the furby, it seems the screws they used are cheap and easily stripped. So be careful there. The furby is very responsive. I barely patted his head and he purred. There is no OFF switch, you just have to not touch the furby for about 5 min and wait for him to stop talking. I think my son will love it. So I took the batteries out and hid him away until X-mas. I hope he doesn't have glitches like the other reviewers have experienced, that would be disappointing at X-mas.

Stopped working, but learned how to reboot

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!

Awesome!

I got my furby yesterday and I love it! It responds to music by dancing as advertised, and the LED eyes are fantastic! Also, the Furby is super soft and light weight. Although there is no off button, it falls asleep quickly after inactivity unlike some of the older models who talked for a long time before they finally went to sleep. Overall I was happy with the purchase and would recommend this to anyone!

Adorable!

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.

My kids love the Furby!!

My kids love this Furby! I have 4 kids and the youngest is 1 she absoulutely LOVES it so does my oldest and he is 10! Heck I even love the thing!! LOL This toy is a got to have for Xmas! You can take your Ipod, Ipad, or Iphone and feed it, translate furbish etc! Oh they are very durable too my 1 yr old has been rough on it and it's fine afterwards. This is the coolest toy of the year!! Can't wait to buy more. :)

Fun for all

Best toy we got this Christmas and enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Everyone was laughing and playing with it for hours. It really seems to have it's own personality. We have several Apple devices which all work with it using the free app. If you did not have an iPhone or iPad I don't think the toy would be very fun. It is taking us a while to learn Furbish but we sing and read stories to it and it is just so funny how it responds. It falls asleep and snores for a minute or two before being completely quiet. The patterns in the eyes are really cool, the combination of ears, eyelids, movement, phrases and sounds seems to mean endless expressions it never gets boring. It was bought for a seven year old and the fun is going to last a while, as everyone in the family is taking turns teaching it English. It was hilarious hearing the first English words. Now it says "holding and noo noo" (holding and talking) when we play with it which is very endearing. We love you Furby!

Loved it...then it broke suddenly

Furby is an amazing toy, all of my kids and their friends loved it. I loved the capability of playing with Furby through the iphone and ipad. Then out of nowhere, Furby broke. He was not dropped, not mistreated, and now I have a sad child. We have had this toy for 13 days. It has an amazing capability of being a great toy, but I think it needs to be looked at more closely by the manufacturer. It is sad to pay $60 for a toy that suddenly breaks. After reading other reviews, I see that I am not the only one who has had a Furby break after just a few days. So buyer beware!
