Furby Electronic Toy Pets

Furby electronic toy pets entered the world back in 1998 when the first Furby made its appearance at an American Toy Fair. The Furby was among the first electronic toy pets that you could train and make respond to human interaction. This made them appealing for parents who did not want to get a real pet and all inconveniences that come with it, but still wanted to give their children something to cuddle. Furbies have lots to offer and after some revivals continue to be popular.

Furby Personalities

Furby character toys can learn, and thus their personalities depend on the way you interact with them. When you first take your Furby out of the package, it has a default personality that you can reset at any point. Have long conversations with your Furby, and it shall start fluttering its eyelashes and using simple phrases in its speech. If you bully your Furby, it becomes a kind of crazy and starts to burp, fart, and laugh at itself. Overfeeding your Furby results in an evil personality, while playing it lots of music leads to lots of singing and dancing from the Furby.


Tiger Electronics produced the Furbies and found they were immensely popular from their launch, becoming must-haves for almost every child. They went out of style in the early 2000s, but saw two revivals, one in 2005, and another in 2012. Since 2005, Hasbro took over the production. The Furbies continue to develop and will probably remain a favourite for many generations of children.

Furby Connect

Modern technology allows to use a special app, the Furby World Connect, with your Furby and also let it interact with other Furbies, even have some conversations. Download the app to better connect with your Furby, share your friends, and also enjoy in-app surprises.

Furby Types

The classic battery-operated Furby initially speaks its own language, Furbish, but gradually learns if you spend more time with it. The more you speak to your Furby, the more it wall talk back and eventually use less and less Furbish. An electric motor and gams and gears make its eyes, mouth, and ears move. Furby babies are smaller than the original, but they cannot dance and have higher voices. The babies learn to talk more quickly. Emoto-tronic Furbies entered the scene in 2005 with the first revival and featured a more emotional face and a better voice recognition system. The second revival in 2012 introduced Furby toys with more expressive eyes, more motions, and a special app.
