My mom really wanted to get me one when I was a kid. She actually had to ask her friend in Tx to get one at their store and mail it to her for me (for Christmas) Because our stores were sold out. x_X
I had one normal one, and then later I had a blue/yellow/red baby furbie. I also had the PC game which was AWESOME. biggrin
I had 2 more later on just to have them again not to long ago, and when I was moving to my apartment, my fiance had the 2 in the back seat and of course, they turned on. XD They kept going "weee" the whole time and had the hiccups.
Those things were creepy as all heck. They would talk when no one was around, sometimes even after the batteries were removed o___o
They're still sitting in the cabinet we put them in to shut them up...
I still have both of my furbies. Loved the toy as a kid. My first furby as called "Darth Maul" because it was red with black spots and had white inside its ears, making it look as if it had horns. xD I'm shocked Darth Maul Furby still works. He has been dropped countless times, stopped working on several occasions, jostled around in boxes in various moves. He even came back from the dead once. After falling off of a shelf he didn't work for a few months and a friend of mine, who I swear was some kind of Furby Whisperer stuck some batteries in him and he worked again.
If you point a television remote close to a furby's head and push a button, you can screw it up! I can't remember how I discovered it, but I can remember wrecking another one after the first just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. It was not... poor, evil furby.
I used to have one when I was small.
It suddenly turned on in the middle of the night (while I had put it off) and started singing. My brother in the other room yelled "shut the ******** up!!" mrgreen
It was funny for a while but in the end it was annoying. (It sort of got broken, I don't know how, and would get stuck when it made a sound so it kept repeating it the whole time scream )
