I've never had one,and after seeing a Japanese commercial of them,I definitely didn't want one. I've heard a lot of stories about those things,that they have a mind of it's own. And the being able to talk even without the batteries,If that happened,I'd burn it.
I remember Furbies, looking back now, they were creepy little guy, although they look adorable eek
The one I used to own was a black and brown one, and I remember that the batteries died in it once, and I left it a long time before replacing them, and when I did, it started screaming, and wouldn't stop until I took out the batteries! gonk
Needless to say, I didn't play with it again after that, and since then, I'm not too sure what's happened to it eek
Did you know that they've recently brought back the Furbies? They even have a slightly different design.
What made them think that bringing them back was a good idea, I'll never know, I certainly wont be buying them for any of my future children gonk
I nvr had one but I used to hang out at my friend's house all the time and she had one and it would just wake up and start talking. the most irritating thing ever. though, I gotta admit, I think they're cute
I also thought they were quite cute and was obsessed with them at the time. Had quite a few myself, although I was only really into the original ones. Had about 5 of those (one blew up and my cousin broke my first one, which was my favourite gonk), two Furby babies (never played with them much), and Gizmo from Gremlins and E.T. if he counts.
