Here Comes Furby Boom!

by Linette

Furby’s back and better than ever! There’s a  new generation of Furbys, the new Furby Boom has a mind of it’s own, and comes in several bold, fabulous colors. This is a sponsored review of the new Furby Boom. We received a Furby to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own.

One of the coolest new features on the Furby Boom is he (or she if you’re Furby is a girl) will interact with your smart phone or tablet when you install the Furby Boom app from the Apple or Google Play app store for your device. Then just place the device in front of Furby and he’ll start the interaction. You can check out the new Furby Boom at Walmart.

My nephew loved the new Furby Boom. It started out speaking Furbish, but then it also started saying a few words. He’s a really cool bright blue camouflage. I love the colors! We named our Furby Toh-Bay in Furbish, which means Little Big Ears. It fits, don’t you think?

One of the things we love about Toh-Bay our little Furby Boom is all the fun expressions on his face! You never know what his eyes and ears are going to do next! He’s always in motion while he’s talking.

Whether he’s dancing to the music, laughing because you’re tickling his belly, or begging you to turn him right side up, it’s fun to interact and see what he’s going to do next, even before you have him interact with your device. He’s even adorable when he’s sleeping!

When you put your new Furby in front of an iPhone, iPad, or Android with the Furby Boom App installed you can use the app to interact with your Furby even more. You can care for it through the app by feeding it, giving it a shower, and other things to keep him healthy. He’ll reward you with virtual Furbling eggs. You can collect the eggs and hatch ’em all until you have all 48. You can use them to build a virtual city, or even get lucky enough to get a golden egg!

As they hatch out you can name them and add them to your collection by caring for them too, along with your original Furby.

We’ve had a blast hatching out Furblings here. You can play with the app with your Furby, or play with the app even when your Furby isn’t with you. I’m sure this interactive toy is going to top quite a few Christmas wish lists this holiday season!

If you’re child has a Furby Boom on their holiday wish list this year you can find one here: Furby Boom at Walmart

I remember the original Furby, my son had one. This new guy is super cute! We’ve come along way with toys, now they integrate with apps, so cool.

I had a furby as a kid and now my kid-sister is asking for one which I think is so neat that they’ve stayed popular so long. 🙂

I think this is so funny that these are on my kids’ Christmas lists, because I remember when they were popular years ago!!! I guess if it’s fun to have then keep it around!
