I'm 25. I had one the first time around but these look so much better. AIBU?

I sent an email to my parents requesting a Furby for Christmas, they both emailed back the saying the same thing:

"NO!"

AIBU to buy myself a Furby?

They still freak me out following my experience years ago with one of the original ones.
I was on my own at home, pottering about in the bedroom when I heard a wailing from the wardrobe. I was down the stairs and out the front door so fast, in a complete panic (still gives me palpitations thinking about it). Took me quite a while to remember the bloody furby shoved in the back of the cupboard blush

I got my two girls one last year. Couldn't wait for them to open them but they only played with them for a day.

They took the batteries out as they annoyed them. Two of them like to interact and never shut up.

The Furby thing was after my time. I've got one for my DD for Xmas though. What happens when they turn evil?

I want one too. Was hoping to win the one at the kids Christmas market raffle at their school today though we left early so dont know who got it in the end. didnt receive a phone call either.

If they turn evil you can replace the batteries and push the rest button.

Yabuwink. They are crazy. We have two evil furbies locked in the car.

Iv brought my kids one each for Xmas... Due to the fact we've got them a tablet each and they can now have babies smile I can't wait to play with them lol

I've always wanted a cat or dog on roller skates from Build A Bear, I'm 36 blush

My mum sold mine at a car boot sale last year. <sobs> I knew I should have kept it as they came back into fashion a few months later for crimbo. sad

I'm 33 and want one!

I've bought one for my Ds1's Christmas and very, very nearly kept it for me. It is so adorable. He won't look after it like I will. Poor little furby, it should be mine. sad

I've still got my old one... well... two.. blush

You can feed it via apple or android app! It's cute! It talks! What more do you want?! shock

They babble in furbish and you can teach them English, feed them and turn them good or evil.

Like a really small, easily transportable toddler really.

That does not tell me much about what it does! Not really selling it for my poor DC!

But they are a massive PITA and have no off switch, or so I am told. Thankfully DD is too young, I hope they fall out of favour again before she is old enough.

I'm 26 and I want one.

kelper Sat 30-Nov-13 21:11:09

I'd quite like one too! I had one of the original ones, but I left it at my mums when I moved out and I think she threw it away! Ds' friend has a new one and it's really cool! Mil asked me what I wanted for Christmas earlier, might ask her for one smile

I'm still haunted by DD's from the first time I can still hear the fecking thing yelling doooolooooooo

YAB very very U

MammaTJ Sat 30-Nov-13 21:09:42

My DC both want one! DD1 was neglected by Santa first time around! Tell me why these are better!

Felix90 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:07:43

I wanted one as a kid and never got one hmm I'd be delighted if someone bought me one this year!

Im 29 and I want one! DD is 4 and doesn't. DS is 9 weeks so DH has said he doesn't either angry

YANBU. I'm 24 and I'm trying to steal DDs. They were amazing the first time round and you can turn them evil now grin
