Its changed into a boy ffs!!! Dd played with the thing constantly then it said " change time" and turned into a boy-! Please please help

Mine (yes am a 32 year old with a furby), keeps changing as well. Yes it sounds possessed, yes it creeps me out.

Don't panic, it will change back.

DS got one for his birthday last year - one of the personalities it has is a bit stroppy teenager, and one of the things it says is inn that mode is "blah blah blah" in a sarky tone.

Poor DS burst into tears because he thought the furby didn't like him! All was not lost as furby changed back. Now he likes the rude one and calls it Viking Furby grin .

dd got one for Xmas. Best Xmas present ever. She hasn't looked at anything else yet!

We just had the first shift. I am so glad I'd seen this thread first or I'd have kicked it out of the house!

So it's either a teen or a toddler? Well played Furby Co!

Ours from last christmas are not allowed to wake up. The boys go absolutely hysterical if anyone wakes one up; sobbing, crying etc. they are terrified of them.
I'm not even allowed to give them away in case they come back to seek revenge. grin

Nerfmother - there is definitely a film in there!

Heartbrokenmum73 Thu 26-Dec-13 13:37:43

Jesus, I'm glad none of my dc showed even the slightest interest in these - they sound demented and terrifying (the toys, not my dc grin).

Doesn't help that we watched Gremlins a few nights back - too many similarities for my liking...

Mine keeps yelling "too heavy" at me! shock

My GD asked me if I could babysit her furby overnight, don't think she will start a family young.

VelvetSpoon Thu 26-Dec-13 14:08:45

Is it wrong that I really want a Furby now? grin

(DSs are 15 and 12 so a bit too old, sadly!)

hootloop Thu 26-Dec-13 14:12:14

Not to old velvet I had one from DH yesterday.

funkybuddah Thu 26-Dec-13 14:17:48

Dds one keeps shitting out puffer fish and submarines! !!

candycoatedwaterdrops Thu 26-Dec-13 14:25:06

I'm 25 and I have a Furby. blush I got it from my mum after many weeks of making her feel bad for car booting my 1998 original Furby.

chocolatewine Thu 26-Dec-13 14:26:09

What age usually have these?

LEMoncehadacatcalledSANTA Thu 26-Dec-13 14:34:18

My dd is 8

VelvetSpoon Thu 26-Dec-13 14:37:58

Is 41 too old? grin

Just told DS1 I wanted a Furby. Received a Lady Bracknell-esque response 'A FURBY??!' And accompanying look of disdain...

tassisssss Thu 26-Dec-13 14:44:41

Got one fairly last minute for my 7yo as I wasn't convinced the xbox I'd got as a joint kids present was going to thrill her

The furby is a massive hit, I love it! There was a comedy moment during church yesterday (kids take toys) when I was struggling to make it sleep despite googling how to turn a furby boom off before leaving!

RoseRedder Thu 26-Dec-13 14:51:14

I like hatching the furblings and playing with them!

Can this happen? Are there little furbies inside the big furby and if so how do you make them come our?

tassisssss Thu 26-Dec-13 14:52:33

You need the app, wee use the iPad. Really fun!

BusyLittleSpider Thu 26-Dec-13 15:03:07

DD's one ha

BusyLittleSpider Thu 26-Dec-13 15:07:01

DD's one has changed as well, so glad I found this thread and that they change back as DD was a bit upset!

DS has one too, all it seems to do is snore and fart!

I think they are brilliant although FIL was a little freaked out yesterday after he woke up from a nap on the sofa to find them both chatting away at him!

NinjaBunny Thu 26-Dec-13 17:35:07

I like it when it does the MASSIVE shits.

They shit??

fshock fshock fshock

Mummytotwox Thu 26-Dec-13 17:55:48

We have two. They sing and wake each other up. My dd loves hers, and my son made his evil!!

I love them and haven't stopped playing with ds one lol

EthethethethChrisWaddle Thu 26-Dec-13 18:06:45

They sound fabulous! I want one now.

My DSD had one of the originals, we shut it in the cupboard as it didn't shut up. Might try that with the kids later.
