YANBU I think they look very cute and am planning one for ds3 (6). Ds's 1&2 had the other ones.

pumpkinhellokitty Mon 22-Oct-12 14:41:19

then worried that if i get dd 7 yrs one dd 4 yrs will want one too

do i get dd yrs one or both of them one

DD has asked for one not really sure what they do but i know they connect with iphone/ipad in some way (i'm not technically minded!!)
But it's the kind of thing she likes.

you could get one between them

Also might be better posting in the "christmas" section for recommendations.

I thought about it, I had one first time round, then I seen the price and thought 'fuck that'

JackThePumpkinKing Mon 22-Oct-12 14:53:08

They're £60 in Toys R Us - Cheapest on Amazon is about £59 (the cheaper ones are used).

RIdiculous price.

What actually is the point of a furbie??

pumpkinhellokitty Mon 22-Oct-12 17:08:05

hi scootle -

each one has its own personality depending on how you look after them
you never know how they are going to react to the different things that you do to them

they react - move and make noises when you -

pull there tail
tickle there tummy
hang them upside down
cuddle them
when you talk to them
when you feed them
when you play music

My older Dc's had furbies the first time round.

I thought the same thing awwww aint they cute etc.

They drove me friggin mental the creepy wee fuckers used to start talking to each other for no reason, at odd times. They were always cheeping and chirping and you couldnt switch the buggers off. They used to talk to some other toy we had too but cant remember what it was now

Soon as interest was lost off to the charity shop they went. grin

Thank you pumpkin Don't they make noises in the middle of the night and wake your dc up. I am so sick of soft toys but this might be a fallback option if I can't think of anything else for dds!

i had one the first time round., i remebr jumping up and down goin g"omg omg you got me one you got me one"

month later it started to bug the fuck out of me.

fyi.. even if you put them on the room via your skylight and it rains... they STILL work!!!

wonderingsoul Tue 23-Oct-12 11:13:27

roof.. not room

TheCunningStunt Tue 23-Oct-12 11:15:26

Nope there a waste of money. Creepy fuckers urgh and so not worth £50.

Petsinmyputridpudenda Tue 23-Oct-12 19:27:31

I got one first time around

Pure fucking evil it was, drowned it in the bath after it went all satanic one night

freddiefrog Tue 23-Oct-12 19:28:10

I nearly bought one the other day.

I got all nostalgic about the one I had (that my mother broke when she was 3 sheets to the wind at their New Year's Eve party) and realised how much they cost so put it back on the shelf sharpish

pumpkinhellokitty Tue 23-Oct-12 19:29:47

It is a tricky one
Sure my dd age 7 yrs would luv one
