which woke me up at 5:40am from inside the dark and silent linen cupboard.

Didn't wake up dd2 though did it? Oh no.

I need it to stay asleep all night, silently, or I'm afraid it might be on the receiving end of some serious consequences. Fire and/or hammer consequences.

I hate all of the Furbys that my kids own. I find I only have to breathe near them and they set off with their annoying babble for ages.

They are the work of satan IMO.

Dd is petrified of her Furby. My mum paid a fair few quid for it and it stands behind a book in it's multi coloured ugliness, with dd running off if it talks....

Oh , Furbies . I remember the first batch (lol , making them sound like Gremlins ..... then again) , drove me nuts.

These new ones would drive me crazier . . Poor Op you got my sympathies

All three of my children have indicated they'd like one. I've indicated that they're free to buy what they like once they leave home grin

I am deeply, deeply regretting this purchase.

What sort of bastard creates a toy that just will not shut the fuck up, jabbers on in a nails-down-the-blackboard tone and volume and spontaneously wakes up in the middle of the goddamned night, BUT DOESNT INCLUDE AN OFF SWITCH?

AND puts the batteries in a chamber on accessed only via teeny tiny screw driver?

And absolute bloody bastard that is who.

They are wee dicks.
We had them first time round and my little brother came running into my room in the middle of the night with a Furby chanting demonic verses and a wild look of terror in his eyes.
I laughed so hard I woke the other fucking Furby up.

That's bad.

Damn. Dd isn't at school yet. My dtb had a Furby in the 90s but my dad stuck a big knife through it while off his meds. I'm WAY more normal than I should be confused
