There's a new Furby coming later this year!!
Unfortunately, this model will start at around $60.
Watch the video! This new one looks a lot like the '90s Furby but with more super-deformed features, LED eyes (like a high-res version of Poo-Chi, interesting!) and oh my god it moves so much, it's so cute! Which is good because while the facial features on the 2000s Furby was impressive at the time, it quickly fell into the uncanny valley in a huge way...
Looks, as well, like they ditched the off switch (damn them!!) but included, again, the music recognition from Funky Furby, which is nice.
The personality change process looks creepy and would probably terrify me as a kid... but the concept reminds me of the Meowchi, which, if I remember correctly, would have a different personality based on how you treated it through it's 'kitten' stage.
I don't think Tiger/Hasbro ever really gets rid of concepts, haha...
Tablet interaction was not something I imagined would ever happen... and frankly it seems like a bad idea to me, but I guess parents who can afford a $60 toy probably gave their kids an iPad a long time ago anyway... ~_~
The reviewers only have the blue furby, but from the box art there should be at least 4 colours.
