If you were a child of the ’90s, you likely remember Furby – the odd yet cute toy that you couldn’t help but cuddle with.
After a long hiatus, I am excited to say, Furby’s are back! Hear that? It’s the sound of our childhood calling…
It seems like as time goes on, the ’90s just keep making a comeback. I mean, they were the best years ever.
Now, if you can’t contain your excitement over the return of the Furby toys, I have some good news – you won’t have to wait long.
Hasbro recently announced the return of Furby for the 25th anniversary!
“Following its craze-inducing launch in 1998, Furby has taken the world by storm, impacting every corner of the culture zeitgeist, from music to television and film,” said Kristin McKay, vp & general manager, Hasbro fashion & preschool. “For the brand’s 25th anniversary, we wanted to ignite the same excitement for this new generation by harnessing Furby’s power of nostalgia while giving Gen Alpha everything they crave.”Hasbro Press Release
Now, you may notice from the image above, Furby has an updated look. It’s more colorful, fluffy and cutesy looking.
According to the press release, the interactive toy features five voice-activated modes and more than 600 responses, including lights, sounds and 10 unique songs.
Furby also responds to hugs, pats, belly tickles, shaking, and feeding of its pretend Pizza Charm, yum! Kids can care for Furby by feeding them, combing their furhawk, and dressing them up with the included clip-on beads and fashion accessories. Don’t forget to comb and style that iconic fur for even more best friend moments. The more playtime with Furby, the more fun they can unlock.Hasbro Press Release
