Advantages: learn new words, tricks
Disadvantages: annoying toy, repetitive
We have 3 Furbies, one for each of our children. They tend to get little use most of the time, it's one of those toys that is a bit of a fad. Once in use they can soon get on your nerves with the regular, and costly battery changes and repetitive sayings.
One way of getting better use from your toy is to visit one of the many Furby web sites, they have many tips to get the most out of it.
If furby moves quickly, it will go WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Put furby in front of a blinking light and it'll start groaning.
Reset furby 4 times and it'll learn English faster.
If you have three, take one, put it upside down and shake it and the others will cry.
If you dip your furby from side to side, it'll hiccup. If you do it again, you'll have to wait till it stops whatever it's doing/saying.
If your furby is bad, punish him by holding him upside down. Then shake him/her.
To make furby burp 8 times, feed him three times in a row and then pet him three times in a row.
To let furby know that you like what it's done, pet him 2 times and he'll repeat more often.
If you cover Furby's eyes 3 times in a row, it will play a game you never thought Furby could play! OR says something you never thought it could say.
If it crashes - ie makes a droning noise and won't work reset by opening the battery cover. Remove and replace one of the batteries. Pressing the reset button will make it forget all it's learnt.
Best tip of all is to hide it where the kids won't find it ! Hopefully they'll forget all about it.
