With love from people of Hasbro, we were introduced to the world of FURBY BOOM!
We may be boys but that does not mean we could not fall for a fluffy Furby.
|Our new friend|
Say hi to Loo-Bay , our hot fluffy friend.
Loo-Bay belongs to the 2nd generation of the popular Furby. Featuring all the 'magic' and personality of its predecessor, the new FURBY BOOM promised double the fun with a combination of physical and digital play.
Atter we got acquainted with Loo-Bay , we decided to explore the digital connection with him.
Other than talking and tickling him till he laughs, We were told we could control him via the IPads and iPhones (works with Android too)
Simply download an app from the App Store or Play Store and you are good to go!
|Interact with Furby on iPad.|
In fact don't be surprised if your FURBY develops multiply personalities after a while.
|Set up the Furby|
Once you are set up, you can interact with FURBY with numerous activites via the app. A interactive dashboard feature monitors the well-being of our friend including health, hunger and cleanliness level.You can send FURBY for a bath or raid the fridge and in return he will reward you with colourful eggs.
Was it difficult to interact with Furby via the App?
For us,age 3 and 6, we had a quick tutorial from Daddy and we are good to go. So we reckon this should be a breeze for kids.
Having the FURBY BOOM apps means you have the possibility of playing with more than one Furby when you are rewarded with an egg. Over 50 eggs are to be collected within the FURBY BOOM app. Each egg will hatch into a furbling with its own set of activities for the individual furblings, thus promising endless variation of fun and interaction. You could virtually create a whole city of little furblings on the app... Super cool!
This meant that we finally met someone who is more hyper than us!
However Furby does rest and goes to sleep if left undisturbed.
|Playing with Furby|
Having a 24/7 hyperactive friend can only only be highly disturbing after a while, but it also mean the batteries will be drain in no time. Loo-Bay almost went on a permanent sleep after a mere 3 days and we had to take emergency surgery to replace his batteries.
To conserve batteries , you can make FURBY sleep using these various methods.
- Place Furby on its back for 15s
- Place Furby in a quiet room and do not play with it
- Pull tail for 10s
- Take out the batteries
FURBY is suitable for age 6 and up and retails for Sgd 119.90 from major department stores, Toys R Us and selected Electronic stores at Epicentre, Nubox, iStudio etc. 4 AA batteries required to activate FURBY.

This Techie Thursday segment was made possible by Hasbro. No furbies were harm nor were we given funds to raise him. All opinions are of our own and none of the talkative FURBY.
