More interactive than Furbies from earlier generations - and the more it "hears," the more it develops. App enhances the toy but is not required. Lots of designs available.
Pricey. Can be noisy.
Furby will sleep if you put a mask on him. Many adventures available via the easy-to-use app, including the creation of virtual Furblings. The app is not required for enjoyment, however.
With active use, this Furby requires lots of battery replacements.
Interacts with Furby Boom (separate purchase). Syncs with app for virtual adventures. Small and cute with various fur patterns available. Fits nicely in small hands.
To get the most out of this purchase, you also need to own a Furby Boom - an additional expense. Some parents find the noises it makes irritating.
Pairs with Star Wars Furblings. Makes cool Wookie sounds and hums songs from the movies.
Some owners say it's not quite as interactive as a traditional Furby (though it's still a lot of fun).
