According to toy industry “experts”, the biggest toy this holiday season is the “Furby”. Yep, the “Furby” is the same creepy, talking fur ball creature that the media said kids loved back in the late ’90s. I hated these things back then and now both of my kids want one! It looks like somethin’ that I’d hunt…
Hasbro released a brand new Furby this year with less-creepy eyes and of course, an iPhone app. Even though the Furbys are EXPENSIVE at $54 bucks and up, they’re already sold out at Wal-Mart and running low on Amazon.com Remember when it was little muscled dudes like “HE-MAN” and “Battle Cat”? Now it’s little demons with creepy hair! HA….
Here’s the question though: do your kids actually want this? You should probably ask them before you go get into a Wal-Mart cage match with another parent over the last” Furby” tonight.
I’m takin’ my kiddos tonight and I’m gonna let ‘em play with the little furry creepy devil for a bit and see if it’s worth the $100 Santa will spend next week! I’ll post the results ASAP!
