All I want for Christmas
This time of year, children are bombarded with television ads, newspaper ads, and huge store displays showing the next “gotta have it” toy for the holiday season. As a parent, it can be a huge struggle trying to figure out which toys your children really want and which one they ‘think’ they want as a result of media overload. Last year, my DS7 begged me for Furby. ‘I’ve gotta have one!’ he pleaded with me over and over again. Unfortunately, by the time he decided he wanted one, they entire Furby population had been sold out. The mad rushes were over, the waiting in line was not existent and shelves contained only dust bunnies. I felt awful, but I had plenty of other presents under the tree to make him smile. Plus, it was fad right?
Furby is back with Furby BOOM and its bigger and better then ever!
The Furby Boom has:
★ All new personalities
After installing the four AA batteries in it’s undercarriage, the Furby magically comes to life! It was love at first sight! My kids loved the way the Furby Booms reacted to their voices, their touch and others Furbies. You can tickle, feed, pet, shake, hug, tilt, hold your Furby Boom upside down, and pull its tail. They react to the world around them and interpret it in different ways creating its own unique personality. Sometimes, one Furby Boom will like being tickled on their tummy and ask for more, whereas another Furby Boom will get mad at you when you tickle it. Depending upon how you play with your Furby Boom, it can develop Rockin, Sweet, Hyper, Jolly, or Fiesty personalities. If you don’t like the personality your Furby Boom it taking on, simple change the way you interact with your Furby and your Furby’s personality will change.
★ Remembers its own name and that of other Furbys
Naming your Furby Boom is tons of fun! The first time you hook your Furby Boom up you Iphone or Android, you have the opportunity to choose its name! No John Doe for these Furbies, instead they end up with names such as Tee-Toh or Doh Daa. The best part is you’ll never forget your Furby’s name as the FurbyBoom remembers it and constantly uses it in the 3rd person when telling you it likes or dislikes.
Furby Boom love being around other Furby Booms. When they recognize the presence of another Furby, they will strike up a conversation, react to each others words, remember each others names and if inspired, they will sing. The great thing about Furby Boom is they are as unique as people, sometimes Furby Booms don’t get along!
★ New bold pattern designs
No more plain Jane for the Furby. The all New Furby Boom is created with beautiful bold patterns. From hearts to peacock to army colouring, each Furby is as unique as its personality.
★ New immersive App experience
The App experience is amazing! The Furby Boom is compatible with Apple (iOS) and Google (Android) mobile devices. You simply place you Furby Boom 3-5 inches away from your mobile device (preferably on a flat surface) With this app, you can save the data for up to three Furby Booms.
The Furby Boom App allows you to keep track of your Furby Boom’s health, hunger and cleanliness levels. You are your Furby’s caregiver! You are responsible for feeding them, taking them to the washroom, keeping them clean and providing medical attention if needed. One experience is not like another! The Furby Boom’s individual characteristics shine through providing you with an unique experience each time.
If you take good care of your Furby Boom, they may lay a virtual Furby Furblings egg! This opens a whole new dimension of play to the game! From soccer games to dance competitions to hide seek, the fun never stops! As you collect and hatch virtual Furblings eggs, your digital city fills up with virtual Furblings that you and your Furby Boom can interact with. Fill the city and you have a chance to hatch the GOLDEN EGG!
The Furby Boom sleeps!
Having three kids, did I really want to add three Furby Boom kids to the family too? Luckily, Furby Booms like to sleep! If you pull the Furby Boom’s tale and hold it for ten seconds, it goes to sleep. It is so much easier dealing with a Furby then it is with a two year old at bed time!
Would I recommend the Furby Boom?
The Furby Boom is cute, reacts to your voice and touch and has its own app, what’s not to love? Recommended for children ages 6+, the Furby Boom has become a great companion to DS7, DS5 and DD2 (to a lesser extent). My children love playing with their Furby Booms and have taken to killing my phone battery a time or two, with the argument “I was only trying to take care of my Furby!” They love the competitive aspect of the Furby Boom app. There is a competition between DS7 and DS5 to see who can get there first.
DD2, although doesn’t understand the Furby Boom app, loves her Furby Boom just as much as her siblings. She is constantly waking them up, ticking their fur and trying to get them to interact with her. She loves setting the Furby Boom’s up so that they can converse with each other and loves it when they start singing. Her favourite game is driving Mommy nuts, by waking up all 3 Furby Booms and surround Mommy with them then walking away, only to come back ten minutes later to sleeping Furby Boom’s to do it all over again!
Furby Boom is definitely the “it” toy of this holiday season! Get your Furby Boom TODAY, so that you aren’t stuck, like I was last year, with a shelves full of dust bunnies!
