Furby Boom

Furby BoomA brand new breed of Furby is set to take toyland by storm. Brighter, smarter and more interactive than ever, Furby Boom is tipped to be the No. 1 best-selling toy of Christmas 2013. The clever folks at Hasbro have added apps into the mix, along with iPad and smartphone compatibility. These funky balls of fur are smart plush toys for the touch-screen, digital generation.

What does Furby Boom do?

Play games, take a virtual shower, have an X-ray, feed, lay virtual eggs and hatch Furblings! That’s just for starters. Hamleys summed up the genius of Furby Boom perfectly; this is a must-have toy that combines the physical with the digital. Kids get a soft plush toy that can move, chatter away in Furbish, giggle, dance and interact with the latest digital devices. It’s the best of both worlds in one cute, brightly patterned critter. Like any Furby Boom will tell you, it’s “awesome sauce”!

Each Furby Boom has five new personalities activated through play. One-to-one interaction shapes their personalities and literally brings these mini playmates to life.
