Elderly Furby Neglect
Fun with Old Furbies
They are cute. They can talk. They are furry. They are a blast from the past. They are elderly Furbies.
Now that the new Furbies are hitting the market, one must ask, "What happened to the old Furbies?" Why are we so eager to start new with these expensive, brightly colored Furbies when there are elderly Furbies that still have life in them? It is pretty unfair. Someone has to speak up for the senior citizen Furbies. That is why I am writing this important hub.
Let us not forget the Fultis and Maydahs and Meemees and Nooloos from the past. They were lovely creatures with pleasant dispositions. Sure, many a Furby suffered an untimely death when a dog or cat got to them. However, many Furbies still exist.
Elderly Furbies still live in the back of closets, hide in the shadows in attics, and lurk in garages. They want to be loved. It is totally unfair for a new batch of Furbies to arrive without giving the elderly Furbies the proper attention and love they deserve. We can all make a difference. Let's put an end to Elderly Furby Neglect!
Elderly Furbies Have Tales to Tell
You may not realize it, but elderly Furbies still have a lot to contribute. They are still adorable. Their stories in the old Furbish language are fascinating. The younger Furbies can learn so much from senior citizen Furbies. Maybe they can't dance or talk to your iPhone like new Furbies, but they still have a lot going for them.
For instance, old Furbies can share their tales from long ago. They remember a time of being sold at stores like Montgomery Wards. There was that one Christmas when customers scurried all the way from end of the mall to the other end just to find a . If there was a snow on the ground, I'll bet they even had to walk through plenty of feet of snow for miles (or just through the parking lot) to get a Furby. Those fluffy little critters were flying out the store and everyone wanted one! Furby
Furbies can even educate the younger Furbies about a time when President Clinton was still in office and alternative music was actually still cool. The Furbies were also afraid of Y2K. After all, if you were filled with that many computer chips, you might be scared of the year 2000, too!
Bring the Old Furbies Out!
I believe the time has come! It is no longer right to keep the elderly Furbies hidden anymore. It is time for a Furby revolution! Those cute old guys don't deserve to be neglected. The senior citizen Furbies should be part of society again.
Just because these new Furbies are so brightly colored you could spot one a mile away, doesn't mean the old Furbies should be ignored. Their pastel colors or gray or white fur was appreciated not that long ago by many Furby fans. You can even do your part to make your older Furby feel more comfortable around the new Furbies. Knitting a nice, bright sweater for your elderly Furby will certainly make him feel more at home with the new crew.
Don't forget, there were even special edition Furbies, such as Baby Furbies, Santa Furbies, and Gremlin Furbies. Those little balls of fluff are ready to come out of retirement as well. It is time to appreciate your older Furbies. It is also a good time to remember when you could get one for 30 bucks at the store. For $60, these new Furbies better be able to cook dinner! I am getting off topic though....
Bring out your old Furbies! Take a walk down memory lane. Your elderly Furby will say, "Dah-kah-oo-nye!" In case you don't know what that means, it is, "thank you" in Furbish.
