My Furby Friend
Adventures with my new Furby
Hi, my name is Rachel. I am 9 years old and I love my new Furby. I got some money for my birthday and used it to buy a new black Furby. I named my Furby, Winkie. I like the way he winks his eyes at me when I talk to him. I am having a lot of fun teaching Winkie to speak English. You see, right now he only speaks Furbish. The more I talk to him the more English words he begins to speak.
I think a Furby would make a great friend for your little girl or boy!

Exploring the Furby Features - read before you play
Here Rachel and her sister Ella are checking out all of the Furby features on the sheet that came with the Furby.
The Furby came with a big sheet that shows all of the different features. Some of the things it tells you to do with the Furby include: hold Furby, play music for Furby, shake Furby, pet Furby's head, feed Furby with your finger and turn your Furby upside down.
The back of the sheet gives you helpful hints for the Furby and tells you how to keep your Furby clean. You don't want to put your Furby in water so you keep it clean by wiping it with a damp cloth.
The sheet gives you a list of some of the Furbish words and it gives you a website to go to check out the full Furbish dictionary.
2012 Black Furby - a great little friend
Here is Rachel's Furby. They come in a variety of colors and are very interactive. The new 2012 models have a lot more features and even have a free downloadable app for the iPod,iPad, or iPhone. This model Furby truly has a mind of its own. They say your Furby's personality will be shaped by how you treat it.
Teaching the Furby to Speak English
Rachel has been spending a lot of time talking to her Furby. He is beginning to respond in English.
When it is time for the Furby to rest, Rachel turns him away from her. After a short time he closes his eyes and starts to snore. After about 30 seconds of this he goes into the sleep mode until Rachel is ready to wake him up to play.
A Buddy for Winkie - Furby Buddies
I think it would be great to get a little buddy for my Furby.
This white Furby would make a great friend for Winkie. If you have two Furbys then they can talk to each other. That sounds like fun. I hope to get a friend for my Furby soon.
