How to turn the new Furby off?

Updated on December 25, 2012

Where is the on off switch on the new Furby?

The new Furby is going to be the hottest toy for Christmas 2012. Loads of children are going to hope they find one of these chirping little lovable creatures under the tree. They are interactive and are sure to become a toybox favorite. But, not everyone is going to want to hear the little guy twenty-four hours a day. We are taking bets that "How do you turn that (blank) thing off?" is going to be one of the number one questions heard the day after Santa arrives.

And, thankfully, we have the answer for you!

And the answer is......

There is NO on and off switch. Yep, that's right. There is no way to turn the little sucker off. Can we say "Buy more batteries" and "Buy more aspirin for your headache"?

So, what is a tired and frustrated parent to do?

1. Put Furby in a dark room (preferably one that little ones have never seen or are afraid to go into) and he should settle down. Well, that is the hope anyway.

2. Take the batteries out. Flip that puppy over and give them a good yank and accidentally misplace them.

Good luck with either option.

      Putting the Furby in a dark room was what we did when my daughter had one the first time Furby's were so popular. It always worked ;)
