Where Is the Best Place to Buy a Pink Furby?

Updated on September 7, 2014

Where Is the Best Place to Buy a Pink Furby?

Oh Yeah... the Furby is back!

A new and updated version of the Furby is this year's hot toy for kids and grown-ups alike.

Originally produced in 1998, Furby was one of the biggest toy crazes of the 1990s, and now it looks like it's going to be one of the biggest crazes of 2013!

Of course, any great toy is even better when it's PINK, so I'm going to show you the best place to buy your very own PINK FURBY.

When buying pretty much ANY toy, pink or otherwise, I've always found that buying from Amazon is my best bet. That's where I'm pretty sure to get the best price, and who doesn't need to keep costs down? Since Amazon doesn't have the overhead costs of a brick-and-mortar retailer, they're able to pass the savings down to the consumer. It gets even better with Amazon's free shipping option!

Also, at Amazon you get the best selection and you don't need to fight the wild crowds during the holiday season. Sure, your local toy shop may have Furbies in stock, but maybe not. Or, they may have plenty of Furbies, but NO PINK ONES! Who wants that headache?

Not me, that's for sure! And I bet it's not for you, either. So, enjoy this lens and renew your friendship with Furbies!

Furbish Lesson 1

What Does the New Pink Furby Look Like?

How She Differs From the Original Pink Furby

If you owned an original Furby (before 2000), you'll immediately notice some major differences.

The new Pink Furby looks largely similar to earlier models. You'll notice that the colors of the 2012 Furby are brighter than those of the classic Furby. Bolder and more "neon."

Just below her big, beautiful eyes is a beak/mouth that opens and closes as she speaks and/or eats. Inside the mouth is a tongue. Press down on the tongue with your finger and your Furby will start making "chewing" motions, just like you're really feeding her!

The Pink Furby shown here is the 2012 Basic Pink Furby.

doo?: What? (Furbies say this when called)

The 2012 Furby Has BIG, Beautiful Eyes

A New Look For Those Peepers

The new Furby has big, white, glowing LCD eyes - and I do mean big! (I mean, just take a look to your right!)

In the creation of these eyes, Hasbro designed what they call "dot-matrix pupils." These updated eyes will help your Furby show her different moods! And sometimes your Furby may treat you to some "special" images - rainbows, fire/flames and peace signs have been reported.

The 2012 Furby eyelids have remained pretty much the same. They still slide open whenever your Furby wakes up from sleep mode, but that's about as exciting as it gets.

The pink Furby Shown Here is the Punky Pink Furby Plush. (Note: This Furby has a combination of black and pink fur with pink ears and eyes..)

What Comes with Your Pink Furby?

Well... A Pink Furby!

Furby is a pretty minimalistic toy. In the box you'll find your new pink Furby and... an instruction guide!

Yep - that's it. No batteries are included, so you'll need to have at least four AA alkaline batteries at hand.

What Does a Furby Do?

Shake, Rattle and Roll

As with the original model, the 2012 Furby responds to your voice and to music.

But, your 2012 pink Furbey also got a big tech upgrade! According to a review on Furby mechanics posted by Engadget.com, she's now got what are called "capacitive sensors" in different parts of her body (head, stomach, back and sides). These sensors react to certain touches, like tickling, petting, or tail pulling. Additionally, there is a "mechanical tilt switch" inside that lets her know whether you're throwing her around the room or shoving her in underneath a pile of dirty laundry.

Don't forget that your Furby can also play with other Furbies! You can try introducing her to other Furbies and see how they get along. She may get along well with some Furby-folk and, well, pretty bad with others. After all, as the Hasbro site says, "each Furby develops its own personality!"

The pink Furby Shown Here is the Pink Furby Cotton Candy Plush.

Care and Feeding of Your Pink Furby

Buuuuuurp!

Your new pink Furby will be hungry, and she has the ability to chew on your finger (which is how she is "fed") as well as burp!

With the new 2012 Furbies you have two feed options - you can feed your Furby with your finger by inserting your finger in its mouth and depressing the tongue OR via the new, free Furby App!

With the Furby App you can virtually feed your Furby. For example, Hasbro says that if you choose to feed her a hot pepper, you may "see fire in her eyes!" (What psycho toy designer thought up that little trick?) You need to try feeding your Furby different foods to see how she responds to each one.

Your Furby won't die if you don't feed her, but she'll definitely get really cranky! You've been warned!

The Free Furby App

Feeding and Talking to Your Pink Furby Just Got Easier

The free Furby iOS app is optional and the documentation states that it "works with iPad, iPod touch and iPhone with iOS 4.2 or later."

The app has a Furbish/English translator that will listen to your Furby's speech and translate it into English. It also features a dictionary, as well as a variety of foods you can "virtually feed" to your Furby. You serve your Furby by "flicking them in her general direction." (At least you won't have to clean spilled food off the floor if you should miss!)

How To Understand Your Pink Furby

Do You Speak Furbish?

When you first meet your pretty pink Furby, she will speak only Furbish. Furbish is the Furbies' native language, and is composed of short words/syllables strung together to create a phrase. The more you interact with your Furby, the more she will speak to you in English. There's a bit of a learning curve for both of you!

If you still end up having a big problem understanding your new pet's utterances, don't worry. Hasbro has developed a free App which includes the entire Furbish dictionary.
