If you’re looking for the ultimate holiday gift, look no further than the Furby Connect!
This adorable little guy has come a long way from the original Furby years ago-the new Furby Connect technology has advanced to keep up with the times and we are loving every little bit of it!
The most notable feature of the new Furby Connect is the Bluetooth connectivity that helps the Furby Connect interact with you through an app on your mobile device. This opens up a whole world of possibilities for playing with and interracting with your new “pet”!
Outside of the app, you can tickle, feed, pet, shake or jiggle his antenna to play with your Furby Connect, but when you open up the Furby Connect World app on your mobile device there is so much more.
My son loves to hatch new “Furblings” to raise in the app along with his Furby Connect. Each time an egg is ready to hatch he giggles as he gets to see what their colors and personality will be.
He also enjoys feeding his Furby Connect through the app because you shoot it into it’s mouth with a food cannon! Watch your Furby Connect’s eyes to see what it is hungry for and send those foods from the app straight to the Furby Connect.
What happens when your Furby Connect eats all it’s food? It has to go to the bathroom. The app turns into a toilet that you hold your Furby Connect over so it can go. As you can imagine, this is a favorite for all the kids as they burst into uncontrollable fits of giggles.
Your Furby Connect will update along with the Furby Connect World app, so expect new words and songs each time your app updates! Your Furby Connect will sing along to songs and videos you can watch with them inside the app (all kid-friendly!).
Any toy can get overwhelmingly annoying over time when it’s chatting and making noise, so my favorite feature as a mom is that when you place the (included) eye mask onto your Furby Connect, it will go to sleep…and stay that way until you remove the eye mask! No random chatter in the middle of the night OR when your child is trying to finish up homework. You can choose when your Furby Connect is awake and ready to play.
The Furby connect is seriously adorable and so loved by my kids. We aren’t pet people but my kids are always asking for one and this is the perfect middle ground. The Furby Connect is a great buy and perfect for a gift this holiday season!
