Thinking back to my teenage years when the original Furby was introduced, it’s incredible to see the way the brand has been able to revolutionize digitally-integrated play. The Furby Connect uses technology to connect and interact with kids in such a new way. Once you bring home this magical new friend, you will be in for a world of surprises!
From the moment we unboxed the Furby Connect, the girls have not stopped talking to their new friend. With over 1,000 unique phrases and 100+ animations, each experience with the creature is something new and fun. Additionally, the Furby Connect is able to interact with kids through its own silly version of songs, videos, and more through the Bluetooth®-enabled app, Furby Connect World.
The app adds a whole new level of engagement by bringing the Furby Connect —and your child— into a virtual world filed with surprises! Inside the app you can name your Furby Connect and watch as they remember it. Plus, it can learn even more songs and new phrases by watching videos inside the virtual Movie Theater. Adding to its vocabulary creates even more unique content for engagement as you continue to play with your Furby Connect. As your child plays with their Furby Connect, he can tell them about his visit to the virtual world.
Of course, your Furby Connect has needs too. Inside Furby Connect World, not only can you feed your Furby Connect virtual food, but your Furby Connect can use the toilet in the app as well. Parents do need to be aware of in-app purchases before downloading the free app.
Finally, one of the newest features of the Furby Connect not seen in past generations is the ability to turn off the interactive toy. The Furby Connect comes with a sleep mask that, when worn, shuts off the toy. The Furby Connect can take a break and be ready to play as soon as the mask is removed. It can now rest peacefully in your child’s room while they sleep.
