What Is Furby Connect?

Sylvia and I love being part of the Hasbro Toy testing team and recently we were sent a brand new blue Furby Connect to review. I had never heard of a Furby Connect before however Sylvia had seen the recently released Furby on television and she was super excited to become the owner of her very own Furby Connect.

When you get the Furby out of the packaging you will need to add four AA batteries. Then Furby perks up and begins his life. One fantastic thing about Furby Connect is that the little creature can connect to an electronic device such as an iPhone.

Connecting Furby For The First Time

When we connected Furby for the first time to Sylvia’s iPod, she was asked to choose a name for her new Furby, as she picked out possible names, the Furby character jived and jigged and gave opinions on the name choices. It made the whole family laugh instantly and was really quite fun.

Using a Smartphone with Furby Connect

Connecting to a smartphone or tablet enables Furby to get regular updates. He has an antenna which doubles as a joystick for playing games on the Furby Connect App. The antenna also lights up when there is a new content to download for Furby which could be a new song or more words to add to the Furbish dictionary.

The Furby is a fun toy pet and Sylvia absolutely loves hers. She named her blue Furby Bee-Dah  She has to take care of him and has already hatched some baby Furblings on the app. The Furby does not stop talking and is very intuitive. He can recognise certain actions and respond.

Some of the ways to interact with Furby Connect is to hold Furby, shake him, talk to him, play music to him, feed and tickle him. Furby is intelligent and responds. Playing with Furby is really fun and the whole family could not stop laughing at some of the silly and funny phrases he came out with.

Furby Connect can lays digital eggs and can poop out all kind of things digitally when you place him on the screen of your smartphone or device.

I think the Furby is a fantastic toy. He is adorable and cute and funny. He can talk too much at times and drive you bonkers but that’s okay because he has a sleeping mask which puts him to sleep when your ready for a break.

I think Sylvia is going to have hours of fun with her new Furby. It’s  a fantastic toy for her to use alongside the app which is age appropriate and has child-friendly videos and music.

Furby Connect  is a big hit in our home and I suspect he will keep Sylvia very busy.

We were gifted the Furby from Hasbro. All opinions are my own.

  1. I had a furby when I was a kid and it was fun for a while but got so annoying as you had to hide them in a drawer to get them to stop talking – hopefully they’ve ironed that fault out! Haha

  2. Wow what a change to the original Furby! My children had one and it did become a bit limited, whereas this would keep a child amused for months! I love the digital interaction and the sleep mask is a fab idea

  3. Aww I had a furby when they first ever came out! My goddaughter loves toys that are interactive so this would be great for her xx

  4. Omg we saw these whilst christmas shopping the other day! Cool to hear how it works properly however when I spotted the price tag I almost fainted!!

    1. Yes it is a lot of money for a gift but I think it might be worth it with all the technology advances- it’s more than just a cute toy, it’s an interactive experience.

  5. Furby is fab – I remember when they first came out, and then when they were relaunched a few years ago my son had one. I love that they’ve made them connect to smartphones now!

  6. That sleeping mask is a great idea – I remember the original furby a couple of years ago that kept going and going all the way through our Christmas lunch. There was no way of getting it to shut up and we were close to throwing it out of the window!
