I didn't like it as much as I thought I was going to but I hid this well I think
my mam traipsed round everywhere to get me one
I could cry just thinking about it :((
I loved it. I still have it somewhere, he's rather worn out and a bit battered.
it's eyes rolled back though, so it was really creepy. i can remember lying in bed at night, the light streaming through my window from the lampost onto the horrible creature, sitting there with it's eyes rolled back, saying COCO.
I think anyway, it used to say WAIL O COCO WAIL O COCO
I didnt have a clue what it what chuntering on about half the time
but every bloody ones first words were COCO.
that's all mine said too, it wouldn't learn any of my words.
I feel cheated
this is jip!
I might attempt to take mine back
still got the box in the cupboard
but it died/ran out of battery so was resigned to my wardrobe. However a few months later I heard a strange noise from the wardrobe and the Furby had come back to life, how I don't know - I was petrified.
ZOMBIE FURBIES! Horrific concept. Them coming out of the wardrobe and trying to peck at you with their blunt plastic beaks.
I can't stop laughing.
that was part of the settlement when the gremlins people sued them, also got the yoda one but got sick of his constant criticism, never had an original furby though
but i don't remember what they were...
But we never got one. A friend got one and when I was at their house, I realised how shit it was and was glad I never got one.
Funny old world.
I felt as crap as one of the kids with adidas trousers with only 2 stripes down the side...so close to cool yet SO SO far.
I either left it outside overnight at a friends house and the morning dew got it, or I dropped it in a swimming pool. Can't remember which, either way it was very traumatic.
The closest I got to having a Furby was the free plushy ones you got with a McDonalds happy meal...
they were wrong
my mam got me some cheap furby socks off the market with unofficial furbys on them -blue furbys!- and she said on christmas eve that was the closest I was going to get to getting one.
but then I actually got one
preferred the socks
I think it's crammed somewhere in my closet at home...sometimes when I clean my closet I hear a random noise from the Furby, but I swear it died ages ago...
but one lad claimed he taught his to swear, and we were all like 'haha you fag, you have furby'
this liar in my street who nobody liked was like 'mine can say arse' but every time we asked him to show us it it was CONVENIENTLY left as his nanas
I always wanted a Keyper or a Boglin. RETRO.
...just me then.
