New Furby Boom For Christmas!
The Newest in a long line of Furby’s has arrived in the shape of Furby BOOM! I have never had the pleasure until now as we have boys and Furby wasn’t the toy of choice – Sorry Hasbro but it never got a look in against things such as NERF and strangely Christmas wrapping paper..
Anyway, this New Furby BOOM which is due for release September 15th 2013 at a retail price of $105.99 and will be available in all good toy stores.
It comes with a raft of new features which includes (and is not limited too. You’ll have to read the PR!):
- There’s an iPad app that helps Furby BOOM crossover from reality into the digital world.
- Furby BOOM can have a baby! – This is really big news apparently.
- You have the ability to name your Furby.
- It remembers it’s other Furby friends names.
- It lays virtual eggs
- You can shower it within the App – This is pretty cool.. Or hot depending on the temperature!
Aside from these the sayings are as follows:
- Awesome Sauce!
- Soooo Hungry

Here’s what Hasbro has to say:
(HASBRO/Ages 6 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $105.99/Available: Sept 15, 2013)
A global sensation following its 1998 debut and one of Holiday 2012’s hottest playthings, the FURBY brand has solidified its place in pop culture history. In September 2013, the creature with a ‘MIND OF ITS OWN’ will once again revolutionise digitally-integrated play and surprise and delight fans of all ages with the introduction of the state-of-the-art FURBY BOOM A4342 Furby Boom Sweet (A4337)creature. Featuring all the ‘magic’ and personality of its predecessor plus twice the content, the new FURBY BOOM creature combines physical and digital play for a fun type of entertainment experience including the ability to hatch digital FURBLING friends. The FURBY BOOM creature takes kids on a digital adventure via their mobile device as they raise, care for and play games with their playmate.
As owners play with and care for their FURBY BOOM friend they will earn colorful virtual eggs that in time will each hatch and become a FURBLING virtual friend. Both owners and FURBY BOOM can feed, play, and interact with the virtual FURBLING creatures who speak both English and FURBISH. Most game play incorporates both physical and digital activity such as “Furball,” a soccer style game where the FURBY BOOM creature and the FURBLING virtual friend ‘kick’ a soccer ball back and forth on an onscreen ‘field.’ Fans will be able to collect over 50 eggs within the FURBY BOOM app by and eventually build a FURBY BOOM city. Eggs can be earned through game play within the app, exchanges among other FURBY BOOM owners, and a few surprises to be announced later in the year that will utilize QR codes. Through game play, FURBY BOOM owners can also earn FURBUCKS virtual currency which can be used to enhance their FURBY BOOM city.
Using the new, free FURBY BOOM app owners can personalize, interact with, and care for their new furry friend. An interactive dashboard feature monitors the well being of your FURBY BOOM creature including its happiness, hunger, and cleanliness levels. Each app can monitor wellness levels for multiple creatures at one time! As owners engage with the app, their FURBY BOOM friend will react. If the dashboard indicates that it’s time for a cleaning, users can access the app’s shower feature and watch as FURBY BOOM physically reacts to the ‘temperature’ of the water! The FURBY BOOM creature also features an enhanced memory function that will allow it to remember the other FURBY BOOM friends it encounters. The personality of each FURBY BOOM is shaped by how you play with it, with the possibility of five brand new personalities to evolve. Owners can ‘get to know’ their new friend through all new LCD eye animations that express the ‘emotions’ of one of the new personalities of the FURBY BOOM creature.
At launch FURBY BOOM will be available in six fashion forward pattern combinations including waves, stripes and zigzag designs. Four additional patterns will be available later in the year. The free FURBY BOOM app will be available for download at the App Store and Google Play. The FURBY BOOM app is not required for FURBY BOOM play. FURBY BOOM requires four “AA” batteries, not included. FURBY BOOM is available at most major toy retailers nationwide.
So there you have it folks, the Furby BOOM revolution is a coming.
Download the Furby App here and it will be in all good toy retailers in September.
