Furby Boom is ready to bring joy for Xmas!
Many of my friends asked me, what’s for Xmas? If you want the same old boring gadgets, don’t ask me because I got myself a Furby Boom!
The all new and improved Furby Boom, which has already the made it to the top of the list in the US and UK’s Christmas wish list, is now here, on Malaysian shelves, all stocked up and ready for the year end rush.
UK’s top newspapers are already anticipating a flurry for the Furby. The Furby is no stranger to the Christmas’ hottest wishlists, having made its debut as “the” Christmas craze of 1998 having grabbed headlines for inciting parental arguments, auctions and online bidding wars.
The new toy by Hasbro Toy Malaysia (Hasbro) is a little pet with a “mind of its own.” Just like a real pet, you can feed, it, shower it, or even take it to the bathroom. The new Furby Boom is all the magic and personality of its 2012 predecessor plus twice the content.
The new Furby Boom blurs the line between physical and digital play for a unique educational experience. It can even hatch virtual Furbling friends in the form of colorful eggs so that children can have more friends and more friends to play with. Furby Boom owners and their Furby Boom can then feed, play and interact with the virtual Furblings which are hatched. The Furblings can speak both English and Furbish.
The free mobile Furby Boom app enables owners to personalize, interact with, and nurture their new furry friend. An interactive dashboard on a mobile device allows you to monitor the well-being of your Furuby including its happiness, hunger, and cleanliness levels. Each app can monitor wellness levels for multiple pets at any one time.
For instance, if the dashboard indicates that it is time for a cleaning, users can access the app’s shower feature and watch as your Furby Boom physically react to the ‘temperature’ of the water, The new Furby Boom also features an enhanced memory function that will allow it to remember all 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(s) through the all-new LCD eye animations that express the ‘emotions’ of the Furby Boom.
Boredom is not an option with Furby Boom, as owners can choose from a multitude physical and digital activities. Play “Furball”, a soccer style game, or collect over 50 eggs to build a Furby Boom city. The choices are virtually endless.
Commenting further on the newly launch of the Furby Boom, Foo said, “The new Furby Boom functions on its own and it is fun to play with, even without the app. However, with the available app, we create games where Furby Boom fans and owners can experience real reactions in a character as they embark on a digital adventure together. Everything that you do with the new Furby Boom in the real world, affects its virtual world and vice versa. The new Furby Boom will even remember its own name and the names of other FURBY it meets!”
Available in six fashion-forward designs, the new FURBY BOOM is available in waves, stripes and zigzag designs.
The new Furby Boom is available at most major toy retail outlets nationwide and major departmental stores at RM269.90. It requires four (4) “AA” batteries that are not included. To download the app, please visit the App Store or Google Play.
