Every since my Little One was six years old and discovered the world of Furby, it has been and remained one of her favorite toys. My Little One has collected numerous Furby Booms, as well as the smaller Furblings over the years, all of which are displayed proudly in a special spot in her bedroom. She often gets them and plays with them, taking care of their Furby needs and growing their world with the hatching of new virtual Furbies.
So when my Little One caught wind that there was a new Furby in town, she was excited beyond words. The newest Furby is called Furby Connect.
Here is a video of the new Furby Connect in action….
With Furby Connect, you can connect your Furby to the app for fun play time…
Connect to a virtual world of surprises with the Furby Connect World app!
FURBY CONNECT WORLD

With your Furby Connect toy (sold separately), in the app you can also…

NOTE: The Furby Connect World app is only compatible with the Furby Connect toy (sold separately) and is not compatible with prior apps or other Furby toys. You will need to enable Bluetooth on your device to connect the toy to the app.
Please make sure to check the list of compatible devices.
Furby Connect will also react to physical play. Kids can pull Furby’s ear, pet Furby, tickle Furby, play with the Furby antenna (joystick), and more to make the Furby Connect react. Furby Connect will also chat with another Furby Connect if you have more than one.
Furby Connect comes in Coral, Teal, Blue, Pink, and Purple. We have the pink Furby Connect of course with how much my Little One loves pink. I think that teal will be next on her list, but we are hoping that Furby Connect comes in cool color patterns like the Furby Booms do.

Here are things we love that are new with the new Furby Connect:
*The new Furby Connect has a more reliable connection to the app through the Bluetooth connection.
*The colorful eyes on Furby Connect are awesome and a great upgrade.
*I love that you can put Furby Connect to sleep with the included sleep mask. For the older Furbies, you had to wait for them to fall asleep, which could take some time, especially if you had a couple of Furbies that were talking to each other.
*I like how the antenna glows when there is something new in the app. That is pretty awesome and gets kids excited to see what is new.
There is quite a bit that I could go on about with Furby Connect, but I think that the above really starts to give you a picture of all that Furby Connect can do.
Furby Connect is recommended for ages 6 and older and I agree with this recommendation. My Little One received her first Furby at 6 years old and Furby has remained an important and used toy for 3 years now. The excitement for Furby has not work off for my Little One. She doesn’t play with them every day, but she does go and get them and still plays with them.
I can see Furby Connect being a hot item again this holiday season. I have noticed that they appear to be hard for stores to keep them on their shelves lately.
If you are looking for Furby Connect, you can find them at your local toy retailer.
I recommend checking out Furby Connect. We love Furby and it has been a toy that has maintained my Little One’s interest for years.
