Remember Furby or in plural, Furbies? Those furry little owl-like electronic toys by Hasbro that were quite a hit back in the late 90’s? Well, they are back and this time with a Boom!

Meet Furby Boom, the next generation of Furby toy gone digital. Unlike its older cousins, which is a similar robotic toy but with less functionality, Furby Boom is much advanced robotic toy that interacts with most iDevices with an App. Furby Boom has A Mind of Its Own and combines physical and digital ways to play! Download an App and you have a whole new generation of Furby Furblings which will hatch and interact with the physical furry toy.

Watch the video and get to know more about Furby Boom. Now, Furby always reminds me of Mogwai, the cute little creature from the movie Gremlins back in the early 80’s. Although Furby Boom has been launched for more than a year now, it’s still a rare toy here in Malaysia.
