    A Former Victim Of The So-called "furby"

    Like most kids about a decade ago I desperately wanted a Furby. I think I got mine on Christmas. I was delighted when I finally got one, it was a pink baby Furby with a tuft of yellow fuzz on it's head. It wasn't long before I tired of Furby. That thing would just not shut up...

    Didn't Own One But Have Bought One

    They were out when my niece was young. It ending up scaring her so it got tossed or at least I think it did. She was like 3 when I got it for her. It was a cute koala colored one but its brown eyes kind of had a red tint which was the issue that created the fear of it. It also...

    I Had A Few...

    They were cute and sorta scary. I gave one to my cat to chew up and knock around. The cat ripped its eyes out. Now that was scary! I know I've still got a furby around here somewhere. I think its purple. Or maybe blue.

    I Still Have Mine!

    Okay, those were incredibly ugly and obnoxious toys. I remember one year we all got them for Christmas. A great gift for a family that had 15 kids at the time! And they all "learned" to interact with each other, sometimes in the middle of the night.

    Ewwwww

    I remember furbies and I really wish I didn't. They are the ideal clown pet.  Creepy, furry, & big-eyed, with a high-pitched voice that sends shivers down the spines of millions.

    Remember Them?

    .... I still have one.  He was in my office for a very long time and recently I have cleaned it out and gave most the stuff I way.  I had several furbies so I am not sure what happened to the others but I loved these when they first came out.

    The Tale of the Neglected Furbie

    Furbies came out when I was still pretty young, so my poor mother was one of those clammering to get one at Christmas. He was black and, I'll be honest, I don't remember what I named him. Something that wasn't very creative, I'm sure, like Chocolate or Midnight. I loved him...

    Cute?

    I had two furbies. The first one I got had the same colourings as my first cat - orange and white. I ended up getting another one so they could play - this one was rainbow. I honestly didn't play with them much at all. They weren't very entertaining for me, just frustrating. At...
