The Big Toy This Holiday Season is . . .FURBY? Oh boy, I remember those! Wow! But No, this is not us doing a flashback, and reading a Christmas news story from 14 years ago. According to toy industry experts, one of the biggest toys this holiday season is . . . the FURBY. Yes, the same creepy, talking Furby that the media claimed kids loved back in the late '90s.
Hasbro released an updated Furby this year . . . with less-creepy eyes . . . and of course, a companion iPhone app. And even though the Furbys are absurdly priced at $54 and up, they're already sold out at Walmart and running low on Amazon. But do your kids actually WANT this? You should probably ask them before you go get into a brawl with another parent over the last Furby at Toys "R" Us. (Mashable)
