Let's take a closer look
Here we take a closer look at some of Furby Boom's features:
Help to shape Furby Boom's character
Furby Boom has its own character which is shaped by the way it's played with. Furby can also change its personality based on how its treated.
Help Furby Boom to build its vocabulary
It is possible to help Furby Boom to build up its vocabulary by speaking to it lots. The more words spoken to Furby, the more it learns.
Interact with Furby Boom
Children can pet Furby, tickle its tummy and feed it with their finger. When they pull and hold its tail for 10 seconds, it will fall asleep. When there is more than one of them, Furby Boom's interact with each other, so children will love getting together with friends who also have one.
Furby Boom also has more than twice the number of responses than previous generations.
Download the free Furby Boom app for more interaction
A free Furby Boom app can be downloaded to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app contains a lot of content; it allows children to translate Furbish (Furby's own language), care for Furby, play games, collect eggs, hatch them (into your iPad!) and raise virtual Furblings. There is also a virtual currency called Furbucks which can be spent on extras.
