    Who remembers when the Furbies were a hot product? Well, I have some news for you, Hasbro has decided to bring back Furby - with a new line of products.

    I'm not sure how many are coming out, but here are some pictures.(source: http://www.buzzfeed.com/whitneyjefferson/an-exclusive-first-look-at-the-new-furby
    )

    What does everyone think? Will you be buying a furby this time? Either for yourself, a niece, or a family member?

    This excites me!
    Hah I remember when I was little, I wanted one sooo bad, my parents wouldn't buy me one (I was like..8 i think), My friend had one, and let me "babysit" it over night, It wouldn't shut up, so I fed it milk out of my baby brothers bottle, and I broke it >.> My parents had to go out, and buy the same one to give back to her.

    Oh, these things are freaky.

    Didn't they learn the first time around with these little monsters?

    They look weird and even though my old furbies drove my crazy (did they have an off switch? I could never turn them off)... I'll probably buy one for nostalgia's sake.

    I had a grey one for over 10 years. Took the batteries out and destroyed the inside so no more could be put in and it still talked. *shivers*

    I love reading your stories they always make me smile :D (like the one about the dial-up)

    I had a red and orange one, called it Crash (Crash Bandicoot) and I thought it was the most awesome thing ever cause you could teach it to say new words, and ours (cause my sister used to play with it too) used to say "Crash, Coco" like from the game.

    Had it not started swearing I would still have it.

    When did you start saying this? Personally, I can see why they're coming back. Furby was a huge craze a few years ago. I wonder if they'll tie into an online-gaming experience. Like how Webkinz does it.

    That would actually get me to buy it. :) I love Webkinz and I collect all their stuffed animals since it involves gaming.
