The Furby Is Back and More Annoying Than Ever

The Furby is coming back. All the rage in 1998, toy maker Hasbro promises the new version of the animatronic furball is even better than before.

This latest Furby edition will be able to communicate with other Furbies and will “learn and change,” just like its predecessors. But it will be softer and more cuddly than it was 14 years ago, and will also benefit from the massive technological advances that have taken place since it first hit the scene. Learn more about the Furby, which will be available in September, below.

The new Furby is set to retail at $60. Like the original, the only way to shut it up is to remove its batteries, which is something many a parent will be tempted to do.

As you can see in the video, the toy interacts with a special iPad app. We suspect this means the new Furby will also be able to have a conversation with Apple’s voice recognition software Siri, which is something the old Furby was comically unable to do.

Come September, we will certainly be on the lookout for videos documenting what happens when the Furby 2.0 is set on fire.
