You’ve been thinking about getting a Furby for a while but you are kind of apprehensive because you aren’t sure how much work is involved in getting Furby up and running. You also wonder if you will be able to communicate with it and vice versa. If this is you then you are in luck, Furby is very easy to activate out of the box and soon after you will be interacting with it in no time, no Furby instructions even needed.
Out of the Box
Furby comes in an interesting shaped box, almost a hexagram without the extra two corners. Once you purchase your furry friend all you really need to get started is a small Philips screwdriver and 4 AA batteries. After you open the box the base is attached to cardboard, you can avoid having to tear the box by removing the screws right there. Once you remove the screws you can put the batteries in right away, screw it back up and you are ready to go. Furby will start talking right away, it may take a little while for him to come out of his slumber.
Furby at Home
The more you talk to Furby the faster he will learn to speak English. I recommend downloading the Free Furby App so you can use the translator to understand what Furby is saying. When you’re not playing Furby I recommend putting it in a cabinet or chest, somewhere you won’t unintentionally bump into it. If you do bump it to it, then it will start talking and you might not have time for that. When that happens I just ignore him or put in a cupboard and he stops talking pretty quick. When travelling it’s a good idea to remove the batteries all together so you can still have Furby out but not disturb others. Unfortunately not everyone is going to be crazy about hearing your new friend.
