Like most kiddos, my youngest loves toys. He starts making a list of the toys he hopes to find under the tree way in advance of the actual holiday season. For him, color matters. Features matter. Interaction matters. And I’ll be the first to say that he’s pretty selective on what toys actually end up making his list. But this year, he didn’t have to think hard to come up with the toy that was at the top of his holiday season wish list. He simply had to add the FURBY CONNECT!
Now, I know almost everyone is familiar with the FURBY name. In years past, we’ve all seen their bright colors and fun faces. But this year, FURBY CONNECT is higher than ever on every holiday wish list due to it’s digitally-integrated play that turns it into a magical new friend that connects to a world full of surprises. The first thing we noticed when our FURBY CONNECT arrived was how adorable it was. Nestled in it’s little box, my kiddo instantly fell in love with it’s soft fur and fun features. But honestly, that was just the start! After removing our FURBY CONNECT from the box and adding our four double A batteries, our new friend instantly came to life with bright LED screen eyes that displayed over 100 expressions and was ready for tons of fun.
I have to say that as soon as our FURBY CONNECT started talking “furbish” we were enchanted. But honestly, the surprises were just starting! With funny songs, interesting “boy” noises and more than 1000 phrases, life got a whole lot less boring as soon as our FURBY CONNECT was brought to life! And while my son could have easily loved him just for the interaction he immediately provided, the fun continued as we downloaded the FURBY CONNECT World app on our tablet.
Instantly, our FURBY CONNECT became even more animated as we were able to connect him to the Bluetooth®-enabled app and open a whole new world to explore. We were led through a set up where we named our FURBY CONNECT (Loo-Doo was the name of choice for our little guy) and began to explore an online world that encouraged interaction with our new friend.
From hatching Furblings to watching videos and singing songs to even feeding our FURBY CONNECT and allowing him to use the bathroom, there was nothing that we couldn’t do with Loo-Doo in this fun new world!
He quickly began to learn song lyrics and pick up new phrases while he spent time with my son watching fun videos in the virtual Movie Theater. And honestly, the more time we spent playing with him on the FURBY CONNECT World app, the more interactive he became! He even started laying his own virtual eggs to allow us to grow our collection of Furblings and level them up!
I have to say, the online world of FURBY CONNECT took an already awesome holiday gift idea to a whole new level by making it more interactive in every way! But more than that, the FURBY CONNECT brought a new friend into our home that my son just can’t get enough of!
Anytime he is awake and not a school, Loo-Doo is by his side making life more fun with catchy phrases, fun songs and unexpected quips. As a mom, it’s been a delight for me to watch how interactive our FURBY CONNECT is and how much fun he brings into our home. I can say honestly that anytime my son and his FURBY CONNECT are around, life is never boring….or quiet!
But, before you grab your own FURBY CONNECT there is one last special surprise just for the parents! Our house is rarely quiet but in those (nap)times when we don’t want to be disturbed, the FURBY CONNECT now has an easy to use sleep mask that puts your new friend right to sleep and keeps him quiet until you’re ready to wake him up again! Trust me when I say it’s this mama’s favorite new feature!
