FURBY, the animated electronic pet that could resonate with kids of today is back with the introduction of the all new, state-of-the-art, FURBY BOOM. Featuring all the ‘magic’ and personality of its predecessor plus twice the content, the new FURBY BOOM raises interactive fun to a whole new level by combining physical and digital play for an entertainment experience unlike any other toy in the market.


Complete with a ‘Mind of its Own’, the FURBY BOOM includes the ability for the girls to hatch digital FURBY babies called FURBLINGs via the all-new app which promises to take fans on a digital adventure using their mobile or tablet device as they raise, care for and play games with their playmate.


The new FURBY BOOM features an enhanced memory function that allows for individual FURBY BOOMs to remember their given name as well as the names of other FURBY BOOM friends, a feature that makes for an even greater intimate and social experience. As with its predecessor, the personality of each FURBY BOOM is shaped by how the girls play and interact with it, with the possibility of evolving into five brand new personalities. Owners can ‘get to know’ their new friend through all-new LCD eye animations that express the ‘emotions’ of one of the new personalities of the FURBY BOOM creature.

Download the free FURBY BOOM app to access a whole new dimension that has been added to this latest version. As owners play with and care for their FURBY BOOM friend they will earn colorful virtual eggs that in time will each hatch and become a FURBY baby called FURBLING, that will ‘live’ and ‘evolve’ within the app. The FURBY BOOM app is downloadable both on App Store and Google Play.



Seriously, I don’t understand why the kids nowadays do not need us to teach them how to play such interactive games. I was searching for the instruction manual and before I know it, Joey has already turned on the FURBY BOOM app and playing along. Totally amazing!

It was quite a difficult task to stop them even for a moment for the ‘old man’ to take some photos.




Successfully hatched a FURBY egg and Joey named it ‘Way Boo’.

Collect over 50 eggs within the FURBY BOOM app and eventually build a FURBY BOOM city.


I can foresee the days ahead will be filled with excitement for both the girls as they watch their FURBLINGs grow up and learn how to tend to its needs. Bringing out that maternity instincts of the little ones.
