Furby

"The more you play with me, the more I do!"

Furby were produced by Tiger Electronics from 1998 to 2002. They were a line of furry, interactive electronic creatures which looked a bit like owls and were the "must-have toy" of Christmas 1998.
Hasbro re-designed the line in 2005-2007 but without any great success, and then again in 2012.

Buddies

Buddies were smaller 5 " high, non electronic Furby's with a beanbag filling. They were eighteen produced in 1999, made from the same designs as the first three series of adult Furby's, and also came with the same choice of four eye colours.

Each Buddy came with a large label attached to it with a random name chosen from a selection of words. Names found so far include:

  • Happy Joke
