Furby :: Limited Editions

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.

Other Limited Editions

The Bejewelled Furby was simply Snowball from series 1 adorned with some very expensive jewellery designed by Sydney Mobell. She cost $10,000 and there were only 5 produced. It was sold in an American toy store called FAO Schwarz, but I don't think was part of the official Special Limited Edition Furby's line.
