Furby’s baaaaack and with a vengeance!!! Prior to getting the new Furby Connect to review, I was always curious about him. I mean how could you not, he is so damn cute and looks so lonely on the shelves sitting in that box (shame). When I heard that the new Furby Connect was one of Hasbro’s hot items for the 2016 Holidays, I was intrigued right away. I was sent one to test out and my kids went apeS^&T, in fact he started a huge fight with my kids because both my boys wanted to play with him at the same time (what’s new).
Now for those of you who have had the previous Furby I can happily say that now he now has an off button (well sort of) it’s his sleep mask. Once you put that sleep mask onto Furby he immediately falls asleep. If you are wondering if he wakes up ever with the sleep mask on that is a NO, when that thing is on he is OFF!
We (including me) couldn’t get enough of him. He dances (he moves from side to side and his ears move around as well), he laughs, he farts, he burbs (I mean what more could you want from a toy) and talks to you (he has over 1000 phrases). The most interesting part of all is that you download the Furby Connect app and through Bluetooth your Furby toy and app communicate (FYI you have to pair them first – read the directions when you get it) and while you are playing the game Furby knows what is going on and helps you along the way providing you helpful hints). He has a real time clock causing Furby to react differently at different times of the day.
My kids love that his eyes are full colour digital displays so when he has hearts in his eyes he is happy and when he is hungry and you feed him (you just stick your finger in his mouth) his eyes will show you what he is eating. It really is a blast and your kids will love it.

Dreamwork’s Trolls Glitterific Guy Diamond
After seeing the movie, my kids are Troll obsessed which doesn’t surprise me considering when I was little I collected Trolls and funny enough a year ago (before we even knew about the movie) my mom brought them out for the boys to play with and loved them. Glitterific Guy Diamond is a 14″ poseable figure which is great for those little one’s who have a very active imagination. He is glittery from head to toe, comes with sunglasses and a comb to style his crazy hair. These Trolls have come a long way since my days!
