One of the Hottest Toys this Holiday Season -- The Furby Connect #giftguide #playlikehasbro

Have your kids written their letters to Santa? Checked their lists twice? Chances are, some little boys and girls might have a Furby Connect on their list. It's one of the hottest toys on the market this holiday season. And I totally know why. 


Ok -- so, full disclosure -- prior to this review, the Furby kind of freaked me out. Is it an owl...a gremlin? But when my friends at Hasbro suggested I give the new Furby Connect a shot, I couldn't refuse.
Furby Connect is soft and cuddly and actually quite endearing. When you power him/her on, Furby speaks its own language but also dances, moves, lights up and allows you to put your finger in its mouth to feed. What's extra cool about this new Furby is its technological power. Press on Furby's antenna to connect to the Furby App which is an entire land of virtual fun.
You start by naming your Furby and then you can play with the video game while simultaneously handling the stuffed creature. Hatch baby Furblings and guide them through various activities to make them grow and give them power.

The suggested age for Furby Connect is 6+ yet I had to pry my phone and Furby out of my 4 year old (and 2 year olds!) hands. Seriously. If you are giving Furby Connect to a child younger than 6, know that you'll have to read the instructions on the app in order for them to play. Not a big deal. 
Isabelle had a blast pulling Furby out of the box and playing with her. (Our Furby is a girl, naturally) 
Check out our little video!

Warning: Furby does talk a lot and make some strange noises (they speak their own Furbish language), so parents will be happy to know that Furby goes to sleep really quickly when you put its sleep mask on. Don't. Lose. the. Sleep. Mask. 
All kidding aside, Furby is funny and quite smart. Donny and I were totally impressed and that doesn't happen with too many toys these days. The connectivity feature is a real selling point for me -- this toy is totally different from anything I had as a kid!
I've heard through the grapevine that it may be tough to find Furby Connect -- although you can check most big box toy stores; it may be a hunt. A worthwhile hunt! :) 
Lucky for Simply Suppa readers, I have one to give away! I know! So Furbylicious!!
