A Furby is a fuzzy electronic toy that was a popular holiday item during its original release year. The Furby is a mechanical robot that can move, talk and respond to touch on certain areas of its body. It also has a sensor between its eyes that allows it to see changes in light and communicate with other Furbies within its range. Over time, the Furby may lose its ability to talk and move and require a battery change or reset.
