Furby makes a comeback for 2012

Raise your hand if you thought we'd be talking about Furbies again in 2012. Put your hand down, you're obviously lying. Hasbro is rebooting the iconic toy that was the toy of the late '90s, putting a modern spin on an old favorite. 

The 2012 version of the Furby has LCD eyes and will even come with its own app that you can use to feed your pet or even use to translate the "Furbish" your pet speaks. It's fascinating to see Hasbro try to recapture the magic of the Furby from the late '90s, but we doubt the new models will have even a fraction of the success of their older, less advanced brothers.
