It seems like there are a few toys every Black Friday that are considered the top gifts for Christmas. This year, one of the most popular toy items is the Furby. This isn’t the first time the Furby has been at the top of Christmas lists. When it first hit the shelves in 1998, there were 1.8 million Furbys sold. In 1999 that number rose to 14 million.
The Furby was so popular in the late 90’s that many people got into fights at stores while trying to get one before Christmas. But after a short reign, the Furby of the 90’s seemed to fall into the shadows. This year, it’s back and it is just as popular as ever. The new Furby got a makeover and learned to do more tricks.
The 2013 Furby Boom is available in a variety of colors and patterns and can play games, speak over 20 languages and learn new words based on how the child plays with it. The big question on every parent’s mind this shopping season is where can I get one cheap? With Black Friday only days away, several stores are offering the Furby at a special low price.
The Furby Boom is available for $29 in Walmart’s Black Friday sale and it comes with the one hour in stock guarantee. That means as long as you are in line for the Furby Boom within an hour of the sale, you will get it for the same price and before Christmas if they run out of stock on Black Friday. Toy R Us is also offering the Furby Boom for $29 on Black Friday. You can’t beat these prices on the cute little critters.
