The Furby toy is coming back in a big way this Holiday season. It is on the front page of all major Holiday toy catalogs including the Walmart Top 20 Toy List for the 2012 Holiday shopping season. I had the original Furby and it was really fun back then. The new 2012 Furby is a major upgrade. The biggest change are the LCD eyes that can display animations. Other improvements include speaks english besides furbish, develops unique personality, 6x more phrases, detects beats and dances to your music and you need to care for it like a tamagotchi. The new Furby also can interact with your iPhone and iPad via the Furby App.
The 2012 Furby has a $54 price tag. Over the last couple weeks I have seen spotty supply and prices already above $70. Since the weekend though Walmart , Amazon , Target , Kmart and ToysRUs show solid supply of the Furby in all colors at the standard $54 price.
The question is how long this situation lasts. I am expecting to see Furby Black Friday deals , but it is really hard to predict at which prices and how the supply will look like in 3 weeks. I suggest to secure some Furby's at the $54 price now.
