14 years ago the original Furby was the hottest holiday toy. 2012 marks the return of the Furby toy. Will it be the hottest holiday toy of 2012? Furby supply was already low, but since the weekend we see solid supply at Walmart, Target, Amazon and ToysRUs.
2012 Furby is in Stock at Major Retailers Right Now
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, KmartandToysRUsshow 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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
