If you think the latest FURBY is cool, you should look at the coming FURBY BOOM series which allow you to have more interactive activities using your Apple or Android devices.
The FURBY BOOM includes the ability for owners to hatch digital FURBY babies called FURBLINGs via the all-new app which promises to take fans on a digital adventure using their mobile or tablet device as they raise, care for and play games with their playmate.
For most of the interaction like giving your Furby his first name, feeding, bathing and bring him to the toilet it is all done on the Apps on your devices.
Each Furby as his own personality depending how the owner plays and interacts with it. There are total of five brand new personalities. Owners can ‘get to know’ their new friend through all-new LCD eye animations that express the ‘emotions’ of one of the new personalities of the FURBY BOOM creature.
As owners play with and care for their FURBY BOOM friend they will earn colorful virtual eggs that in time will each hatch and become a FURBY baby called ‘FURBLING’, that will ‘live’ and ‘evolve’ within the app. Using the app, both owners and FURBY BOOM can feed, play, and interact with the virtual FURBLING who speaks both English and FURBISH.
Fans will be able to collect over 50 eggs within the FURBY BOOM app and eventually build a FURBY BOOM city. Eggs can be earned through game play within the app, exchanges among other FURBY BOOM owners, and a few surprises to be announced later in the year that will utilize QR codes. Through game play, FURBY BOOM owners can also earn FURBUCKS virtual currency which can be used to enhance their FURBY BOOM city.
