- Parents’ guide created for Furby Connect
- Furbish dictionary available for owners to brush up on the lingo
Milton Keynes, UK, 2016-Dec-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Still going strong after almost a decade in the toy business, the latest Furby – Furby Connect – is the cleverest one yet. Lauded by many as one of the top toys for this Christmas, there may be a little reluctance to invite one into the home, after Furbies of Christmas past wreaked havoc with constant mutterings and an inability to ever stop! But with continued popularity amongst children and a sure fire Christmas wish list hit, the UK’s biggest toy retailer has created some essential downloads to help parents get to grips with the furry critters!
Aimed at helping parents become accustomed with their new Furby Connected friend, Argos’ “Parents’ Guide” is packed full of handy and practical tips to get the very most out of this incredibly interactive plaything – even before Santa has made his delivery. Plus, there’s also an easy-to-understand-Furbish dictionary so parents can wow their kids with their fluency on Christmas Day.
The new Furby Connect is a sensor-laden toy that interacts with its owner through sounds and movement, as well as over 100 different LED-powered eye expressions. When connected via Bluetooth, the Furby World app offers an entirely new play pattern as the physical toy interacts with the on-screen Furblings. Inside this constantly updated and expanding app-driven world is a huge variety of content including games and videos.
Argos’ Furby Connect Parents Survival Guide and Furbish Dictionary are both available to download now, free of charge.
Available in purple, blue, orange, teal and pink, Furby Connect is available in Argos stores and at www.argos.co.uk for £79.99 (price correct at time of issue).
