Furbies Suck!

 Ok so "Santa" brought each of my kiddos a furby, so far we have taken my son's back twice and now my daugher's and my son's have stopped working! It's not the batteries or and we tried resetting them, they just stop working after about 24 hours of use. When I took the first one back the lady said it was her 3rd in 1 hour, when I took the 2nd one back the lady said they have over 20 returned! I think I'm just getting the money back and letting them pick something else, because these things are 50 dollar paperweights.

My girls are loving theirs. They feed them from the iPad app, and tuck them into their beds at night. One of the girls loves singing to hers because it dances and goes crazy.

My dd and ds both got Fijit Friends. They started last year and the house is overrun with fijits! They even made a fijit castle! Too cute!! They are a great toy!

I am sorry to hear that.  We have that problem with the Orbeez Ladybug.
