 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.

ouch, are these the "new" furbies? I got one when I was 8/9yrs old and it STILL works(I'm 23). Sorry you and others are having such an issue with them :-/ that sucks. I would return it for good and get something else at that rate.

 That's the craziest part to me, I still have an original that works, lol. We just took the new ones back and got a refund and the lady at the return desk said they had a pile of them to send back.
