If Teddy Ruxpin and the Wisecracking Alf doll mated, there’s a good chance their offspring would have looked a lot like Furby. These disturbing, owl-gerbil hybrids were the must-have toy when they debuted in 1998. More than 40 million Furbies were sold in their first three years of existence. Who could resist an all-seeing robot that insisted on jokes and songs through a series of burbing “wees,” “doos,” and “loos.” Now Furby is back with Amazon.com, Target, and other retailers calling it one of the hottest holiday toys for 2013. The updated Furby is even more attractive to consumers because of its expressive LCD eyes and the ability to adapt its personality to user behavior. But how does it express “creeped out” in Furbish?
