Furby Friends - Gizmo
Just like his brother, Furby classic, once you wake him up, that's it. Still he is cute, though...
This is one of the Furby Friends. Aside from their vocabulary and appearance, they are identical to the classic Furby. They don't respond to voice like the later incarnations, but rather to sound, touch, light and movement. Starting out, they speak a 'language' called Furbish for the most part. As they 'mature,' they start speaking English more than their native language. If you take good care of the latest addition to your family, he will reward you with light conversation and games. He will even talk to other classic Furbies through the heart-shaped IR port between his eyes.
Apparently, in the beginning, Warner Brothers filed a lawsuit against Hasbro, claiming that the Furby too closely resembled Gizmo. So it's ironic that Hasbro would come out with a Gizmo Furby... Things that make you go... hmmmmm.
