Seven years after the release of the Emoto-Tronic Furbys in 2005, another adult Furby model was released. This Furby had multiple personalities, LCD eyes with various eye animations in them, an app to interact with, and a tail that could cause Furby to react when it was pulled.
The Furby Party Rockers were released after the 2012 Furbys and are considered the Babies of this generation.
The Furby Boom was released in 2013 and has the same model type.
This Furby model was released on September 16th, 2012 in USA. Reception had been very positive, with many critics stating it was the best Furby yet.
The 2012 furby has 6 personalities.
- Tough Personality - Male personality. Furby will be easily irritable. This can be unlocked by overfeeding or rough play (shaking)
- Popstar Personality - Female personality. Furby may turn into this personality if it listens to music or uses the app for an extended period of time. Matches the Funky Furby personality.
- Chatterbox Personality - Female personality, somewhat resembles a stereotypical teenage girl. Get this by talking for a long time to Furby.
- Princess Personality - Female personality. Furby will act friendly and sing a lot. This personality resembles the Furby Baby from 2005. Get this by repeatedly petting it or tickling it.
- Crazy Personality - Comedic funny and male personality. Furby will often have laughing fits over almost anything. Get by shaking and pulling it's tail. It will laugh like crazy.
- Default Personality - Ambiguous personality. Loosely resembles 1998 Furby personality, calm and friendly. Only can get it when you put the batteries in for the VERY first time. To get it back, hold it upside down, hold the tongue, then hold the tail for a few seconds. Instead of flashing eyes, it will reboot.
