The Furby Connect is the newest Furby that was released on July 12, 2016.
Furby Connect has new features, such as watching viral videos with Furby via Bluetooth with the Furby Connect World app. They know Kidz Bop versions of modern songs of the time like Cheerleader, One Call Away, and Exes and Ohs. In the app you can also feed it from a machine called the Food Cannon. They retailed for £99.99 (GBP) / $100.00 (USD).
Furby Connects appear very different, compared to the many other Furbys that were released before them. They are now larger, have colorful LCD eyes, and have a different appearance than older models. Furby Connects have circular rings around their eyes, larger ears, and a smaller beak. They also have translucent feet, a tail, and an antennae that glows different colors when you move it.
