Released in 2013, near the end of the development cycle for the Furby (2012).
The Party Rocker can sing and chat with your Furby and its friends, has different voices and personalities for each Party Rocker and is compatible with most features of the app for Android and iOS. Furby Party Rockers launched Feb, 28th 2013 for USD $19.99.
They only speak Furbish. There are four total in Generation 1. Generation 2, which has two, was released later in the same year Generation 1 was released.
It was confirmed as a New Years Day surprise from Hasbro on the official Facebook. They're something like Furbys, yet it's safe to say they're not anything like them. They have "holographic/lenticular" eyes that change and light up as you rock them (similar to that of Mattel's "lenticular eyed" versions of their die-cast Cars vehicles). There is a video and according to the video, they have a lower frequency. When you sing to them, their eyes flash in different ways, possibly because they are small and have no motion.
Although they are called "Furby Party Rockers", many fans believed they were the official babies of Generation 3.0. However, Hasbro trademarked Furby Boom! and Furby Furblings shortly afterwards, confirming that Furblings were in fact the true babies of the newest generation of Furbys: Furby Boom!.
Unlike the other Furbys that were released before and after the Furby Party Rockers they are quite small. Each Furby Party Rocker has a different color of fur, eyes, gender, faceplate shape, and shape of mouth. They all seem to have the same feet besides the different colors. Fussby, Scoffby and Wittby do not have ears but respectively hair, horns, and antennae instead. The Furby Party Rockers with ears (Loveby and Nerdby) have oddly shaped ones and the ears do not look like the ears that many Furbys have. Twittby is the only one in the group to have wings.
List of Party Rockers
- There is a total of four boys and two girls.
- The Party Rockers were copied as Furby fakes as the Phoebe New Series. They were all the same color and design, except Twittby's pupils are bigger and his beak is an orangish-yellow and most models of Fussby's hair is yellow instead of turquoise. There were only four in the set: Scoffby, Fussby, Twittby and Loveby.
- Twittby's prototype features a plain yellow hole in his mouth and no microphone-like lines in it.
- Fussby's prototype featured purple eyelids and thicker eyelashes. Loveby's prototype featured thicker eyelashes as well.
- It is currently unknown who voiced all six Party Rockers.
- Goof in the demo video: During the parts where you meet Twittby and talk to him, he has Wittby's voice (but he and Nerdby were not released after the first wave).
- However, during the translator scene, Twittby has his correct voice.
- Goof in one commercial: Wittby can be heard laughing in one scene, but he is nowhere to be seen.
- Fussby also has Loveby's voice when she laughs in the same scene.
- Goof in another commercial: Nerdby's voice can be heard in two scenes, but he is nowhere to be seen.
- The first wave of Party Rockers resemble some 2012 Furby personalities.
- All Furby Party Rockers (strangely) seem to eat drinks instead of drinking them.
- Because of their size, all Furby Party Rockers have non-functional mouths/beaks.
