Furbys weren't the only things the people at Nissin ripped-off. I think the name of this knockoff is Robot Pet Donbei-kun (ロボットペットどん兵衛くん). I don't know any Japanese, so please correct me if you know I am wrong. Take a look at these two videos! There are some more videos of them on YouTube. Also yes I like fijit friends, but I don't know a lot about them.
