Item Description:

This Furby electronic toy is a rare Vintage Collector’s item which is almost virtually impossible and difficult to find. This toy is no longer manufactured so you will not find this on any store shelf. Super rare and original! As each day goes by there are less and less of this type of vintage collector pieces - so don't delay in your purchase!

This listing if for one brand new original 1999 Tiger Electronics interactive talking VINTAGE Furby "Kaola Bear" edition toy (model number 70-800) in the color black .

This Furby toy has never been taken out of the original factory carton and the Furby and box are both in MINT condition, except for a small minor aging on top of display box.

I am assuming since this toy is BRAND new, that all instructions papers and the ‘Furbish – English dictionary’ is enclosed in the package as with all new Furbies – but since this has never been opened I cannot verify that fact. The plastic hanging tag is attached to the side of this furby.

I believe this particular Furby was first released in 1999.

When you first pull Furby out of the box, he speaks his own language, Furbish, then he gradually begins speaking English.

Part robot, part animatronic, part fur, and part love, Furby took the toy world by storm. His original production run lasted thru 2000, and sold over 40 million Furbies in 24 languages.

Furby was re-released in 2005 in a run including Emoto-Tronic Furby (Furby, Baby Furby, and Funky Furby). Emoto-Tronic Furby was much larger than the original classic Furby. Furby was once again retired in1997

A Furby is "your emo-tronic friend," according to Hasbro's "Furby Care Guide." The interactive toy has four sensors and a microphone; it responds to having its back rubbed or its tummy tickled, being fed and being tilted from side to side or upside down. It also responds to 10 commands, provided that you speak them exactly as they're written in the manual.

A Furby (plural Furbys or Furbies) was a popular electronic robotic toy resembling a hamster/owl-like creature which went through a period of being a "must-have" toy following its launch in the holiday season of 1998, with continual sales until 2000. Furbies sold 1.8 million units in 1998, 14 million units in 1999, and altogether in its three years of original production, Furbies sold over 40 million units. Its speaking capabilities were translated into 24 languages.

Furbies were the first successful attempt to produce and sell a domestically-aimed robot. A newly purchased Furby starts out speaking entirely Furbish, the unique language that all Furbies use, but are programmed to speak less Furbish as they gradually start using English. English is learned automatically, and no matter what culture they are nurtured in, they learn English.[1] In 2005, new Furbies were released, with voice-recognition and more complex facial movements, and many other changes and improvements. The Emoto-Tronic Furbies (Furby, Furby Baby, and Funky Furby) continued to be sold until late 2007, when these toys became extremely rare.

Furbies originally retailed for about US $35.00 and upon release, Furbies flew off the shelves in toyshops. Catapulting demand for these toys during the 1998 holiday season drove the resale price over $100, and sometimes as high as several hundred dollars. Furbies sold for over $300 in newspapers and in auctions. Nicknames were given to them, and sellers assigned rarity values to them. Some people continue to call their Furbies by the terms 'wedding Furby', 'tuxedo Furby', 'snowball Furby', 'biker Furby', among others. All, of course, were dubbed rare by sellers, because they were so hard to find at the time – and even harder in today’s markets. In a sure display of the demand for the toy, some sellers scammed people out of a great sum of money, without even having first given them a Furby. Parental battles, arguments, and fights increased rapidly as supplies dwindled, and when retail supplies ran out, parents turned to the Internet, where Furbies could be finally once again be purchased.

You are certainly NOT going to find such toys as this on any retail shelf – so grab this amazing toy while you can!

Great vintage collectible gift offering great fun and conversation.

Tiger Electronics is an American toy manufacturer, best known for its handheld LCD games, the Furby, and Giga Pets.

Tiger Electronics has been part of the Hasbro toy company since 1998. Hasbro, previously shy of high-tech toys, was very interested in the development of the cuddly "Furby". With Hasbro's support, Tiger was able to rush through the development process and get the Furby on the shelves for the 1998 holiday season, during which it was a runaway hit -- the "it" toy of the 1998 and 1999 seasons.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to own this wonderful creative Furby. It would be the ultimate present for yourself or that special Furby collector in your life.

Learning to use a Furby is fast and fun, leaving you more time to get to know your electronic pet.

Sensors
Your Furby robotic toy uses five sensors to interpret your interactions with it. The light sensor, located just above Furby's eyes, allows Furby to know whether it is day or night. The front sensor, located on the stomach, lets you make Furby laugh by playfully tickling his tummy. Furby's inside sensor lets him know when he has been picked up or turned upside down. The sensor located on Furby's back allows you to give him affection by rubbing or petting him. The sound sensor, located under Furby's left ear, allows Furby to hear and interpret sounds and commands.

Setup
Before you can play with your Furby you will first have to perform a basic setup. Begin by turning your Furby upside down and installing four AA batteries in Furby's battery compartment. The manufacturer recommends using high-quality alkaline batteries to power your Furby. While Furby is upside down, hold down his tongue switch and press the "Reset" button. This will cause Furby to wake up and tell you his name. Your Furby is ready for play.

Developmental Stages
Your Furby will go through four developmental stages before his programming is complete. When your Furby is new it will speak only its native language of "Furbish." During the first developmental stage, your Furby will be getting to know you and helping teach you how to take care of him. The second and third developmental stages are transition stages where Furby begins to learn English. The fourth developmental stage is Furby's "mature" stage, where he will begin to speak both English and Furbish, as well as follow commands.

Care and Maintenance
Proper care and maintenance will help ensure that your Furby is functioning at its best. Care and maintenance for your Furby includes keeping him clean and dry. If your Furby needs to be cleaned, use a soft cloth dampened with a solution of mild soap and water to clean his fur. Should your Furby be immersed in water, remove the batteries and dry him with a hair dryer before inserting new batteries.

Troubleshooting
If your Furby fails to respond to commands or appears to be malfunctioning, you may need to perform a reset. You can reset your Furby by pressing the "Reset" button or removing the batteries from Furby's battery compartment. After a reset, your Furby will remember his name, as well as all of the tricks you have taught him. If, after performing a reset, your Furby is still malfunctioning, try replacing the batteries in your Furby. If, after replacing the batteries, your Furby still does not function properly, you will have to perform a restart. To restart your Furby, hold him upside down while pressing his mouth switch, then press the "Reset" button. This will restore your Furby's programming to factory settings.
