I don't know about the best deal, but they are already on store shelves. I saw them at Target a few days ago...I was shocked that they were I think $50! I figured they be no more than $30.

Edited to add: Maybe it was just a store display that I saw on the shelf...but they had a bunch of boxes I thought. Not really sure since I wasn't purchasing one.

Oh, yes. Those creepy little guys now have LCD screen eyes that move, they even have angry eyes and they light up! They are sure to give any child (or adult) nightmares! LOL!

That's what I thought, too. I checked the date on the thread to see if someone had bumped an old thread.

Smile Furbys

It seems like everything old becomes new again at some point.Didn't think Furbys would be one of them,but asking for a friend.The price seems high to me,but what do I know.She told me that she could only find places to pre-order and some places do not have all the colors ( I don't know how many colors they come in myself ) also she said several places have stopped taking pre-orders too.She's looking for a blue one and a white one.Thanks for all the help.

My kids got them years ago when they were popular. They creeped us all out then! Kids never really enjoyed them, so I packed them both up. Then I started hearing voices! No one believed me. It was driving me crazy. LOL. Turns out the little monsters were yapping in the attic toy chest.

I remember Furby's never shutting up, we would wrap it in a blanket and put it in DD's closet at night so it wouldn't wake her up. I hope the new ones have an on/off switch.

They used to randomly talk...we bought two so they would talk to each other but they never did. I think back in the day they were only $10.00. I found an old McD's Furby toy the other day stuck in with some other ones we were saving!

Those things were annoying. We had a regular one and a mini one and we put them close together because they were supposed to talk to each other and the little one did something to the big one and it went beserk and quit working, it was so funny.

My son saw the commercial and it made his wishlist.

Based on the fact that the presales at Amazon and Walmart sold out, I wouldn't expect to find them on sale right away.

I'm going to go try to find one on Sunday when they come out and I'll hang on to the receipt. If they go on sale somewhere sometime soon, I'll just return the one I find and buy the one on sale. However, if they end up being hard to get, as I suspect they might based on the sold out pre-sales and high ebay presale prices right now, I'll have one safely tucked away for Christmas.

Our Targets have them out now at $54. I saw orange, blue, white, yellow and the pink/purple one. One target had five on the shelf and the other had three.

I was at Target last night and didn't think to look, since they weren't supposed to be out till Sunday. Yes, they are more expensive this time around, but the technology is much greater this time also. They even interact with an iphone app. We thought they were a dumb idea...till we watched the video LOL, then we decided we needed one. I will get one at Target as soon as I find it, since they have a 90 day return policy, and then wait to see if they go on sale closer to the holidays.
