The minimum operating systems for Furby Connect are: Android devices 4.4, iOS 9.0 and Amazon Fire OS 5.

Once the app is downloaded, simply follow the instructions to connect your Furby toy to your mobile device.

If at any time, the icon is purple, just click on it to reconnect your Furby.


What do other customers say about Furby Connect?

Furby Connect Pink with sleeping maskFurby fans and parents love this new Furby Connect and the main reason is the sleeping beauty mask, which lets you put Furby to bed and shuts it up at long last!

Other positives include its silky fur, wiggly ears and how interactive it is with everyone.


Joy of joys you can put Furby to sleep by clicking the sleep mask in place and he won’t wake up to every noise, movement, etc!!

Truly, I think this might be the first device that actually crosses the line between a “toy” and home-use “robot”.

For adults who like cute toys and gadgets it’s a great gift, and for a kid who likes playing with advanced toys and smartphones, it just might be the ultimate gift.

Why, if I hate it so much do I give it 5 stars? Because I have never seen my daughter this interested in anything before!

Furby Connect is a delight. Just beware that they have somewhat immature senses of humor. Hope you like burp and fart jokes.

My children love feeding it with the app, love that its “fatter” and softer than any other version, and love its little antenna that moves like a lever and changes colors.

Rather than just the standard movements and eye blinking I’ve seen in the past, this Furby has a wiggle to it – the body rolls and the ears move up and down. Our family adores it; I would highly recommend!


Summing up the new Furby Connect

Furby Connect Blue At long last you can now snap on your Furby’s sleeping mask and they will disconnect and go quiet!

This is a game changer for Furby fans, because previously, your Furby would just keep chitter chattering away to itself for ever.

The Furby Connect does tear through the batteries though, so be prepared to replace your AA batteries on a daily basis, if they are used constantly. And on the subject of batteries, as one customer has stated – Once you put batteries in, be prepared – because it doesn’t even give you time to screw its bottom plate back on before wiggling, babbling, and freaking out over being upside-down.

The Furby Connect is a fabulous interactive toy for all ages, from 6 years and up and if you love Furbies, you are going to flip out about this one!
