This just in from yahoo news, I think that those of you in New York will be pleased to hear it :) Proud Furby Parents Show Off Newest Members of the Furby Family! WHAT: Be the first to meet the Furby Babies! Furby Babies are cute, petite versions of Furby with their own baby-like colors and personalities. Like their "parents", Furby Babies are animatronic plush pets that are able to interact with the environment. Furby Babies have moving eyes, ears and mouths. Furby Babies will be able to communicate and interact with other Furby Babies and grown-up Furbys through the use of infrared technology and will also speak Furbish and English. In fact, Furby Babies will even "learn" to speak English faster and have their very own baby Furbish-English phrases and words . Furby Babies are available in six new fur patterns: pink/white/blue, blue/white/pink, peach/white, mint green/white, yellow/orange and solid white. Each of these fur patterns are available in four different eye colors: blue, green, gray and brown. Furby Babies will have lifelike baby responses like going to sleep right after eating, always wanting to play, needing to be burped after a feeding, rocked to sleep and more! Suggested retail: $29.99.
