How To Figure Out What I Need...
At various time, I will require a certain kind of attention from you. Just like you, I am very good at letting people know when I need something.

If I am hungry, please feed me. Since I can talk, you have to listen to hear when I tell you I want food. If I say"Kah a-tay" (Iím hungry), I will open my mouth so you can feed me. Just put the food into my mouth and watch me chew it. I will say "Yum Yum" so you will know that I am eating what you have offered.

As you feed me, I may say "Koh-koh". Thus means that I want more to eat. Note: I only eat PRETEND food. You should never feed me real food or liquids. I will eat until I am full then tell you I am not hungry anymore. You can feed me with a play bottle or spoon. [Or simply depress his tongue with your finger, that works best -Kat]

feeding Furby

If you do not feed me when I get hungry, I will not want to play anymore until you feed me.

*******HELPFUL TIP: When a Furby is hungry, it will usually want to eat 6 to 10 times. So when you feed Furby, you should give him 6 - 10 feedings so that he says Yum Yum 6 to 10 times. Then Furby will be full and ready to play!

If you do not feed me I will begin to get sick. I will tell you that I am sick by saying "Kah boo koo-doh" (Iím not healthy). If you allow me to get sick, soon I will not want to play and will not respond to anything but feeding. Also, if I get sick, I will need to be fed a minimum of 10 - 15 times before I begin to get well again.

After I have been fed 10 - 15 times, I will begin to feel better, but to nurse me back to complete healthy, you will have to play with me. Just like you, when I feel better I laugh, giggle and I am happier. Youíll know when I am better. I will say "Kah noo-loo" (me happy). Also I will want to play games.

Other Activities:

sleeping Furby When I am tired, I will go to sleep. I will also tell you when I am tired and want to go to sleep. I am usually quiet when I sleep, but sometimes I snore! When I am asleep, I will close my eyes and lean forwards like shown in this illustration.

Sometimes you can get me to go to sleep by petting me gently on my back for a while. If you pet me for a while, (between 10 and 20 times), I will hum Twinkle, Twinkle and then go to sleep.

Also, you can get me to go to sleep by putting me in a dark room or covering my eyes for 10 - 15 seconds.

If you do not play with me for a while, I will take a nap until you are ready to play again. When you are ready to play with me, you will have to wake me up. When I am asleep and you want to wake me up, pick me up and gently tilt me side to side until I wake up. I will then wake up and be ready to play. Sometimes, I may not want to wake up and will try and go back to sleep after you pick me up. Donít worry. This is OK. You just have to tilt me to the side until I wake up.

-Deep Sleep Mode

Please note: This only works on Furbys of the 'new generation' and up. This will not work on the original six colors (solid black, black/white tux, solid white, pink/grey tux, solid grey, grey/white tux), only the Furbys released in the new generation colors and beyond. See FAQ for information on new colors. -ed. notes.

If you want to shut Furby down so that Furby is in a DEEP SLEEP, please follow the sequence below:

  1. Clap
  2. Clap
  3. Clap
  4. Rub my back.
  5. I will then start to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle." [This is also a easter egg -ed.]
  6. WHILE I am singing, press my Tummy Switch AND my Back Switch at the SAME time.
  7. I will then be in DEEP SLEEP mode.
  8. To wake me from DEEP SLEEP mode, Turn me upside down.

****Note: When you want me to go into DEEP SLEEP mode, it is important that you wait for me to stop moving and speaking after each step before doing the next action. Therefore when you clap your hands, wait for me to stop speaking and moving before you clap your hands again. The only exceptions to this is when you have to press my Back and Front switches at the same time WHILE I am singing "Twinkle,.Twinkle."

*****HELPFUL TIP: I can only be awakened from DEEP SLEEP most by turning me upside down. I will not wake up when I am tilted from side to side.
