NEW FURBY FAMILY ARRIVES AT
FAO SCHWARZ: RETIREMENT PARTY FOR ORIGINAL FURBY COLORS
Original Furby color collection retires to make way for new Furby fur patterns
WHAT: Be the first to see the new Furby fur collection!
Furby, the cuddly, animatronic pet is dressed for success in 1999! Tiger Electronics will be introducing 6 new fur patterns for Furby: Giraffe, Owl, Snow Leopard, Dalmatian, Bear, and of course, Tiger! Kids of all ages will be able to add to their Furby collections with these exciting new fur patterns. Each of these patterns has all the great play of the original Furby, but with the addition of an exciting new feature: a "deep sleep" mode where kids can put their Furby to sleep quickly and he won’t wake up until turned fully upside down. The approximate retail price is $30. New York will be the first city to receive the new Furbys. A retirement party for the original six fur patterns for Furby will make sure that the original Furby steps down in style.
WHEN: Friday, March 12, 1999
WHERE: FAO SCHWARZ
Fifth Avenue & 58th Street
