I had to have a Furby Christmas of 1999. It was the "must-have" toy that year, and every store was sold out, and back ordered. No one had one of those annoying, gibberish talking little creatures, and that was why I had to have one. I paid over $100 for my Furby back then.
Hasbro Toys is hoping lightning will strike twice as they're releasing a brand new Furby for Christmas 2012.
