Must Have Robot: Furby


Speaking of Furby, it just passed its 20th anniversary. The first generation was conceived by Tiger Electronics in 1988 and over 40 million units of one the first autonomous robots were sold. We never got one, because for a while there they were in such demand they cost up to hundreds of dollars. But a couple of years ago, we noticed that they were selling online for $19.99. We bought one for our cat, thinking she would appreciate the company. No such luck. Our poor Furby spends most of his time now in the closet, at least until he achieves antique status (he has already doubled in value.) In honor of the anniversary, we name the Furby our Must Have this week.
