[MUSIC] What's furry, like to dance, and now stays connected via bluetooth so it always knows the time and can bug you about new things every day? Furby Connect, Hasbro's newest Furby has bluetooth to compared with a new Furby Connect app to get more connected to the time, viral hit songs, or whatever else Hasbro wants to have Furby surprise you with. Furby Connect also has dances better with other Furby Connects. It also likes to interact more with iOS, android, and Amazon Fire apps. Occasionally it poops. In some sense, Furby Connect is a more connected toy, maybe one that could be an on-demand information toy down the road. But it's no Amazon echo with fur. Furby Connect doesn't know your location. It won't know your name and it won't wake you up in the night with reminders to do important things on your calendar. It's more like a slightly smarter smart toy than a true interactive robot. But it does have a wiggly antenna that shows its mood, and new full-color eyes. You can put it to sleep with a new plug-in sleep mask. Turn it off. Or if you prefer, keep Furby Connect awake all night partying forever. [MUSIC]
