Can anyone explain the phenomenon of a school 'banning' a certain fad? What is it about the popularity of a toy/game that makes it more disruptive than any other object brought to school? You can't do anything in school other than pay attention to lectures without getting into trouble, so I'm just not understanding this policy.
- The nosies it makes can be annoying and disrupt a class.
At the time I remember a lot of people saying that their furbies would die if they communicated with other furbies in a certain way. Was there any truth in this or was it yet another Furby myth?
The rumor is 100% false.
This article mentions how it's big with hacker communities and other people who like to modify the furbys. Maybe we should find a link to that kind of thing. I've heard so many hilarious stories about modded furbys - like a guy who painted his with glow in the dark paint and gave it glowing red eyes. The guy who got his to say swear words. Stories of feral furbies - etc.
Motivation of parents violates impariality
In several places its stated parents had a greater motivation to get a furby then the child, and that parents were forced to buy them for 300 or more dollars at auction "just to make their child happy". The motivation of the parent's actions violates the concept of impariality, in addition to being unvarifiable and therefore having no place in the article. I'd ask for an editor's permission to alter these points or for them to do it themselves.
I happen to know it is not true that they only utter prerecorded phrases, we had to murder mine after it completely accurately imitated our telephone.
