1. FURBY BOOM (CRYSTAL SERIES)
RRP $29.99
When Furbies first came out in 1998, they were the most popular toys of the
holiday season. The tradition continues. There is a new product in the line of
Furby toys called the Furby Boom.
The Furby Boom comes in a range of decorative designs including stripes,
polka dots, and even festive sweaters. The Crystal Series features colorful fur
and gemlike ears, eyes, and feet. The innovative Furby Boom has twice as
many responses than the previous Furby. If your child wants to play, dance or
have a party, the Furby Boom can do it all.
Furby Boom responds to you and has 5 different personalities that it changes
between based on how you treat it. Through the free Furby Boom App
available for download at the App store or Google Play, Furby Boom will
remember the name you give it and the name of other Furby Boom friends it
meets.
Keep track of your Furby Boom’s health, hunger and cleanliness levels using
the Furby Boom App:
• Shower your Furby to make sure it’s nice and clean!
• Take an X-Ray if it’s feeling under the weather!
• Grab your Furby a snack from the virtual pantry if it’s hungry.
• With Furby Boom Crystal Series you can also collect virtual eggs to
hatch your very own Crystal Furbling!
Want your Furby Boom to sleep? Just pull and hold its tail for 10 seconds and
Furby will close its eyes and take a nap. For other reactions try the following:
Tickle Furby’s tummy, pet Furby, feed Furby with your finger, shake Furby,
speak to Furby, turn Furby upside down, play music for Furby and introduce
Furby to other Furby’s. Furby toys are the must have toy this holiday season.

over 1.1 billion dollars at the worldwide box office to become the second
highest-grossing animated film of all time after Frozen. Minions is currently
ranked 10th highest grossing film of all time at the worldwide box office.
Minions are small yellow cylindrical creatures with one or two eyes that wear
metal goggles, blue overalls and small black gloves. Ever since the dawn of
time, Minions have lived to serve the most despicable of masters. From T-rex
to Napoleon, the easily distracted tribe has helped the biggest and baddest of
villains. Minions are impulsive creatures with little self-control, but with a wideeyed wonder and odd innocence that endears them to viewers. They express
themselves through actions, not words, in a language of their own.

Christmas and one of the favourites is Minion Bob. Press Bob’s pocket to hear

into the right side of Bob. Then press Bob’s pocket or move his head and he
will thank you and start singing or talking to his teddy bear. Press his pocket
again for another response. Unplug the teddy bear to play in Talk Mode.
Minion Bob is just one in a collection of Minions Talking Action Figures.
Others to collect are Minion Kevin who loves bananas and Minion Stuart who
