Furby toys ‘turn nasty,
seedy and inappropriate’

Scotsman [Edinburgh], by Jane Bradley

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/8/2014 10:47:11 AM

It was one of the most coveted gifts of the festive period and turned up under thousands of Christmas trees last year. But now parents have hit out at popular must-have toy the Furby Boom after it emerged that some of the creatures have developed “inappropriate” second personalities which have upset their children. The Furby, an electronic robotic toy which requires children to talk to and stroke it, as well as feed and put it to sleep, was a major hit when makers Hasbro relaunched the 1990s classic last year. The cute creation made it into the toy hit lists

Comments:
Toy (designed by Steven King?) transforms into a leering Bill Clinton if it doesn´t get its way.

“Our daughter had already been doting on the thing. What more could it want?” asked one parent online.

What kind of parent worries about what a toy "wants"? If it´s seedy and inappropriate and disturbs the child ... throw it away! Easy as that. Don´t whine about it.

FTA: A spokeswoman for Hasbro said that the toy was designed to have more than one personality, switching to a less friendly version if the child does not show it enough attention.

It´s bizarre that Hasbro designed the toy to have multiple personalities depending on how it´s played with. Has Hasbro forgotten that its target consumers are chlldren? That is just creepy.

The first thought that crossed my mind is that maybe lavishing attention on it has something to do with it turning foul? That seems to be the way humans are wired, as evidenced by the recent "affluenza" flap. Over-indulging people turns them into beasts of entitlement.

´But furbys are programmed to be sweeter if you dote on them,´ one might object. Aren´t humans expected to be as nice as you treat them, too? Things don´t always react the way you expect them to react.

I´m not declaring this, nor even suggesting... just wondering.

My daughter received a Furby from Grandma for Christmas. Last night when she tried playing with it, it had turned evil. We had to rub its head for almost 10 minutes to turn it sweet again. I have a feeling it will disappear soon.

I would have never put that on her list to Grandma if I´d known - much more research needed by Mom for next year.

Ahhh the Gullibles have been taken again. Ever notice how just before Christmas there is always a doll or toy that is the "Doll/Toy of the Year that a child must have". Suddenly parents are running to the store to buy one thus making a shortage, thus causing panic in parents because their child will be deprived.

Marketers know how to sell to the gullible suckers.

Same thing on videos "going viral". They didn´t until someone puts it in the news saying it´s "viral" so then the Gullibles runs to Youtube to see what the fuss is about, thus making the video "viral".

Marketers know how to sell to the gullible suckers.

WAIT...Politicians do the same thing to the Gullibles get elected.

Take it out in the back yard, remove the batteries, tie it to a little stake, pour gasoline all over it, light it and stand back.... Problem solved. Laugh uproariously while doing it. Dance around the fire with a crazy look on your face. Bury the remains in the nearest swamp.... Don´t even try to explain to the neighbors and the police and firemen what you were doing at three in the morning...

Or alternately, surreptitiously clip the battery wires and declare the thing broken and bury it in the nearest swamp....

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.
