With more than 40 million pieces sold worldwide in the first three years of its production, the FURBY creature quickly became a global phenomenon following its 1998 debut. FURBY was the leading interactive product of its kind, propelling the animatronic pet category to prominence.

The adorable creature spoke its own language (FURBISH) and could also “learn” to speak the language of the country where it was purchased. This September, Hasbro reintroduces the magic of FURBY, an evolved, interactive friend with ‘A MIND OF ITS OWN’ and a personality that is shaped based on how it is treated.

Now almost 15 years later, it’s time to dust off the FURBISH dictionary because FURBY is back!
Furby iPhone/iPad app now available. Features include Translator and Dictionary to understand your Furby and Pantry and Deli to feed it.

Knut the polar bear gets Berlin Zoo memorial

I pitied this little polar bear named Knut, who died at the age of 4 years. It was so cute when it was just a baby cub. Knut, The first polar bear born at the zoo for more than 30 years, was rejected by his mother and fed instead by his keeper Thomas Doerflein.

Felt sad that there’s lesser and lesser polar bears alive. I hope people can save the polar bears & conserve them despite of global warming & ice cap melting. Some of them died due to loss of habitat & some may not get used to the new environment. It was heart-warming to see so many people being the fans of polar bears & hope people can do something to help them.

Now there’s a memorial for this polar bear at Berlin Zoo in Germany 1 year after its death. It is part of the remembrance of this special polar bear who lived in the Berlin Zoo then.
