Meet the Ugliest Holiday Toy of 2013

Furby Boom (Hasbro)
Ages 6 years & up
Approx. Retail Price: $64.99
Requires 4 AA batteries, not included

One of Holiday 2012's hottest playthings, the Furby is back again with all the features of its predecessor, but with a lot more content and a free Furby Boom app.

Through their mobile devices, kids can go on a digital adventure -- raising, caring for and playing games with their playmate. As they care for their Furby Boom, they will earn colorful virtual eggs that in time will each hatch and become a Furbling virtual friend. The owner and the Furby Boom can both feed, play and interact with the virtual Furbling creatures who speak English and "Furbish."

The interactive dashboard on the app monitors the Furby Boom, including its happiness, hunger and cleanliness levels. As kids engage with the app, their Furby Friend will react. If the dashboard indicates it's time to clean up, users can access the app's shower feature and watch as Furby Boom physically reacts to the water's temperature.

The Furby Boom also has an enhanced memory function that will allow it to remember other creatures it encounters. The personality of each Furby Boom is shaped by how the child plays with it, with the possibility of five brand-new personalities to evolve.
