Meet Furbacca, the new ‘Star Wars’ Furby. You don’t have to be Han Solo to get your own Wookiee sidekick. Now thanks to Hasbro, the next generation of the electronic robotic Furby toy will look like Chewbacca. This cute hairy character comes complete with long tail, egg belt and pouch as well as humming the Star Wars theme tune. Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys are predicted to be among the top Christmas toys for 2015.
Like previous Furbies, Furbacca is responsive and craves affection. Owners can virtually feed, bathe and play games with him through the accompanying iOS or Android app. LCD screens built into the eyes also display images of Imperial Star Destroyers and X-Wing Fighters. Furby Chewbacca also speaks wookiee and requires four AA batteries.
Furbacca is the only Furby to resemble a Star Wars character, but owners will be able to hatch Furbling friends (like little babies) that resemble other characters in the franchise, like Han Solo, within the app.
This Wookie Furby is a must-have toy for Christmas 2015. Furbacca will be available this fall for $79.99 – just in time for the holiday season.
