Short Takes: Funny Stuff Found on Freecycle


Recently posted to my local Freecycle group by Randy Womack, reprinted with permission.

OFFER: Furby

Yes - the toy that learns. Got at garage sale. Don't know why.

My girls still love their 3 Furbys. They have 2 babies and 1 adult. Plus a few dozen non-talking ones.

Rachel, someone wanted Randy's Furby, too. If your girls still love theirs, that's great.

Furbys are evil toys straight from hell.

Daughter got one at age 4 and the stupid thing got *sick* and coughed and coughed and coughed...I finally took the batteries out because it wouldn't shut up and it wouldn't go to sleep.

I'd be happy to send hers to a kid that wanted one but it died an unromantic death after it was left in the yard overnight during a rainstorm. I accidentally "forgot" to remind her to bring it back inside. Ooops!

Katy, there are obviously very mixed reactions to Furby ...
