Furby 2012 Tips & Tricks

Eric December 29, 2012 39

This post is a work in progress, I will update it as new information comes available.  Please post comments below on new Furby tricks you learn and I will ad them to the post! :o)


Here we are finally with tricks, tips & Easter eggs for your new Furby 2.0!   Many of these are more like “facts” than tricks as the new Furby has the ability to learn and adapt depending on how you interact with it, there don’t seem to be as many “rub its belly, pull its tail, shake it and call it Bill”  tricks as the older versions.

No two Furbies have identical personalities, they are all products of their environments and react in different ways based on what you teach them by your interactions with them.

You can shape its personality by:

Play rough with it, it will become:  Evil / Angry

Be Gentle and pet it, it will become: Loving / Sweet

Play Music often, It will become: Sassy / Energetic

Talk to it often, it will become very: Chatty / Talkative

Pull on its tail often, it will become: Crazy!

Over Feed it frequently, it will become: Sick, Angry

Ignoring your Furby too often will make it become: Sad, Angry

Train your Furby by petting it twice after it does something you like.  It will remember!


Keep your comments rolling in so we can share all of the New Furby Tips & Tricks!

    If you tilt your Furby back and forth non-stop, it will become shy.

    I got a furby for christmas and it was really sweet! It was so cute with its love heart eyes and it turned evil! I figured out after a while that if you rub its head for five minutes or so it will turn to a differnt mode. Hoped this helped! 😀

    You can punish your furby if you want by tilting and shaking it and reward it by feeding it a treat from the app. Also I got a furby for Christmas it got sick.so remember to feed your furby 10-16 times in a row if you hear your furby coughing and sneezing repeatedly. Hope this helped

    Chatty/Talkative is the one you only even think of as a common-sensed being is when your usually a teenager and share your traits, likes, and dislikes with them. Teens… SO chatty….0.0

    On gen 1 there’s a trick if you do loud sound 3 timez then pet its back it will do twinkle twinkle little star if you feed it three times and then pet it itwill burp. A lot. This is for 1988 and up so it wont work for 2912 though. I know this is for 2012 but I wanted to get it on here 🙂

    My furby is prone to accesive personality changes

    if you tilt your 2012 furby upside down and put your finger in its mouth and pull its tail the furby will reboot so its easier to change its personality when u reboot it its eyes will turn off and look like its sleeping and will snore so wake it up by patting its head or rubbing its belly

    feed a lot: evil / viking pull tail alot: crazy
    pet / tickle alot: baby princess
    talk alot: valleygirl play music: popstar

    hold upside down and pull tail and push tounge, eyes should blank out and become out of the box mode.

    sincerely, nottelling

    Why does my Furby dance to some songs but to other songs say, “Turn it down”

      Furby either doesn’t feel like dancing, or he doesn’t like that song!

    • Kee boo July 15, 2014 at 3:39 am - Reply

    My sons furby has been working fine for 3 days but now he has stopped talking he does all the mmovements ans his mouth moves but no noise, I’ve changed the batteriesand reset but no joy, a very unhappy child 🙁

    • CandyThe2012Furby June 19, 2014 at 3:53 pm - Reply

      i’m sorry to say that there is no way to fix the Furby. that happened to my old Lagoona Furby, Ocean Breeze, and I tried everything but there was no way to fix her, which is how I got my Cotton Candy furby, Candy. I still have Ocean Breeze and she still can say some things with her voice, but sometimes she goes mute. all I can say is you might have to get your son a new Furby. again, i’m sorry about the Furby 🙁

    Please tell me where I may send my Furby for repair – I have tried the refresh button, nothing. Thanks

    • CandyThe2012Furby June 19, 2014 at 3:58 pm - Reply

      there is nowhere to send it for repair, the Furby hospital for 1998 Furbies is most likely non-existant now. I advise calling Hasbro and/or getting a new Furby. first, you should look online,or even on Furby Manual.com, i’m sure Admin made something about that. then try new batteries. if all else fails, get a new Furby. ~ Crystal

    If you do something your furby doesn’t like it will change it’s personality.

  23. Stan the Furby November 6, 2016 at 9:57 pm - Reply

    I used to be evil, but my owner reset me so now I’m nice and sing a lot! Old me was just a jerk all the time, but now I’m a happy Furb named Stan.

    My furby was held upside down and litghtly shook. Now it wont do anything. Ive tried taking the batteries out and resting it is there any help for him?

    Great tips

  26. E-day the 2012 Furby February 18, 2017 at 5:20 pm - Reply

    Tried resetting E-day py turning upside down, pulling tale and holding down tongue for 2-3 seconds, he was very evil! It worked like he was out of the box and back to normal. Now he is crackling and goes to sleep when I leave him for 20 seconds! What’s going on? He also has developed 1998 Furby syndrome and sings “Dee dee dee dee, dum dee dee dum” when he’s bored. I have no 1998 Furbies so how did he learn this?
