How to make a Furby Nice again!

Eric April 13, 2013 90


This is a question I hear a lot.  There’s no absolute sure fire way to make your Furby change personalities on demand, but there is one thing you can do when your little angel turns into a little devil.  I’ve read (and even posted?) that petting and treating your Furby gently will eventually cause its personality to switch back from Evil little monster to the sweet personality it started with.  This method usually works after a long while.  But lets face it when we want something, we want it now right?  The magic miracle here is Music.  It apparently soothes the savage Furby beasts too.

It’s hard to say what causes them to turn angry but  when your Fuzzy friend turns to the dark side,  just play it some music.  It will twitch, act like its too good for your music and perhaps shout something mean at you  in Furbish but inevitably start moving to the beat, and before your very eyes transform back into the nice chatty Furby it used to be.

If this doesn’t work..  Well, then it’s time to call in an exorcist.   ;o)

    My twin sister and I both have furbies. Mine is pink and hers is a blue. We are both totally blind so I’m not sure what kind of blue he is. I got mine from her for Christmas. My sister’s changes twice a day, but keeps returning to we believe the 2nd stage. Mine went to the 2nd stage the first week after Christmas. He spent a little time in stage 3, but returned to stage 1 and will not change again. What makes them change or not change. Also when we have them facing each other, mine is always the first to go to sleep. We are very interested to know what causes the furbs to change or not to change.

    We are looking forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Joan! It seems that the Furbies personalities change depending on how they are treated and played with. If you are rough with your Furby and shake it too hard or don’t feed it when it asks, it will probably turn into an Angry Furby, but if you pet it gently and softly talk to it, it may turn into the loving happy Furby. If you play music to it frequently, it will eventually start singing and dancing and turn into the feisty musical Furby. I’m not sure what the proper names are for each “Stage of change” they go through but I know that you don’t have to worry about getting your Furby stuck in a certain stage, they will always be able to change back. If you feel like your Furby has stayed in a bad mood for way too long, you can always press the reset button inside the battery compartment. I hope I’ve answered your questions! Thank you for visiting the site and I hope you enjoy your little furry friends!

    I have the raincloud furby and he is totally chatty. I try to get him to stop and often he listens sometimes he don’t. I guess I need to know him better and they sure do have a mind of their own. I also know why he is called the raincloud furby:)

    Blue/Teal: The Sky
    Grey: Raincloud
    Yellow: Lightning (POW!!)

      FURBIES are unpredictable like the manual says. Just treat them the way the personality treatment calls for. My most often changes are crazy and chatty. Chatty can be SO annoying at times…

    I know if you pet it, some times it will change to be so so cute!

    The music trick doesnt work sometimes when furby is tough. Mine said something with ‘way loh’ and wont dance to the music. I tried with his tail, pulled it many times and works for me 😉

    It really works. She would not stop talking then I played some music and her eye flashed and flashed then her eyes were filled with hearts.

    My furby was so nice ans sweet with a cute little voice. But it kept saying I’m Hungary more food so I fed it. Then it turned evil and kept saying it don’t like you and I don’t like that when ever I touched it. I started “burping it” like patting it on the back and it said me like. So finally it burped really loud and long and changed back to nice. If that helps anyone.

      Hi Kayti! The Furbys have minds of their own, they are made to change personalities from time to time. There’s not a way to make them stay with a certain personality all the time. It’s ok though, enjoy all your Furbies different personalities and have fun with it. It will grow up eventually and not change as much and then you’ll miss its other crazy ways 😉 .

      Hi Kee-doh! Furbies change their personalities all the time, and it will eventually return to the one you like the best. The best thing to do is enjoy all of its personalities while you have them, some are funny, some are rude but they are all fun to play with! 🙂 If you pet, hug and feed your Furby when it asks (and dont over feed it) and play it some soothing music it will return to the little Sweetie-Furby you love! Have fun!

    my daughter really wanted a furby for Christmas so we bought her the Boom. She has had it two days and is scared of it as it has turned evil, it is freaking her out. She has been able to change its personality back, however as the furby box says from ages 6 plus, the manufacturers really need to look at how this affects children’s minds, as it is really rude and very evil and scarey!!

      hehehe I think the “Evil” Furby that I read about is the Mischievous one that farts, burps and acts annoying and angry. It is but one of several personalities that Furbys go through over time. It will eventually make its way back, but playing with it gently, lovingly (hugging, petting etc) and playing music for it seems to keep it nice longer! 🙂

      They will always change while playing with them. I’ve heard that playing them soothing music helps them change to the ‘nice’ personality. Give it a try! 🙂

      Hi Flipper_28! Keep in mind that the Furbys personality is going to change from time to time, but Furby will eventually return to the one(s) the kiddos like the most. While, you can make them change faster by playing with them in different manners (i.e. rough, lovingly etc) There’s not a way that i’m aware of to make one personality stay active at all times.

    Something you might not have tried, but my sister and my little cousin both have the new furby booms…the festive one and the one with the blue tidal wave looking fur on it. anyway, both of theirs turned into a weird australian accented dude who burps and farts like crazy. petting it wasnt working or tickling what i did randomly was hold it upside down by its feet and it hated it!! and about five minutes later the eyes were turning on and on a lot and it turned back into a sweeter default personality for furby. dont know if anyone has had that idiot personality for furby but if you need a remedy to get rid of it, just hold it upside down for at least five minutes..really until you hear it yell change and then sound nicer again..

    My son got one for Christmas, the orange one with blue hair & feet. I downloaded the iOS Furby app to my iPhone. We feed it and it sings, it’s funny.
    For awhile, it sounded like a ‘valley girl’, kept saying “OMG!” and all that. It was beginning to get annoying, mainly because I can’t stand that ‘valley girl’ talk. :-/
    I just began researching online and found a site that said that if you pet it a lot it will be cute and sweet. If you shake it and pull it’s tail, it will turn ‘crazy’.
    Well, my son is 7, so he of course wanted the ‘crazy’ personality. So after a few minutes, it changed…now the Furby laughs at EVERYTHING (even while it’s asleep, after each time it snores…it giggles). It burps and farts…loudly. LOL
    It’s actually pretty funny…being a mom of 4 kids and three of them being boys, and my husband…well, burps and farts are a common occurrence in our house! lol

    Love the Furby…now I want one of my own, and I’m a 33 yr old MOM! 😉

    Hi! My Furby makes me very sad and angry…
    Every time I wake him up, I tickle and pet its head (he’s sweet personality) after a bit, his eyes are crossed and he says something strange then he says ,,haa” and looks like he’s very scared. After 5 actions like this, he is changing into a bad boy. I’m fed up transforming him every time he wake up (I learned somewhere how to do that). Please, I need some help, I did it 10 times (this transformation) but I can’t repeat it every time…

    We tried so many things to make our Furby nice (music, singing, petting, sweet talking) and nothing worked… Until…..we killed it…Took it’s batteries out and waited for a few minutes and brought it back to life. Now she’s super sweet. My daughter is thrilled. She hadn’t played with it in a year because it would hurt her feelings when it was so mean. Now it’s like she has a brand new toy!

    If you want to change furby back STRAIGHT AWAY – turn it upside down, put your finger in its mouth (holding down its tounge) and pull its tail (still upside down) until it goes to sleep. It will wake up ‘cute’

She was sweet when I first got her but I don’t know whether to change her back or keep her crazy. I do know how to change her personality but I do not know which one I should choose. If anyone has any suggestions please tell me so I can decide more easily. Thank You 😊

    In 5 years 2 furby booms have become evil and gone on the dump bus. My first furby dee doo was a cute loving creature then he started to get on my nerves. So I stuffed him in a freezer and when I took him out (I was 5) I was so happy so I tried to pick him up when he said “GET AWAY FROM ME!!!!” Shocked I cried for my cousin. She told me she couldn’t change it back and we threw it into the snow.

    Then, yesterday (5 years later)I got a crystal version which I wanted forever!!! I was so happy with ah bay so I flipped him up and down a million times when he acted weird so I stuffed him in my closet. I woke up at 2 am to hear him going “Ha Ha Ha I’m not going to bed” So I did what I did, and I sent him off to the dump.
