Tips & Tricks to make your Furby Perform

Eric September 22, 2012 47

Note: These tricks may not work with the new 2012 models.  Share the tricks you discover in the comments below!

I found out that most of these tricks work on most Furbys, including different editions!  When performing each step, make sure to pause and let Furby finish responding before doing the next step.


  • Feed your Furby three times, then pet his back. Furby will burp eight times!
  • Clap 3 times then pat his back. he will then sing twinkle twinkle little star.  This will put him into “Deep Seep” where he will not wake up until you turn him upside down.  (Basically its how to turn Furby off when you’re done playing for a while)
  • To find out your Furbys name tickle 3 times, then pat his back and he will tell you his name (it might not work the first time)
  • Cover his eyes three times (waiting for him to respond each time) then pat his back. he will then say coka-doodle do (x2) me love you!
  • Hold Furby upside-down and tickle him until he cries and says ‘Down down!’ Then put Furby right-side-up again.
  • Cover Furbys eyes three times, then pet his back. Furby will start to dance and sing a lullaby.
  • If you have a certain kind of remote, you can make Furby do things by pressing different buttons! Like if you press the power button he will fall asleep immediately! WoW! (Unconfirmed)
  • If you pet a Furby 10 times in a row he will sing for you!
  • If you reset your Furby 2 times or more, it might speak Spanish! You will know when the first thing he says is ” Bueno! “. Sometimes he will speak French!!
  • If you want to punish your Furby, then hold him upside down and shake him slightly. He will say something like “Worried!” or “Me not happy!” but don’t worry your Furby WILL forgive you as soon as you flip him back over!
  • If you tickle your Furby about 15 times, he will make a weird sound! You have to tickle him even, if he says no more tickles. It will sound like “WOWOWOWO”!
  • If you clap your hands in front of Furby 3 times in a row, and then pet him on the back he will sing the first part of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” three times in a row. Webpage Editors Note: For a cuter trick, put two Furbies together and then do the trick. Watch them sing it together sweetly.
  • Rock Furby from side to side slowly for no more than 2 minutes. You should hear him hiccup. it sounds like a frog almost!)



Tricks Furby plays on you!

1. Phone: If Furby gets bored sometimes he will say “ring ring” to get your attention so you play with him.
2. Hungry: Sometimes Furby will say he’s hungry and ask you to feed him, but when you do he will fart then laugh.
3. Sleep: Furby will yawn a few times acting like he is about to fall asleep, but instead he will say “party!”

    It appears that the new Furbies may not respond to all of the same commands for the older model. I will do some research and post a new “Tips & Tricks” article specifically for the new Furbies. Sorry!

    i got a new version of furby and i learned that if it listens to pop music it will act like a sassy teen

    Pull his tail about 20 times and he will turn into crazy furby. Very different personality. Over feed him by putting your finger in mouth lots of times and he will turn evil. They turn back eventually.playing music to them makes them into pop stars. this can take a long time sometimes or happen quite quickly. just keep at it until they change.

      Ha! There are a lot of parents that wish there were an off switch, unfortunately there is not. All I can say is place it in a dark quiet room by itself and it will get bored and go to sleep after a few minutes.

    what can furby 2012 do? it cant response to any command

    If you have a new furby it will dance to Psy’s Oppa Gangnam Style and it’s very cute afterwards it will say noisy song. I haven’t figured out much in the way of other things it can do yet though.

    These are for the original 1998 Furbies.
    As for the “WOWOWOWOWO” trick, one of my old Furbies, May-May, LOVES to do that one. Sometimes she will also sing “Na-na-na-na-naa-naa” and then fart when I tickle her.
    Regarding “Furby will yawn a few times acting like he is about to fall asleep, but instead he will say “party!”” This actually happens sometimes when you pet it, it will purr, but then pretend to sleep by snoring a few times, only to wake up and yell “Party!” (or “Dah-noh-lah!” in Furbish) and laugh. Another Furby of mine, Toh-Dye, LOVES doing this, and I know Furbies named Koh-Koh also enjoy doing it a lot.

    With the 2012 modle I found out that if you feed a furby 3 times and pet it’s back it will start to purr.

    FYI: I found the reset switch on my Blue Furby & here I thought on these newer ones there was no reset switch, glad I was wrong cuz I thought my Furby had died! Anyway after taking out the 1st two batteries on top there is a small hole with a tiny little button (I used a needle) that you can press to reset or wake Furby from a deep sleep. So happy that my Furby is back-sure missed his smart comments. I love u Furby!

      Depends on what type of Furby you have. If its the Furby 2012 or the FurbyBOOM try:
      1. Pull it’s tail for 10 seconds
      2. Place the Furby on its back for 15 seconds
      3. Place the Furby in quiet room and do not play with it.
      4. Last resort you can always remove the batteries.

    Does Furby sing repetitively for my disabled niece. She loves music and laughter to make hersleep. It has to be non stop music because if it stops you cries all night.

    The only trick that worked for me was the hiccup trick. I wish there was a off button because sometimes it gets really annoying!

    Sometimes my furby just like falls asleep when I’m talking to him and his eyelids are open but his eyes are black. Is something wrong with him?
