FURBY BOOM APP FEATURES:
When you play with Furby Boom using the free Furby Boom app, you unlock the complete game experience. First, your Furby Boom will need a name, which you pick out. Your Furby has an evolved memory so it will remember its own name and the names of Furby Boom friends it meets. Next, you'll need to keep track of what Furby needs using the app's monitor. Keep tabs on the health, hunger and cleanliness levels of Furby Boom and use the app's features to tend to those needs. Time for a health check? Try x-raying Furby. Is Furby hungry? Pick out something tasty for Furby from the pantry. Does Furby need to freshen up? Use the Furby Boom app to give Furby a shower! When you take care of your Furby Boom, Furby Boom becomes ready to take care of something too. That's when you get your first Furby Furblings egg!
Furby Boom can hatch 50-plus virtual Furblings eggs. Get eggs by taking care of your Furby Boom, getting them from friends with a Furby Boom, or even by finding them (see Furby.com for all the ways to collect eggs). As you collect and hatch Furblings eggs, your digital Furby Boom city fills up with virtual Furblings. Can you hatch enough to fill your city and get the golden egg? Play games in the app between you, your Furby and your virtual Furblings such as Furball, the Furbish version of soccer! Between taking care of your Furby Boom and raising virtual Furblings, the Furbish fun goes on and on!
