How is this possible?
The hottest holiday toy for 2012 is… Furby. Although this one is different than version we remember from 1998. The new Furby is a fluffy owl-like robot that sleeps, dances, talks, eats, and constantly "learns" new behavior, is flying off store shelves—and going for big bucks on the private market—around the world.
The price to buy one is about the same as it was 14 years ago, they go for $54 but finding one is still impossible. Parents are flipping the toy online for $75 to $2,500 for the hard to find colors.
And yes, they are still REALLY annoying.
