How tall is a Furby?
Furbies were originally made with a height of six (6) inches or fifteen (15) centimeters. It was created by David Hampton and Caleb Chung which took them nine months and subsequently another grueling six months to design and bring it out. At first there were no takers but then Roger Shiffman the President of Tiger Electronics bought the rights and Furby was born. It was December 1998 that saw Furby become a phenomenon in the toy industry like none other had done before. Selling 1.8 million just after it was launched by end of December 1998, propelled Furby to unprecedented heights within the toy industry and around the world.
