    I am not particulary surprised by this, but Hasbro is bringing back the furbie, those anoying mutant talking creatures that invaded our homes in the late 90s.

    The new furbies have quite a bit of modern tech crammed in them and it comes at a price, $60 to be exact.

    Theres a video at the link. Somehow the LED screen eyes are even more terrifying and souless than the old plastic ones.

    I loved my Furbies as a child. I may actually buy one of these new ones, just for nostalgia's sake.
