If you had a Furby growing up, you probably have a few frightening Furby tales. With their cries at midnight to be fed and gibberish language, these initially-cute-but-later-terrifying beasts went from one of the hottest toys of the 1998 holiday season to a rumored government spying contraption rather quickly. Even if you shoved your Furby in the closet to make it go to sleep, they would still to squeak out "FEED ME," in the dead of the night. Compared to the cool toys that exist today, Furbies could be viewed as straight up torture devices.
Redditors have taken to the internet to share their creepy Furby stories, so we all know we're not alone in our warranted fear of these things. If you've ever wanted to know the creepiest things Furbies have done, then look no further. Check out the terrifying Furbies stories below.
Don't Feed A Furby After Midnight
From Redditor /u/brokenphoenix:
"My brother had one that he left in the kitchen one night. In my half asleep stupor all I could see was black kitchen blobs since I didn't want to turn on the light and burn my eyes out. So I get my glass of water and start to head back when I hear something giggle behind me. Then ask for food. I couldn't see anything so I just backed away slowly and it said 'Bye!' I didn't go in the kitchen the next day until my mom went and figured out what the hell that was. Turns out I couldn't see it because he took off all the fur part so it was just a black blob of parts. I'm glad I couldn't see it because all there really was were a pair of eyes to see and that would have scared me worse than anything."9,3743,090Is this creepy?
Furbies Have Feelings Too, You Know
From Redditor /u/I_Can_Do_A_Cartwheel:
"So when I was abooooout let's say 7 or 8 I had two Furbys. A Mom Furby and baby Furby. One day my older brothers were f*cking around with the baby Furby throwing it up in the air over and over again until one of them eventually drops it. It ended up making some weird noises, closing it's eyes, and never turning back on. The Mom Furby apparently hears this, makes the EXACT SAME NOISES and then proceeds to die off as well. THE MOM FURBY DIED OF APPARENT SADNESS OVER THE DEATH OF HER CHILD. I changed the batteries in both numerous times and they never came back to life.
Anywho, Furbys have been a slightly traumatic experience for me."10,0153,574Is this creepy?
Invalid Furbies Are Taken To A "Farm"
From Redditor /u/Doedeer:
"When the Furby craze hit, I asked my dad for one because my birthday was coming up. Got it, loved it. About a year or two after, I was playing with it and it fell from my hand to the ground mid sentence. The furby just kept repeating half a word, but within a minute, the sound started warping, it sounded really creepy, and it wouldn't stop despite my efforts. So... I shoved it in my dresser to deafen the noise. A week later, I go to check up on the Furby and its gone.
No idea what happened."7,3203,057Is this creepy?
This Furby Gives The Doll Annabelle A Run For Her Money
From Redditor /u/Pedeka:
"I got one for my homebound aunt the year they came out. She passed away and it came back home to me as a memento. It will not stay put away or without batteries for more than a month or so. It refuses to be ignored, like a creature from an episode of the Twilight Zone. Somehow, it talks people in my life into finding it in boxes, closets, basements, storage lockers...etc. Thanks to my 5 yr old and the dog it is currently laying in a corner of my living room jibbering as I type this. In the future I will be living in a padded room, with a piece of filthy fake fur repeatedly telling me that I am boring, as my only company."6,3103,229Is this creepy?
