As you can imagine, this is no ordinary Furby and with the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens in November 2015 the Furbacca is going to be a very popular toy for years to come.
With that said, Star Wars fans, rejoice! There is another Star Wars-themed toy to accompany those lightsabers, Darth Vader costumes and Yoda action figures in your collection! It’s Furbacca, which is inspired by everyone’s favorite Wookie, Chewbacca!
Who Would Buy The Furbacca
Anyone – and we mean, anyone – who fell under the spell of Yoda and were sucked into the story of a galaxy far, far away in the Star Wars films, will definitely want to get their hands on Furbacca. Hasbro’s take on the Wookie results in a toy that is both adorable and interactive, retaining the charm of the character while making full use of technology to make it interact with users.
Things I Like About The Furbacca
Hey, it’s Chewbacca-inspired! Does there have to be reasons other than that?
Apparently, most of us do not think so. But we’re glad that Hasbro has given us those reasons, even if we didn’t need them.
First of all, Furbacca is simply too adorable. Recreated into these tiny little furry creatures, the traditional look of Chewbacca is retained. It’s a Furby, yes, but it’s a Furby that looks like Chewbacca.
And there is the fact that this Furby has a sense of rhythm. Why else would it be humming the recognizable Star Wars theme?
As an interactive toy, it displays a high level of response and reaction. This is thanks to the sensors built into it. If you get the app, you will be able to turn Furbacca into your personal pet and playmate. Feed it, bathe it, play games with it, and have a lot of fun with it!
Things I Did Not Like About The Furbacca
According to some, $80 for something so small is a bit much. But that really depends on what you expect from this toy. As far as we can tell, all the features seem solid, and Hasbro has always been a reliable toy manufacturer.

Is The Furbacca Worth The Money?
If you are a Star Wars fan, it’s a no-brainer: the Furbacca is a must-have. With its interactive features and its all-around cuteness, it is worth every cent of that $80 price tag.
Where Can I Buy The Furbacca?
