Furby Connect is 60 percent off today, so give your child a friend for Christmas

The word “Furby” may take you back to simpler times in 1998. But while you were discovering newfangled things like the World Wide Web, the Furby brand was still quietly plugging along in the background, working towards a modern version of itself.

Furby Connect is the fruit of that labor, and we have to admit that the new version is way, way better than what we had as kids.

With built-in Wi-Fi and its own companion app, Furby Connect is like giving your child an adorable, little robot for a best friend. 

Normally they retail for $99, but Amazon’s Deal of the Day marks them down to $39.99, which is a great deal for one of the hottest gifts of the year.

With five colors to choose from, this would be a pretty great surprise for your kids to find under the tree Christmas morning.
