A Real Life Furby?

Last week we talked about those electronic furby toys that were all the rage about ten years ago, and got some great comments about reactions and personal experiences.


And as it turns out, our timing on that subject was spot-on because yesterday CNN ran a story called, “Scientists Discover Long-Lost Furby-Look-Alike." (Thanks to our Golfing Librarian Chuck for that heads-up). Here’s the picture:

Pretty amazing, huh? Check it out and tell us what you think!

Hi Tina,
I saw that article and was hoping that I wouldn't bump into that little creature in the night. It sort of looks like something from outerspace. And could be as friendly as ET, but still...those eyes!

Oh creepy. It kinda reminds me of one of the creatures in the spaceship from the movie, The Navigator.
