Step 2: Carefully Cut Off All Fur and Strapping Plastic That Holds Fur on the Furby.

I will add photos and a Video to "YOU TUBE.com soon---sorry"

Step 4: Clip Various Connection to Modify the Resistance Level to the Processor Voice Chip.


Step 5: Add 1.5 Meg or Higher Potentiometers to the Clipped Components.


Step 6: Add Metal Body Contacts, Soldered From the Black Blob Tracing Spots.


Step 7: Add Pots and Switches to the Mechanical Circuit Board IC Pattern.


Step 8: Add a 1/4" Jack for Amplification.

    well... movie and book pun... but still...

    mogwai? I always thought so.....

    i just took my furby apart and i want to fix it and put it back together cuz now that it got no fur if it starts talking to my then i might cry out of fear cuz this thing is creepy

    dont know who got me into this furby conversation but it was not me and count me out

    are you kidding, it looks better tha the old furby, what you thinking, stupad

    No it's creepy as hell with the fur on

    well my furby don't listen to me. Can someone help me please KYLE CRASH

    angrydroid is a KOOL Dude from the east coast.............he will become a great circuitry repurposer, and or, circuit boarder soon..he has the glitch and the itch! If any of you guys need help starting, just email me, I will gladly help. I would invite you to my shop, if you could get to Oklahoma (in the sticks) lee daniel at bMc p.s. sorry for the few pictures of the 2nd gen furby.

    I decided to retract my statements about bMc and this Instructable. For the record bMc is a great guy and these guys with the sacks of concrete just made the most lovely offer of some shoes custom-made just for me. An offer I simply CANNOT refuse...

    How wrong you are. This is one of those giant furby's that can talk and dance and shit. My little sister had this and I circuit bent it also, it looked very close to that. I still admire that you tried to explain why hes a fraud unlike other poeple who jsut say: He/She is a fraud!
