Look at this sweet little thing! If you grew up in the 90’s, you’ll probably remember the toy that every kid wanted: Furby. It would talk to you, sing songs, play games, connect to other Furbies, and generally make a fun nuisance of itself. This year, it’s making a comeback in a fresh new form: Furby Connect!
A great new Furby Connect feature is the sleep mask. When the mask is on, it will stay asleep-no more random noises coming from the toy box! I made a Furby bed so ours would have a special place to sleep at night. It’s a no sew toy bed, so anyone can make it, trust me. 🙂
DIY Furby Connect Bed
- Child’s sweater
- Batting roll (affiliate)
If necessary, cut the roll to the length of both the sleeves (end to end.) My roll was just a standard batting roll from the fabric store, and it was exactly long enough to stretch across the sweater. Stuff the roll down each sleeve.
Curl the sleeves around until they meet and then tuck one inside the other. You can roll the top of the sweater back a bit so the neck is under the pillow roll. If you want to whip-stitch the collar shut, you can certainly do that, but it’s a bit more permanent. 🙂 The body of the sweater becomes the bottom of the bed. Isn’t it a cozy little spot for your friend?
Place your Furby Connect in the bed and wish him sweet dreams!
When Kee-Doh (that’s it’s name) is not sleeping, you can interact with him in several different ways. He reacts when you pick him up, shake him, pull his tail, press his antenna…basically he chatters away at you until you put him back to bed! The other way to play with him is with the Furby World app! In the app you can play games, watch videos, sing songs (he sings along!) hatch new little Furblings and even feed your friend. You can check out some of the features we played around with in this Facebook Live video. Plus, I demonstrate how to fold the Furby Connect bed in case you’re a visual learner!
