Description

The listing, Dead Furby! has ended.

A lifeless furby, known good batteries have failed to rouse him, and I can't find a switch on him anywhere. We tried yelling at him, clapping, shining bright lights in his face.

Maybe somebody out there collects these, you can maybe fix him? Or dissect him like a frog? Or simply stare into his creepy, soulless eyes. I don't care what you do with him, Batteries not included, since it would be sort of pointless.

You mean change it to a 5 day auction? I kind of like to give it the full seven days, hoping someone gets drunk enough to bid.

But for you, Snooki, I'll make it Priority Mail if you are the winning bidder. As long as you don't tell me how you manage to reanimate his corpse.

The batteries that had been in it were a little corroded but I didn't see any evidence that it had gotten on the terminals.

SPARKY- Thanks for the bid! I was starting to think I would have to bury him in the back yard, and then have him re-appear on my desk, or some creepy nonsense like that.

I tried again to revive this Furby, he is completely without power. I am thinking he might have a loose wire inside? A bad connection? He seems to be catatonic (Furbytonic?)

If he is dead, I don't know what he died of. It's not like I found him in the trunk of a car at the airport. There are no obvious signs of trauma. He doesn't have any particular odor, or make any noise at all. I would operate on him, but he doesn't seem to have any insurance.

Thank you for the amusement today, I truly needed it..........so now.........since I don't drink and I have no use for a furby...dead or alive........I may be able to help out since I am a paramedic........did you try mouth to fur? CPR? you could try a defibrillator him by using a couple of wires and the toaster..........but I wouldn't advise that unless you want curly hair........on you not the furby. There is always different witchcraft ways of bringing the dead back to life.......but I believe they have to be kept a live and fall in love before the stroke of midnight by the last day of the year or he goes back to dead.........and than you will be right back to where you started from.........personally I think you should paste a picture of a person you dislike over furby's face and use him as a voo doo doll.........than again........you could call a taxidermist............just some ideas.

I looked for an on/off/tryme switch to no avail. Where is it supposed to be located?

I did not try CPR on him, because his chest is sturdy plastic, and I don't like the taste of fur.

I had been wondering if he even wants me to try- he doesn't have a living will so there is no way of knowing.

And how does he want to be buried? If I knew what region of China he is from I could google and find out what the customs are for that.

Anyway, he will be sent off to whoever the high bidder ends up being, possibly to become an organ donor. I'm kind of glad that this is not going to be my problem in a few hours.

I think it would only be respectful to list him there......after all All Furbys go to heaven.....just think someday (hopefully not in the near future) we shall go home to our maker and hear millions of little voices say "Tickle Me'. hmmmmm I am thinking there is no reason not to sin anymore...........just saying LOL

So you don't want me to tell you how to fix him, lol? It's pretty simple..:) You don't have to change the days. I'll deal with 7 days, It's perfect that way. And thank you for the priority mail if I win, As for I don't have that any credits, If it goes too high, I won't be able to bid :( I'm hoping to so I can win it for my little brother.

Ya' know, if you skin a Furby, you will have a really cute costume for a really tiny dog. We did that once. Dog was NOT impressed.

I use to sell these creatures when they first came out, there is a hole in the bottom take a pen and poke it, should reset him, if not R.I.P.

have you tried switching the button to "ON"? I know that seems so simple, but that's what was wrong with our Furby. There is a slide-type button near where you put the batteries in. Options are "ON" "OFF" and "TRY ME".

There should be a small hole on the bottom of the furby. inside the hole is a small button. use the tip of a screw or something of that sort to push the button. this is the reset button. make sure battery connectors are free of any corrosion. if there any you can use sandpaper fo clean them.
