Every so often a new hot toy explodes onto the global market with a furry. Think of Tickle Me Elmo, Nintendo and Webkinz. They dominate the market they are in. Recently a new toy has come about, Furberries. The mere name itself could leave one guessing what exactly this may be.

These hot toys come in five scents, strawberry, grape, tangerine, pineapple and the latest cherry. Then Furberries are also modeled after certain types of pets. The types of pets they are made to resemble are a cat or kitten a puppy or dog and a bear or cub. The uniqueness of these cute plush toys is really starting to generate a buzz amongst the youth.

Other features of this toy are their ability to roll into a ball. The first thing that comes to mind is the once popular 80's toy, popples. Unless you are a child of the 80's you'll probably not even know what those are as well. Furberries toys are designed for children ages two and up until about age eight.

Although Furberries are a hot new toy, they may have limited staying power. Modern toys such have Russ shining stars and Webkinz offer children more interactivity. They simply lack the ability to create your own virtual world, that opens up new realms of imagination. This is where Webkinz and Shining stars capatilize. That being said their scented features will offer much joy and fun for the younger child as afore mentioned.

The manufacture of Furberries could make an impact by starting a cartoon after the Furberries characters. However, to be effective they must consider branching out their production line with various types of pets. Reguardless of their staying power on the market, furberries are a unique toy that will keep the children happy for the next couple of years.

When I was growing up I never dreamed of scented toys. My biggest conquest as a child was crushing GI Joe action figure with a brick. Now a scented plush doll that can roll into a ball is on the market, it reminds me that the toy market is changing rapidly. Each year we are seeing new modern toys that can do more, allow more interactivity and take kids into another dimension. Furberries offer us a unique glimpse into the future of deeper connecting toys for our children.
