New Furby Toys for 2012

2012 furbyYou know, my Uncle used to always say, if you wear something long enough, it is bound to come back in style.  Of course, he was talking about his tan leather jacket from 1977.  BUT, the same could be said about the new Furby toys for 2012…except you didn’t wear them.  Maybe you were like many back in the 90’s, and bought a few from eBay and stored them in your closet or attic.

I’m not sure how much the old Furby’s increased in value, but what can be said about the new Furby is that they will certainly be a popular item this coming holiday season, for a couple reasons.  One being nostalgia (yeah, suck it up, part of the 90s is from 20 years ago), and the other is, well, kids demand stuff like this.  Not sure why, but having kids I just know they do.

Walmart is selling these new guys and according to their website, this is a “Top Toy.”  This time around for 2012, the Furby comes in many new colors: Pink, Orange, Yellow, Teal, FURBY, Black, White, Purple.

Also, plenty of accessories can be found such as a Furby Chair.  Yes…a chair…because your Furby that just sits there anyways needs a chair to relax in. 

For your Furby on the go needs, here is the Furby Sling Bag…(Billy Bob Thorton not included).  I guess if these things could get heavy at times. Well, I guess you can use it for more than just carrying your Furby around.  Kids can also carry their PHONE or MP3 player, sold separately of course.  Oh, also, this comes with a Furby headset so that it can pretend to listen to your Justin Bieber MP3s.

Blog post inspiration – Google Insights

20121008-165346.jpg

It’s that time of year to start writing about seasonal things such as costume ideas, thanksgiving recipes and even Christmas ideas for 2012. But let’s be honest, sometimes it is just tough to start writing anything…even if the post ideas are obvious. Many times I find myself getting out of a slump by simply writing something totally different than what I was planning.

Back when I was writing celebrity gossip articles for gather.com, I found my inspiration through google zeitgeist. Things have changed since then, so now I like to get my inspiration from google trends, also known as google Insights. Upon visiting the site you can click the hot searches links to see what the latest buzz is today. Today’s inspiration happens to be the following:

  • Yankees
  • the steelers
  • Columbus Day

Go figure that a popular search would be Columbus Day on a day that happens to be Columbus Day. Well there you go, perfect writing inspiration fodder. I mean, come on, how many time have you hears somebody say “Columbus didn’t discover America!” Here’s your chance to write something somebody would actually read.

Hopefully after this little exercise, your brain will be inspired to get back on track to writing something about what the coolest costume ideas for 2012 are, with of course your affiliate link embedded in the post!
