No, this is not us doing a flashback, and reading a Christmas news story from 14 years ago.

According to toy industry experts, one of the biggest toys this holiday season is . . . the FURBY.  Yes, the same creepy, talking Furby that the media claimed kids loved back in the late '90s.

Hasbro released an updated Furby this year . . . with less-creepy eyes . . . and of course, a companion iPhone app.  And even though the Furbys are absurdly priced at $54 and up, they're already sold out at Walmart and running low on Amazon.
