Where Do Furbys Come From?
As a bit of a briefing, this post is mostly pure speculation and theorization. If you have any additional ideas or theories, feel free to send an ask or reply to this post! Now, let’s get right into it:
These furbys as we all well know, originate from Furbyland, a collection of cloud islands trailing about our earthian skies. These furbys were capable of flight by their ears, and came down to earth to make friends and chat it up with the locals. Being that their home was in the clouds, they might have once lived in a state of constant daylight, hence their fear of the dark and general light sensitivity. They likely know the least about humans and have had the least amount of social interaction with them, considering their general lack of knowledge in human languages. Hence, why they ‘learn’ their human’s language along the way.
These furbys originated from sea-based islands, also earthian, and though speculation may have assumed they were the evolution of 90′s furbys, it’s likely that they’re a subspecies of furby, considering they have their own ancient monuments and historical transcripts that don’t quite match up with the 90′s furbys’ history. These furbys were known for possessing predominantly mammal-like features. They also possibly never saw the sky as closely as their 90′s cousins did. These furbys still hold their history near and dear to their heart, and may even be a bit homesick, due to their storytelling of their old home.
2006 Funky Furby:
Based on canon from the movie, I’d say the funky furby is the result of island furbys embracing human culture and music. In one particular scene from the film, the younger island furbys start imitating the scenes and vocals they see on television, so this may be what inspired funky furbys to become so musically charged.
Earth and Furby <CONNECT> World
AI furbys created by connect furbys, to test human interaction and to learn of the environment before the connects made the whole “take me to your leader” introduction. These furbys change drastically due to specific interaction, as a way to test the waters in regards to how humans themselves would interact to such different and unique creatures. The boom/crystal models are an upgraded system that essentially introduces humans to more beyond-basic personalities, and also hints at their own biological makeup (egg laying). These furbys already have a lot of human-centric thought put into their design, based on what the connects have learned through watching and waiting.
Furby <CONNECT> World
These furbys seem to stray completely from any ties to earth, rather possessing their own world (perhaps planet?). They seem to don more alienistic qualities, having antennas on their heads that they use to communicate, sleep, and emote. They don’t seem to personally feel the triggers of their antenna (outside of the app at least), and as seen in the app, it is something they grow later after birth. Possibly non-organic tech? Still can’t fly with their ears, though considering their home it makes sense that they wouldn’t need the aid of flight. They’re likely the chubbiest furby as well, and considering their environment, (check out that ice cream cone forest behind the toilet) there’s no doubt as to why.
