How To Determine How Much Your Furby is Worth
There are a couple different things you should think about when it comes to determining how much your Furby is worth.
Condition. You need to determine if the Furby still functions the way it originally came. Also be sure to inspect the fur to make sure there aren’t any stains and that the plastic parts are clean. You can use disinfectant wipes to clean your Furby’s ears, beak, and feet. For brushing the hair, you should use a non-plastic bristle brush to brush every part of his/her body. Be careful about using harsh stain removers to clean the fur. Start with a little water to see if that will work before moving on to harsher chemicals.
Common condition issues to look for are:
Broken functions and/or sensors
Moves but no sound, mute
Issues with the battery compartment
Scuffs on the plastic
Contents. Does your Furby come with the original box? In what condition is the box? The value of your Furby is going to change depending on the condition of the toy itself, whether or not it comes in the box, and what the condition the box is in if it’s included.
You should also check to see if the original tag is still on the Furby and if any of the original documentation is still included in the box. Some Furbies also included little accessories such as spoons and brushes.
Research. Once you have determined the condition and contents of your Furby, its time to do some research on eBay to find out how much you can sell your Furby for.
