This is the cheapest I've seen the furbies online if you are wanting to source one locally.

I ordered two from here in the new style. Amazon I believe is cheaper though.

Kmart is cheaper for furby's.

I brought DS a furby online for his birthday $100 with postage.
I got DD and my brother one for christmas from kmart $65 each (or $79 off sale)/

Yes Kmart are cheaper but none have any in stock.

OP do you know what the difference of the two different priced ones are?

They just seem to be a different colour /style. I am wondering if they were able to get more stock of some colours more than others and that is the reason for the price difference ?

I had tried Kmart but had no luck getting one there either. Target and Big W don't seem to have any as well near me.

I was hoping to get one for a birthday very shortly.....but have had no luck.

Looks like I may have a very disappointed child sad.gif

Didn't want to order from o/s and was worried it may be delayed in the post.

Mine shipped from Amazon and I had it within 7 days of ordering. My Furby's shipped DHL, the rest shipped I-parcel (and turned up today!). The Furby';s I bought were cheaper even with postage than the Kmart/Target sale prices AND they were the new duo coloured ones original.gif

I am not 100% sure what they do either laughing2.gif
We had a play with one in Toyworld and the kids liked the way they felt better than the Fijit. (also liked the cute factor)

I got mine pretty quickly from Amazon too. Worked out to be about $62 each (including shipping). Pretty happy about that!

I ordered one from Amazon too and it worked out to be $74.

Furby was $54. Postage $20. Still cheaper than buying it from Australia and you get new colors not out here.

But I see some have gone up in price since I ordered. I got Cotton Candy that I ordered is now $79. It's getting late to order from Amzon now.. estimated arrival time they are giving is 13-24 of dec.

Mumfirst you got a good deal. How much was your postage?

Shipping for me was $16.03 for 2. Sometimes it's easier to purchase mulitple items...I think 1 or 2 and even 3 would have cost between $15-$20 for shipping together.

Try Kmart today or tomorrow. I just got a call to say the Furby's I rainchecked came in today (the woman I originally rainchecked with told me they might not come in until after Christmas and even then I might not get one....which is why I went to Amazon instead)

Yes but their RRP is $120!!
Amazon have them for $54-60 and Kmart's Raincheck was $64 (I think?)

So Mighty Ape seem Mighty $$ Their discounted price is still more than elsewhere!

I paid $20 postage for 1 furby. My mistake. I think it cost more because it's coming from a secondary seller and shipped from Amazon. I checked to see how much is would be if I got one 'sold and shipped by Amazon' and postage was just over $9. Too late now but I blame that on DH because he was annoying me at the time I made the purchase and I didn't double check it was sold/shipped by  Amazon! I still got it cheaper than they are selling them now though.

I got one today.....well DH did. From Myer.

ToysRUs wouldn't ship them to me but Amazon would.
These were the new two tone ones not the older ones. Possibly not able to ship the original ones as they are released here already.
Kmart might have them though. They got a new shipment yesterday and if there are any left after rainchecks they will be on the shelves.

I just ordered one from Amazon and their delivery is guaranteed before Christmas.  Paid $54 and shipping was $9. Amazon have never let me down! I have ordered heaps from em this Christmas and everything has arrived within a week and been shipped the same day.

I got one from Kmart, I couldn't find them anywhere so I asked apparently they keep them (at the Store I went to anyway) out the back as they have had people layby them and not collect them while others have been desperate for one, I was able to choose between all colours and paid $65. I was really shocked to see them at David Jones the other day for $100  ohmy.gif
