Fashion Trends That Didnt Survive the 90s
What if Skynet from the Terminator films had brought toys instead of machines to life? Well, that s essentially the Furby, a plaything that appeared a foot closer to you every time you blinked until it was on you with a kitchen knife. What made the Furby truly terrifying was not only its ability to learn and adapt but that it could communicate with other Furbies, allowing you to watch a violent revolution slowly come together on your own bedroom table. In fact, had the toys been around just long enough to learn both weaponry and parliamentary procedure we would have wound up with a Planet of the Apes scenario in which enslaved humans would be muttering, I can t believe I m being whipped by a six inch Gremlins knock off.
