Power a Smile this Holiday with Hasbro Furby Boom & Duracell Giveaway! #PGmom

Posted by on November 25, 2013 in Featured, Giveaways | 86 comments

T’was the morning of Christmas and all through the house

Excitement that brewed, unable to douse.

Squeals of delight could be heard all around

Until the unveiling of battery-powered toys

that will send Daddy store-bound.

Okay, I’m not a poet and I know it.  I do know that one of the most disappointing things is receiving an amazing gift that you really wanted …only to find out that it required batteries and had that “Batteries Not Included” message on the package.  As a kid, I remember the feeling of wanting to play with a new toy, only to realize that I had to wait until we got batteries for it.

This year, we’re going to make sure to have batteries ready for gifts we give Little One and her cousins.

One of THE most sought after toys of the season is none other than Furby Boom.

Little One made sure I saw that she circled Furby Boom in this year’s Sears Toy Shop catalogue.

Hasbro FurbyBoom-800x800

For more info on FURBY BOOM:

MSRP: $74.99 + $5.99 (4AA batteries) = $80.98
(Age: 6 years & up/Approximate Retail Price: $74.99/SKUs: A4342 & A4343)

This new generation of Furby critters has new and exciting features! Furby has a mind of its own, and the way you treat your Furby will shape its personality. The more fun you have with Furby, the better! It speaks more English the more you play with it. Tickle your Furby, talk to it, and feed it with your finger. Play some tunes, pull some tails and party on with your Furby Boom creature!You can also download a free app to have a Furby Boom adventure and translate Furbish. Take care of your Furby, get virtual eggs and hatch and raise the Furblings! The Furby app is optional and works with iPad, iPod touch and iPhone with iOS 5.0 or later (devices sold separately). The app is not compatible with prior Furby generations. Check Furby.com for device compatibility. Requires 4 “AA” batteries (not included).  Furby and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.
iPad, iPod touch and iPhone are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

Remember what I said about batteries?

Little One would be so disappointed if she received Furby and couldn’t play with him right away.  This year we remembered Duracell batteries!

Duracell Quantum, the world’s most advanced alkaline battery. With its revolutionary Hi-Density Core and proprietary PowerCheck power indicator, Duracell Quantum has been engineered to deliver the performance consumers demand, offering long-lasting power when it’s needed the most.


Whether it’s powering children’s toys or first responders’ radios, you can always count on Duracell’s most powerful premium-tier battery when it just has to work.

Duracell DURALOCK technology locks in power for up to 10 years in storage!  How incredible is that?  I know Little  One is concerned with battery life for her toys, but I’m thinking Duracell DURALOCK technology is important for emergency kits. When Hubby was on the fire department and First Response team, Duracell was the trusted battery of choice. If you think of it, when it comes to emergencies, you don’t need a flashlight 6 months of the year, but when you need it, you need it for a whole night.

I’m practical. When in the throes of the holidays, I think of emergencies since we sometimes lose power on the farm when in a bad snow storm or wind storm…or even when the temperature drops considerably.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, Duracell and Hasbro has given us the chance to test Duracell Quantum on Little One’s favourite things – TOYS!  We got to pick one of three fun-filled gift packs for our little reviewer at home.  The gift pack selections included: Furby, Kre-O Cityville, Magic Jinn and Big Hugs Elmo!  Can you guess which one Little One chose?

Furby Boom, of course! It was a toss up between Furby and Elmo, but ultimately, Furby was the chosen one.
