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.
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.
For more info on FURBY BOOM:
MSRP: $74.99 + $5.99 (4AA batteries) = $80.98

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.
