Furby Fakes include toys and merchandise manufactured to look, sound or act like a Furby. Furby fakes are known to be of very poor quality, and may be broken while in new, unused condition. Many of these knockoffs speak a made up language like Furby does. Many of these made up languages are just remixed versions of Furbish, the language common to all Furby Creatures. Furby Fakes also inspired the creation of the purple "Furby Original" tag to be put on all 1998 Furby's made after February, 1999.
