Phoebe is one of the first fake 2012 Furby's that were released.
They were very commonly sold in four colors: white, red, black, and blue. Some, however, might have mixed colors on their fur or even different colored zig zags on their body; the Phoebe's with mixed colors in their fur and the ones with zig zags on their fur were released after the release of the Furby Boom.
They say crazy, grumpy, normal, and talkative personalities. If you press their tails, they can repeat what you say in a high-pitched voice. They shake from left to right while moving their mouths when talking. Phoebe's speak Furbish like the real Furby's. They also speak another language which is Mandarin according to its box.
- In the instruction manual for the Phoebe's and on their boxes, you will realize that Furby's language, "Furbish" is referred to as "Phoebe" instead.
- Some Phoebe's are repackaged with the Furby logo on their boxes.
- If you were to translate "Furby" from Chinese (菲比精灵) using Google Translate, it would translate to "Phoebe Elf". This could be reason why some 2012 Furby fakes are sold under the name "Phoebe".
