Hello everyone!

It's been a very long time since I've chatted on here, I'm really sorry about that. 
After stopping AdoptaFurby.com, myself and Weecoo started on another business followed by another business. We didn't stop following what we enjoyed and are now lucky enough to have two shops (one of which is in Covent Garden!)

In Weecoo's office we have a little shrine to AdoptaFurby, we never forgot how it helped us learn about passion and what an exciting experience retail can be.
We never had children as stated in various places but the pressure of having so many staff did mean that our time has been restricted and hence AdoptaFurby got filed away.

A lot of you may have seen that the website went down back in December. Without me knowing, ongoing payment for the URL failed and the URL actually got removed from my account. 

Another company purchased the URL and wouldn't give it up without a large payment. It was difficult to know what to do but looking on here I could see that the forum was still active and I'm very proud that the little website that myself and Weecoo started so long ago had inspired so many people to chat and communicate about something that they loved. I bit my lip and paid the largest amount that I have ever paid for a URL.

And so AdoptaFurby.com is back....

Some of it still doesn't work, but I would really like to know what any of you would like to see. You're the reason this website is here.

(Furby Dr) Rob xx

Hello Dr. Rob,

Congratulations on your business success and thank you so much for getting Adoptafurby.com online again!
I’m Furbettini and just recently joined this Forum after being a guest for a very long time.
Do you think you would have the time to get the actual Adoption Center up and running again? I understand if that’s too much to ask given your lack of time...maybe there could be a different type of Adoption Center, where forum members can put their Furbys up for adoption?

Hi Dr. Rob!!

I was just wondering what happened to you guys. I'm so happy the website is back online!! I'd love to see the adoption center and games online again! I think an adoption center between users would be very good like Furbettini said. 

P.S. Thank you so much for coming back!!

Hi I'm Jake Alexander but you can call me Jake :) I'm 16 and have more furbys than years I've been alive. I have 19 furbys and am on the quest for all 1998 furby babies. Feel free to contact me on discord or instagram as I love to make friends :) I'll be forever salty that the furby baby buddies were never produced :'(

That is all you need to know :)

Hello again! Thank you again for all you've done to found this community for us. You've provided a valuable resource that might have otherwise never existed, and united us in ways that we might have never been united before. I, too, love the idea of the user-generated adoption center, so if there's any way we could help realize that, I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say that we'd be more than happy to help!

There are no Furbys available in the catalog at this time.

Hey Dr. Rob, great to hear from you again. I was at Covent Garden years ago, but if I'm ever in the UK again I'll stop by!
The name's 77, Shelby 77...

That's Gu-Narley dude!
