I also heard JT is bad, and all my 3 JTs are problemtic (too slow and/or really creaking gears).
I don't remember having a problem with others.

I don't even know what any of these terms mean!

if you look at the bottom of your Furbs, on the battery cover (more specifically in the bottom-right corner) you can find two letters (sometimes in a circle, sometimes just the letters). these same 2 letters are present on the white tag that is sewn into Furby's fur (on the back side). the letters refer to the factory they were manufactured by.
I don't know how many factories made Furbies, but there are at least 4 (the ones I can think of right now: GE, WT, RL and JT). unfortunately, some (JT specifically) are rumoured to have done quite neglectful work, their Furbs are more likely to have problems than those made by other factories.

To be honest, I didn't understand it either.
But now I get it, and I examined 5 of my Furbys, who mostly come from WT, with RL right behind, and only one from GE.
That was quite interesting to know. ^_^

I just checked mine and they were about evenly divided between WT & RL with one JT. The JT is Sunnie, a non-working Furby I adopted from the Adoption Centre a couple of years ago. Another member fixed her for me and said she was pretty sick. I also had 3 that had CO15A on them.

dunno. they must be abbreviations of the names of the factories that made those Furbs.

I think it's probably some kind of code. It's probably not the abbreviation of the name of the factory, but just a code saying which factory the Furb came from. I'm also a doll collector and that happens a lot with dolls. They'll have a bunch of numbers and only the expert doll collectors know what it means. The really knowledgeable doll collectors can tell you what year your doll was made, by which company, and where she/he was made just by knowing the numbers on the back of their neck. I can't do it personally, but more power to the experts. BTW, what country are Furbys made in?
I rescue unloved toys from thrift stores and yard sales.

ah, I see :)

mostly (if not only) in China, as far as I'm concerned. I don't remember seeing any other country mentioned on the battery cover, but this got me interested now, I'll check it tomorrow (now it's too late to start investigating, it just turned midnight).

They may mean something else. Possibly the code refers to motor brands? I've had Jt furbys and they always had motor fails. Lukily jt is not common. I don't have any jt right now. All mine are Ge and Rl.
