This year I've noticed there is hardly a mention of toys on my kid's Christmas lists,
a sad reminder that they are ‘growing up'.
But not as sad as this Furby I photographed inside the research lab at the Hasbro toy company. Here the toys undergo quality assurance tests to simulate consumer usage. It’s all done in a well-meaning attempt to prepare the toys for the horrors they’re likely to face during your standard holiday vacation week. Merry Christmas Furby!
