for those who need written steps:


You will need:

  • A Furby
  • hot glue sticks
  • flame
  • a freezer
  • non-acetone nail polish remover
  • a printer and photo paper (optional)
  • cardstock and art supplies
  • glue

Steps:

  1. Melt one end of the hot glue stick over the flame and press it onto the eyechip (careful not to get the eyelashes nor the whites of the eye.)
  2. Hold the gluestick in place until it is cool (should only take a minute or two.) Once able to stay up on its own, put your Furby in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  3. Once 20 minutes has passed, remove Furby from the freezer and tug on the gluesticks. Make sure you are holding down the whites of the eye so as to not rip out the entire eye. If the glue comes off without the eyechip, repeat steps 1-3.
  4. Clean the paint off of the eyechip with Non acetone nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol.
  5. Print out your new eyechip design onto photo paper or draw the design on your cardstock. (sized correctly: see tips section)
  6. paint a layer of glue onto the paper and stick on the blank eyechips. Once dry cut around the chip to free them.
  7. Dab some glue into the Furby eyechip holes and attach the chips! You're done!

-If you're making eyechips digitally, make sure you draw them large and then shrink them to size, otherwise they will be pixelated. The ideal size for adult Furby eyechips is 53px, and 45px for babies.

-Want to preserve the original Furby eyechips? You can buy blank ones online! Look for 14 mm glass or plastic cabochons for adult Furbys, or 12 mm for babies!

-You can buy premade chipsmade for dolls to use. Blythe doll eyechips fit adult Furbys and Pulip eyechips fit babies.
