When I was in my pre teenage years, one of the biggest fads and must haves was a fur covered electronic robot called a Furby. A Furby was not just another toy, this was a toy which was capable of interacting with its owner. All of my friends had one and they always took them everywhere they went.

I also noticed that the Furby’s are located almost in the center of the image so that they are pretty much eye level. Also that the background images are much darker.
