Title: Furbies Without Eyelashes
Description: ...are they originally like that?

I have been wondering about this for quite a long time, so I chose to ask it here :)
so I have seen some Furbies without eyelashes (and I also own one - he came to me used so this doesn't mean anything), they are not that common but they are definitely around. as my Furby who doesn't have eyelashes is my first Furby (so I didn't have any other to compare with) and he's a male one I haven't thought of him not having eyelashes as something strange. but later when I got more Furbies and I have also seen more and more pics and videos of other Furbs it started to interest me why most of them have eyelashes where my very first one (and some others - not ones I own) doesn't have any; if they wanted to make this a special feature it would have been more logical for the ones with eyelashes to be the special ones - and I started to suspect that all Furbies have eyelashes originally, it's only his (and some others') that got lost somehow.
do you think I might be right? or do you actually know Furbs who didn't have eyelashes right from the start?
thanks for your answers,

I think that all furbies have eyelashes, some just have lost them :(
I have couple furbies without eyelashes and couple which have very poor ones, they are nearly falling off. So I think they get lost very easily, especially if furby has been previously owned/used by young child :)

Every brand new Furby had eyelashes.
Their eyelashes very commonly fell out during play or storage.
It's not unusual to find second hand Furbys with missing eyelashes.

I wish the manufacturer sold parts, lots of Furbys missing eyelashes

even though I have never tried it I think they are not that difficult to substitute with human fake eyelashes - these are a bit bigger but are easy to cut to the needed length and shape. I often check these and I also plan to buy some that may be used for Furbs if some of mine will be in need of new lashes. as for Koh-Koh, I like him this way, being eyelash-less suits him fine, so I don't plan to re-do them for him.
but in general, yeah, you're right, it would overall be nice if they sold spare parts, not only eyelashes but, for example, speakers - or anything a Furby could miss. once I saw a jester Furby who was missing an eye :( he was part of a huge interactive toy collection put on auction together, so I couldn't buy it (it would have been expensive to buy the whole pack, and also difficult to re-sell all the other things in it - the Jester would have been the only one I wanted from the lot). but I did watch the auction and dreamed of buying it (up to the point where it got just too expensive), and I was planning to make that thingy for him that pirates who are missing an eye wear - he would have been a pirate Furby ^^
I wonder where he is now and whether his buyers took care of him or just threw him out... (I tried to contact the buyer but I couldn't) :(

That would never happen because Furbys are unfortunately now long out-of-production. They are over 10 years old.
Since you're very unlikely to find parts from other toys that would fit a Furby's structure, practically the only way to find replacement parts (like eyes and motors and speakers) is to get a donor Furby. ;_;
