What toy was banned at a number of U.S. military bases in 1999?
Furbys were all the rage in the late nineties, and became the must-have Christmas toy in 1999. However, the cute and cuddly pet toy, wasn't popular with everyone. Not long after the holidays, headlines around the country began labeling the creature as a national security risk. Soon, the Furby was officially banned by the National Security Agency, the FAA, and the Pentagon. These agencies were concerned that the fluffy, bug-eyed toy could be used to record and repeat classified information. Soon after, a spokesman for the toy company issued a statement announcing, "Furby is not a spy."
