What trendy stuffed toy was banned from US military bases in 1999?

The Furby was banned from military base and intelligence offices. Besides sitting there and trying to look cute, it had the bad habit of listening, recording, and repeating what was said. It did not care if the conversation was to be secret or not. Officials were afraid the Furby could be used for spying, so Furby was given his walking papers.
