Furby (from fura 'pine' + by 'village') is a locality in Badelunda parish, Västerås Municipality, Sweden. It was previously a parish of its own, but now only a church ruin remains. Furby is a few kilometers north of Lake Mälaren and near Anundshögen, the ship burial mound of legendary Swedish king Anund.

Legal issues[edit]

Furby was forced to change their name in Sweden to "Furbee" as it could get mixed up with the town.
