When I was a kid and saw Peter Pan for the first time my favorite character in the movie was Tinkerbell. After watching the movie I would sit in my room and imagine having Tinkerbell as my friend. How she would fly around my room and land on my shoulder, keeping me company day and night. Of course I knew she was not real and just a character from a story but it didn’t stop my imagination from running wild. I even remember going to Disney World with my parents and getting a small Tinkerbell doll. I would play with the doll and pretend she was my own little fairy.
As I got older I really enjoyed any movies or stories that included a fairy. Whether it was Tinkerbell, The Tooth Fairy, or Fairy Godmothers from Cinderella I loved them all. Maybe it was because they were so tiny, cute and lovable. Even though I had doll fairies, books, and movies I always wanted something with more interaction.
Well many years later now that I’m and adult they finally came out with a toy that is very fairy like. They are called Flutterbye Fairies and they are made by Spin master. They are actually toy fairies that will fly in the air and can be guided with your assistance. When I saw the promo for this toy I thought to myself, finally a toy company has answered my wishes. Maybe there was a toy fairy after all that answered my childhood requests.
After seeing at the Time to Play Mag show that these Fairies are one of most wanted Holiday Toys for 2013 Kids 6+ can fly their own fairies with just the palm of their hand, I was reading some reviews about the Flutterbye Fairies online I had to check it out for myself. Wait I guess I should say I had to get it for my daughter so she could check it out.
When it arrived the other day in the mail I was very excited to try it out but had to wait patiently for my daughter to come home from school. After she got back from school we opened it up together and read the instructions (The instructions were very easy to follow). After putting in the required batteries (It requires 6 AA batteries which are not included with the toy) and charging it up the Flutterbye Fairy was ready to go.
My daughter pressed the launch button and like magic the Flutterbye Fairy flew became airborne and started flying around the room.
The first couple of flights only lasted a couple of seconds before the Flutterbye Fairy smashed into a wall or ceiling and came crashing down to the ground. It wasn’t until we watched a video online that my daughter was able to begin mastering the Flutterbye Fairies flight. See the Flutterbye Fairy in action and instructions how to fly it from the pro 🙂
It was great watching here guide the Fairy through the air all around our living room and kitchen. I have to say the Flutterbye Fairy is really cute. When I was a kid I couldn’t have imagined that a toy like this would ever be possible. And now the idea of a little fairy flying around my house is no longer a fantasy but a reality for my daughter and I to enjoy. I know that it’s not a real fairy, but I am going to allow myself to live in a bit of denial for now.
The Flutterbye Fairy suggested retail price is $34.99 and can be purchased at major stores like Toys R Us, Target. I did however noticed that Amazon sells it for $27.44 with free shipping (Prime account required).
The set includes a Flying Fairy, a launcher that also is a charging cradle, and an instruction guide. For indoor use only.
Suitable for fairy lovers ages 6 and up.
