Flutterbye Fairy

 Flutterbye Fairy

Sample received for review. All opinions are my own.

I first heard about Flutterbye Fairy by Spin Master from my daughter who had seen the advertisement on TV and was so excited about it.  She kept telling me it was magic.  So when Spin Master offered to send us a fairy to review I had to say yes. We received the Purple Stardust fairy.  When our fairy arrived I was immediately impressed by its looks.  She is beautiful and even has glitter in her wings.  Perhaps some fairy dust…

 The charging base for Flutterbye Fairy requires 6 AA batteries which are not included.  After inserting the batteries we set her on the base and plugged the charging cord into her skirt.  The power switch on the fairy is turned off at this point and the base it turned on.

pic3

 There is a light on the base that changes throughout the charging time and will let you know when it is fully charged.  The instructions also indicate that it takes 30 minutes for a full charge.

We then unplugged the fairy and turned her power on as well.  You press the button on the base and she magically does take flight. I found it hard to control her at first.  There is a definite learning curve, and we found a couple tricks to make it easier for us.  We found it easier to set the base on a table, bed or other elevated surface instead of the floor and start her from there.  We then discovered the easiest way for my daughter to start it was to hold onto the fairy’s feet and then press the button on the base.  Once the fairy’s skirt is spinning she releases her.

Once she is flying you can put your hand out under her and she floats above it.  Raise or lower your hand and she flies up or down as well.  The fairy crashed many times.  She has hit the walls, floors, and many nearby objects and still looks great.  I was very impressed with how durable she is.  The instructions include what to do if a wing falls off and I thought we would be having to put her back together often.  We have not had to once.

I had concerns at first that my daughter, who will be five in January, is too young for this toy.  It really did not take her long to figure out what works for her, and she absolutely loves her fairy.  One thing I did find disappointing is the length of playtime before needing to charge her again.  She gets approximately five minutes of play before needing another charge.

pic7

I love the idea of the flying fairies.  My daughter already had fairy stickers and quotes on her walls.  What little girl would not love to have her own fairy that can magically fly?  I can see why she is on many of the top toy lists for this Christmas.
