Pop’s loves fairies. so when we the chance came to review the flying fairy by flutterbye from Spin Master, I jumped at the chance. The Flutterbye fairy is the only flying fairy that can really fly. It comes equipt with a display stand, which charges the fairy and helps launch the fairy into flight.
The stand takes 6 AA batteries, which were not included. It would have been nice to have the first set included.
Now, this fairy is a little hard to get to grips with at first, however they do have this great website, Flutterbye Fairies, which is a great tool when you get a little stuck in getting the fairy to fly. This was a great source of information when getting her to fly.
When you have got to grips with the whole flying thing, it is surprisingly easy to use. Simply click her into the base, plug the little cable into her and let her charge. When she is fully charged, unplug her and press the button on the stand to watch her fly.
Pop’s was amazed that she got to guide her around the room using her hands.
Each fairy has 5 minutes of flying time for 25 minutes of charging, which is pretty good, although I think my impatient four year old would beg to differ!
There are three different colours of the flutterbye fairies to choose from, so something for everyone.
With a little bit of practise and patience, Pops loves her Flutterbye fairy and has gotten used to the steps needed to get her up in the air! We have been playing with her for a fair few weeks now and she is still going strong.
A Flying Fairy By Flutterbye retails at around £34.99, which I fully expected. However if you have a fairy loving child and want to create a little bit of magic, then this really is the perfect toy.
