This fanciful toy is one of the best imaginative and magical experiences a child can enjoy for such a reasonable price.
The Flutterbye Flying Fairy is a special doll designed to take magical flights suspended in the air just like a real fairy!
The only direction the Fairy needs is gained by your child’s hovering hand beneath her when she is in flight.
When it is time for the beautiful fairy to take a rest, Flying Fairy comes with a stand for her to sit in when not taking one of her magical, mid-air flights. All your child needs to do to take a magical trip with the beautiful fairy is push the button on the display stand that will then activate the Fairy’s wings and launch.
Once she is in the air, she will follow the directions of the child’s hand held underneath the floating toy. If your child’s hand moves up, the Fairy moves up as well and vice-versa – all without the hand ever coming in physical contact with the enchanted fairy.

What We Like About Flutterbye Flying Fairy
This Flying Fairy is a fun and magical way to teach a child to maintain gentle, calm movements by keeping their hand in place under the Fairy to direct its movement.
The slow and gentle movements encouraged in order to operate the Fairy’s flight mimics the soft movements a child might need to learn in order to engage with younger siblings or other babies as well as small or young animals. Patience is rewarded when it causes the Fairy to move in whatever direction your child may wish it to fly.
What Customers Are Saying About Flutterbye Flying Fairy
Many consumers appreciate the simple operation of just needing to press one button on the display case to start up the Flying Fairy and get her off on another magically enchanted flight. The charging process is a bit more complicated as the toy will not charge if the start-up button is not set in the “off” position, but children can easily learn how to do this properly which gives the toy an added educational benefit.
When the Flutterbye Fairy is launched, it actually goes quite high for lift off before settling at a lower altitude for your child to manipulate with hand movements. This makes the recommendation to only use this toy indoors very important. If launched outside, it can go even higher and be quickly caught by a draft of wind and blown on a house roof or into a tree-top. Indoors the Fairy can be caught be A/C vents blowing air so keep that in mind when determining where to place the charging/display stand.
All-in-all, the Flutterbye Flying Fairy is a magical toy straight from the fairy tales that is sure to engage your child’s imagination for hours of playtime fun.
