Flutterbye Fairy Really Flies!

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Spin Master has been blazing the trail of fun for quite awhile now. They really do have a great line of games and toys for the kids. Recently we received a toy from them to review. When I opened it, and my son saw a doll, he said no waaaaaaaay, nuh uh, he wasn't reviewing a doll!  

Mmm hmm... I knew once that doll started to fly, he'd be in the room, and I was ohhh so right. :)

Flutterbye Fairy from Spin Master

Flutterbye Fairy sits on a base that also serves as a launching pad and a charger. There is a light on the front of it that will indicate by color, when she has a full charge. A direction booklet is included that will tell you what the different light colors mean.

If you purchase the flying doll for a gift, be sure to get the batteries!
Flutterbye Fairy takes 6 'AA' batteries.

This doll is really fun! She gets everyone in the room excited about how she's flying around (even the adults). ;) Flutterbye Fairy takes 6 AA batteries to run, so if you're picking one of these up for a Christmas present, be sure to buy and include those so your gift recipient doesn't have to wait to give her a go :)

Flutterbye Fairy. Isn't she cute?

Flutterbye Fairy is a pretty little thing. She's got bright eyes and a happy smile, and she's dressed in traditional fairy costume. This is the Tinkerbell version. There are many other dolls to choose from as well.

The base is the charger.

Charging her is easy, simply plug the cord attached to the base into the designated port on the doll. It takes about 30 minutes for her to get a full charge.

There's my son who said he wasn't going to review a doll!!
Mm hmm,
clearly you can see he's loving it. ;)

Here is a picture of the doll in flight. She went pretty high, and my son whose curiosity got the better of him when he heard me sending her in the air, is controlling how she moves. When my husband came in the room and gave it a try, because he is taller than little man, he got her to fly all the way to the ceiling.

You control her motions with your hand. She moves where your hand moves.

You simply put your hand underneath her to direct how and where she goes. Cool, right?

We've packed our doll back up nice and pretty in her package, and today she'll go, along with a group of other toys and items we've acquired, to a Toys 4 Tots box. I'm super happy about it too because I know she's going to make a little girl very, very happy on Christmas morning.

If you've got a little girl on your shopping list this year, and still need to pick up a present...this is a wonderful gift idea!

Keep your eyes open for Flutterbye Fairy in the toy section of your favorite store, or find her online.

  18. I will never be able to look at these flying dolls without thinking of those poor little girls who got one on Christmas Day. They immediately started playing with it and it flew right into the fireplace. Have you seen that video? It's hilarious and heartbreaking all rolled into a 10 second video :)

  33. I love that your son would NEVER review a doll--that's great--my youngest is a boy and he gets into his sisters' stuff all the time. This looks like great fun and I do need to pick up one more girls' gift--so perfect idea!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Reminds me of my son playing with his sisters' Barbies in the bathtub. He'd fly them like planes and crash their heads into the walls.

  39. That looks like such a fun toy, for a girl or a boy. We don't pay much attention to gender when it comes to toys or entertainment. It really isn't important as long as you enjoy it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. My son would love this! Love how you made it gender neutral :)
