When Fairies come to life!

If you can see with a child’s eye there is a world full of colour, joy and wonder to be seen.  Children and some adults believe in the fairy realm which reminds us to keep this joy and creativity alive.

There are plenty of stories, cartoons, movies, books and toys that revolve around the fairy realm, however for the first time ever Spin Master has launched a fairy that can really fly!!! There are not tricks or remote control consoles attached.  Flutterbye Fairies can actually fly!!! 

Flutterbye Fairies
float in the air; they will drift downwards but can be keep flying by placing your hands under them and gently gesturing upwards.  Do you wonder how? Well, the Flutterbye fairies have a fan motor and use the same technology as the Air Hogs Vectron Wave, but adapted to work around the body of the fairy. Rather than using a remote control like lots of flying toys, the Flutterbye fairy uses an infrared sensor to detect solid surfaces beneath it. This includes a human hand, so a child can guide the fairy upwards without touching it.

As a bonus, each fairy comes with a jewellery box style base which acts as a re-charger, display stand and a launcher.
