T29255 - Flitter Fairies Enchanted Flying Fairy w/ MagicWand & Story
I bought this for my 8 year old daughter for Christmas in 2009 and WE ALL loved it! It was a bit difficult to work at first, but after you get the hang of it, it's extremely easy. Thank goodness the extra strands come that with it because you will need them! It really is a very neat gift!
My daughter loves these :)
I bought all 3 of these unique fairies last year for my 9 year old daughter for Christmas. She still plays with them today and wants the new ones when they become available ... she already pegged one of them as the reward she would like for her report card. Each time we have company, she can't wait to show them her fairy and how she flitters & flies around her :) I can't really testify to the ease of use on this item as my husband is the one who has helped her with set-up and getting her acclimated to use. But in contrast to other reviews, in our case, this item has been wonderful :) With QVC's 30 day money back guarantee, if it seems like something you would be interested, it doesn't hurt to try!!
flimsy and difficult to work. Child broke it the first time she used it.
Very surprised, QVC items are usually AAA
Useless toy...DON"T WASTE YOUR TIME OR $!!!
I bought this for my daughter for christmas and we tried to play with it once and she had not interest in it at all after that. It kept getting tangled in her hair and the string kept breaking. DON"T BUY THIS !
Not just for little girls, but big girls too!
If you love fairies & magic, you HAVE to give this a try! I received this fairy as a Christmas gift. I love it! It was a little tricky at first, but after practicing a few minutes, I got really good at it. I also checked the website for a few more tips. This is a great toy! I brought it with me to a holiday party and had everyone (both adults and children) in awe over it, they couldn't figure out the "secret".
7 year old girl was disappointed. Tangled and not fun. Maybe good gift if $5 but not at this price plus shipping.
SAVE YOUR MONEY!!
This product was very disappointing...purchased this for my 9 year old niece for Christmas. She had no interest at all, after 4 adults "tried" to make sense of it! It pulled her hair too! And not very attractive either!! Meaningless gift!!! Sent it back!!
We were dissappointed in this toy, within two days the wand had broke. Its a nice idea but it is fragile and not made to last.
I actually thought this was quite clever. I had no trouble attaching the fairy wire and it stayed put, as I followed the instructions. I can see where it would take a bit of practice to make it look like more than a plastic doll being drug around by a string. Hence the 3 stars. Also, the motion of the wand kept pulling my hair up. A dead giveaway. But it is a clever idea and a keeper for one who is into faries.
This is a rip off
The demonstration on TV looked to be so easy and interesting but it was anything but. This is certainly one of the biggest waste of $20.00 I have ever done. I got them for my son's girl friend's daughters and was very very embarassed. My complaints are covered by the previous reviews. I am very disappointed.
Cute Idea Poor Performance
Even though this was for 8+ years, the toy looked simplistic and I sent it to my grand daughter (who is 5). My daughter helped her put together the fairy. 3 pieces of silk broke during the process, because the glue dots would not hold the fairy silk to the clip when you moved the wand, AND the hair clip kept falling out of the hair. The only part that worked well were the wings that fluttered when you turned on the switch. I returned 2 of the 3 that I bought, because my grand daughter thought the doll was cute, so she kept one. If they had used heaver fishing line instead of fairy silk, it would have been a cute toy. The way it is , it's a BIG waste of money!!!
Enchanted, No Way
While I was in NY Christmas shopping with my daughter and granddaughter, my husband, who never orders from QVC, happened to see this while channel surfing and thought what a neat gift for our 9 yr. old granddaughter. In fact, he was quite excited to give it to her Christmas morning. What a waste of our time and money, trying to get it going. Directions difficult to understand, string kept breaking, putty not holding string. Our granddaughter was so disappointed, and after about 45 minutes of fooling with this Magical Fairy????, we repacked it for return, and told her we would take her to the mall later for a surprise. This is the first time I have ever written a review, and I've shopped QVC for many years, 1 star was one too many.
