Oh, we do love a good fairy toy here at MFM – and there are LOTS out there to choose from at the moment. So we've had a good look round (yep, under every toadstool!) and done some testing, and rounded up the 10 fairy toys that'll cast a truly special spell on toddlers, preschoolers and gossamer-wing-loving schoolies.


Here's our pick of the best fairy toys we've seen...

Glimmies Polaris Triple Pack

1. Glimmies Triple Pack, £12.99

Age: 3+

What they are: Pocket-sized fairies that glow in the dark. There are umpteen different ones to collect, along with their Glimhouses, Glimtrees and even a Glimwheel.

Why we love them: They're small and affordable and, when you line up a few together on a shelf or drawer top and turn the light off, they actually look really magical. Cute-as-a-button stuff that won't break the bank or take up too much room. Lovely as night lights, too – and anything that makes bedtime something your child actually looks forward to is a winner in our book.

2. Grafix Decorate Your Own Fairy Wings, £9.99

Age: 7+

What it is: A kit containing a pair of 40cm x 28cm pink fairy wings, 3 glitter glues, a pack of gems and instructions for decorating them.

Why we love it: No discerning small child's wardrobe is complete without fairy wings: great for make-believe, dressing-up fun – and last-minute school costume days you weren't expecting. What's special about these wings, of course, is that your child gets to customise them just as they like.

Available from: The Range and Amazon


3. The Irish Fairy Door Company Fairy Friends, from £9.17 each

Age: 3+

What they are: A range of 4 gorgeous 30cm-high fairy snuggles (the one pictured here is Evie-Bee). They each come with a Fairy Friendship Booklet and an exclusive story you can find online.

Why we love them: They are super-cute and very cuddly. Apparently, if you hug them, you might feel a warm spot: this is your real fairy hugging you back!

Available from: Amazon


4. My Fairy Garden Lilypad Garden, £19.99

Age: 4+

What it is: A fairy flowerpot house with its own moat and drawbridge, as well as a swing, table, stool and tea set. You sow the seeds provided to grow grass in the roof-top garden (or plant flowers of your choice) for your fairy and her frog friend (both included). Also comes with an activity manual.

Why we love it: It's an enchanting gift for a fairy-mad kid – and we really rate the sowing-seeds aspect, too. How exciting to prepare and grow your very own fairy-and-frog habitat!

Available from: Amazon and Argos


5. Melissa And Doug Petal Fairy Magnetic Dress-up Set, £11.99

Age: 3+

What it is: A decorated box containing a cute wooden 22cm-high magnetic fairy on a stand and lots of fairy outfits for you to give her umpteen costume changes.

Why we love it: This 56-piece set is a dress-up dream, and the little costume pieces are well-made and beautifully coloured. We wish the box came with a lid but otherwise, it's perfect!

Available from: Mulberry Bush and Wold's Agri

Playmobil Fairies Fairy Unicorn Island
