New Playmobil Fairies Range – Christmas Gift Guide

My 7yr old daughter is a small paradox – she loves to wear a frou-frou skirt, have her her long and free, and desperately wants to paint her nails (yeah, like I let THAT happen…). BUt while she’s wearing her fluffy tutu, she likes to be armed with a sniper rifle, or climbing a tree, or chasing her big brothers across a windy hilltop.

It’s one of the things I like most about her, actually – she’s utterly free of any kind of expectation on how she should be, and she’s totally free just… to be.

She’s not mad keen on ‘girls’ toys per se – too much pink switches her off, and dolls bore her silly. But she’s partial to some sparkle, adores animals, and she does love all things magical; so fairies and unicorns are IN.

And as if by magic, look at the new Playmobil range this year – it’s Fairies! Huzzah!
Better still, it’s not rammed to the hamster cheeks full of pink. It’s feminine and pretty and full of cute animals – but the fairies come in all shapes and sizes and colours. This is going to be her absolute favourite, I know it:

Food Fairy with Unicorn Morning Dew

A purple-haired fairy in leggings with cool tattoos and a sparkling tattooed unicorn. Heaven.

And this bigger play set, the Healing Fairy Elixia in Animal Forest will keep her happy for hours – all those animals to make better! The goose with a bandaged neck has won my heart, let alone hers. With a  cauldron to mix potions up in, and her own magic animal hospital to work in, she’s be singing as she played (which she does quite a lot, to be fair).

The new Playmobil Fairies range is available direct from Playmobil, or from most good high street toy shops. Prices range from £7.99 for individual figures with a unicorn up to £30 for the largest set, the Fairy island with jewel Fountain.
By Playmobil standards these are all manageable sets with nothing too big or expensive. Which of course keeps them attainable for most parents – and easy to store too!

Fairy Island with Jewel fountain

Author: Laura

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
