The Bestest Christmas Gift Guide #20 – Look, a new ‘My Fairy’ Pop Up Book! Woot!

I have said it before, and I will no doubt say it again. I LOVE this series of books! There is something endearingly charming about Louise Comforts illustrations, and the detail that goes into the eneromous pop-up ability is just perfect.

Opened up fully, they create a large circle – the best method of attack is for you to tie the covers back on themselves, lie on the carpet with the book and simply immerse yourself utterly in the fairy’s world. We already have the My Fairy Showtime and the My Fairy Princess Palace, and the new My Fairy Magic School is, if anything, even better.

It follows the same theme as the rest – paper press-out elves and fairies with accessories and clothes, and a huge pop-out world with cupboards and doors and a hundred little ‘things’ to sweep your play along.

If you have a small person who adores all things make-believe, they will honestly be thrilled when they swing this book open. Pink was 2 when she received her first one – at 4 she still plays with them regularly (and her nearly-8-yr-old brother ‘helps her out’ a lot when no bigger brothers are looking). We always take them on holiday or to the grandparents as they are a huge toy in a very small package, and they make SUCH a wonderful gift. You can get some idea of the splendour and scale of these books by Louise Comfort and Maggie Bateson from some photos of Pink with her first My Fairy book.

Best of all, this one is only £8.15 on Amazon at the moment (in fact, the whole series are reduced, I just might go and stock up myself…). Go, buy – and come tell me if you don’t love it INSTANTLY.

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.
