Product Review – Flutterbye Flying Fairies

Boys and men have enjoyed the concept of remote controlled cars, helicopters, and planes for a long time. And now, a recent move to create feminine versions of these popular toys to more closely align with traditional girl’s tastes, Spin Master has created the Flutterbye Flying Fairies, a remote controlled helicopter that is actually a fairy.

Let’s Take a Look at Some of the Features

To say that Flutterbye Flying Fairies are remote control toys is something of a misnomer because they don’t actually use controls. There is no handset with up-and-down and side-to-side levers. Instead, the feet of each fairy contain an infrared detection system that detects when someone’s hand is placed underneath, and the propellers (which look suitably like fairy wings) adjust height based on that. Recently released in time for the 2013 Christmas season, three fairies are currently available – Stardust, who is blue and purple; Flower, who is pink and purple; and Sunbeam, who is gold and pink.

Things We Like About Flutterbye Flying Fairies

While not every girl likes fairies and pink, many do, and it is nice to see more toys designed to appeal to their tastes. Like the Nerf Rebelle (a Nerf bow designed for girls) the fairies open up the world of remote controlled helicopters previously primarily reserved for boys. On top of that, the fairies just look incredibly cute and convincing as they fly around.

Things We Did Not Like About Flutterbye Flying Fairies

It’s estimated that a full battery charge will last about 5 minutes of flight time. While each one includes a charger and built-in batteries, it is not clear how long each charge will take to complete. The average time is about 20 minutes, which would mean 5 minutes of flight time for every 20 minutes charging time.

Who Would Buy Flutterbye Flying Fairies?

Any parent of a girl who likes fairies, which, according to national trends, is most of them!

Is Flutterbye flying Fairies Worth the Money?

At first glance, it may seem like a lot, but considering the technology used and the potential for fun, it’s a fair price for the technology in this fun-filled toy. It compares to other remote controlled toys.

Where Can I Buy Flutterbye Flying Fairies?

The Flutterbye Flying Fairies are available at all major toy retailers and department stores, as well as most major online retailers like Amazon.
