There’s a real craze for fairies in our house. It started with Scrip looking after the fairy house at school (I’m still not sure what form this house takes but it seems to provide hours of fun at break time), continued with night time notes to the Tooth Fairy, even though she still has a full set still intact, and then carried on with Tinkerbell and her friends who flew in at Christmas.
Then there’s the fairy dust, tiny fairy door and now, the final piece in the puzzle, her My Fairy Garden. She was delighted to try one out for herself as we’d bought a few variations such as the flowerpot for friends’ sixth birthdays recently. I like the way there’s a bit of nature mixed in – with our version you get some grass seeds to sprinkle in the soil and grow around the miniature house and accessories.
There’s a generous-sized tray that you fill with soil and then add the other parts of the scene to. Everything is quite straightforward to slot together. There’s a house with a door that opens and top that comes off, a tiny washing line complete with pegs, a shell water feature, a toadstool and a little plastic mouse (which is not my favourite bit!) There’s also a leaflet with some other ideas for playing inside.
Fairy-sized flowers to stick into the soil that the grass will grow up around come with the set, as does a colourful path to lay and, of course, the fairy herself who’s kneeling down enjoying the scene. Ours is called Belle.
Anything that encourages children to interact with nature and rewards some patience as they watch the seeds grow is a good toy in my books. I wonder if I can encourage her into the garden to water my veggies this summer?
