My Take on the Product
One of the first things I noticed with this toy were the details that the toy company put into the fairy itself. The toy was beautiful, and my daughter thought so as well. The toy itself takes 6 AA batteries (which is a lot), but what these batteries make the toy do is pretty unique and cool. Seeing that the toy itself does take a lot of batteries I might recommend using lithium batteries for longevity if use. I did not try this with rechargeable batteries so do not know how well they would work with this, but it is a possibility that these may also work well. The batteries are placed in the docking station (as I call it) for the fairy and charges the fairy itself. This station is also the launching station for the fairy too. By charging your fairy and then hitting the button you are able to launch the fairy into the air and then by placing your hand underneath the fairy you can control where she goes and how high she flies.

I have to say that my daughters loved controlling heir fairy and they thought this was a very fun toy to use. As mentioned above I decided to use lithium as I surmised that I could need them, and so far they have been working great. My five and nine year old girls were able to control the fairy with no problems and the biggest problem that we had was having the girls share the fairy!

All-in-all this was a fun toy and one that I am sure that your kids will love too!

How long did your flying fairy last? I am having problems with mine after one day.

So far we have still been having no problems. What is your fairy doing?

Our daughter's lasted one day. Her motor no longer has sufficient power to enable her to leave the base. This is a common problem I have read posts about from other frustrated parents made over the last two days. Someone said they they took it back to the store and were given a replacement.

I have followed the instructions for charging and then played with it okay for about 5 minutes (that is 4-5 flights, then we noticed that it does not fly anymore, it just spins with the same high speed but doesn't get hight. )
We thought it should recharge, and followed again the procedure for charging.
Next day (!) we encountered the same problem, it spins rapidly but doesn't fly, it stays on the charging base. We noticed that the fairy is blinking intermitently orange at the point where the charging cord is suposed to be plugged in. This is just happening when the fairy button is ON.

I also took it in my hand and then pressed the launch button and same result. It spins but does not fly
