Review: Flutterbye Flying Fairies, A Fairy That Actually Floats Above Your Hand???

Flutterbye Flying Fairies

We just spent a few hours doing a whole video review of the Flutterbye Flying Fairies.  We are about to open up and write a full review of the Flutterbye Fairy.  However, if you are short on time, let me make this simple for you…

If you have a girl who likes fairies, get them the Flutterbye Fairies!

The new Flutterbye Flying Fairies from Spin Master are exactly that… flying fairies.  We could try to explain it, but it is better if your watch the Flutterbye Fairies in action…

Please Watch Our Video Review of The Flutterbye Flying Fairies -

Which Flutterbye Fairy Will You Pick?

In the video we show Flower Fairy.  What’s so special about Flower Fairy?  We’re glad you asked

“The magic is in your hands! Flower Fairy has chosen you to help her fly. Like the posies that bloom in the garden, Flower Fairy brings love and beauty to all who fly her. Magically guide her through the air with the movement of your hand. Do you believe magic is real?”

The Flower Fairy not doing it for you?  You could go with the Stardust Fairy or Sunbeam Fairy.  While all the fairies have the same mechanics and game play, they do have different looks and unique back stories.

Flutterbye Fairies Offer Further Proof That Simple Is Better

Spin Master, the parent company to Air Hogs, could have filled these fairies with endless technology, but thankfully they did not.  The Flutterbyes have just enough technology to enhance game play, but not so much to make them complicated.  Press a button the Fairy floats up.  Press the same button she comes down.  Put your hand under her and she hoovers over your hand.  Recharge and replay.  That is it!

Conclusion: If You Have Girls Who Love Fairies, The Flutterbye Fairy Will Be A Hit

Sometimes when writing reviews, things get complicated.  Is a toy worth the money?  Does the toy appeal to different audiences?  Is the toy fun, but hard to operate?  With the Flutterbye fairy, things are very simple – if you have girls who love to play with dolls, princesses and fairies, they will love the Flutterbye Fairy. The toy is easy to use, has just the right amount of technology and is priced right ($34.99 retail).

    Um can see the fluttering fairy as a Nerf target now. But glad SpinMaster is branching out

  • Kim

    I bought one for my daughter and the fairy doesn’t always launch. We keep hitting the button over and over until she will finally take off. Also she doesn’t seem to just hover. She takes right off up and sideways and my daughter has to chase her. Then some times she stays up in the air with her head against the ceiling and now one under her and she won’t come down. Don’t know if we have a bad one or if this is the norm for all of them.

    • Heather

      Same problem here…. Can’t seem to figure this one out

      • Dan Dad Does

        Hey Heather and Kim,

        So sorry you guys are having problems. Let me see if I can find a support contact at Spinmaster. Sounds obvious, but have you checked the batteries? With our unit, you press the button on the base (we put the base on the floor) and she flies up about 4-5 feet and hovers. You then put your hand under her and she goes higher. Yes, if you push her too high, she can hit the ceiling, but that was not the norm. Sounds like maybe a bad unit? I’ll check with our contact to see if there is anything else you can try. Thanks!

        From what I can tell pretty much EVERYONE has a bad one. Sadly there will always be sites like one that will promote anything for a $.

  • Emiley

    Thank you for your detailed review. On your video the fairy sounded very loud. I’m not sure if it is just the sound the camera picked up or if this toy really makes a screeching, high pitch sound while flying.

    • Dan Dad Does

      Hey Emiley – sorry for the delayed response, somehow missed your question. I guess it is as loud as it sounded in the video. I am used to the sound of RC helicopters whipping around the house, so the noise didn’t even register with me, but I guess if you are not used to that, you will hear it. No means silent, but also didn’t seem crazy loud to me. Hope that helps.

  • cyd

    My daughters wont take off!!! Really upset I got it for her birthday!!

    • Tara

      Make sure you turn on the base and the fairy. There are switches on both. We made that mistake. Of course, mine still shoots straight up in the air then falls down sideways. No floating here. Not yet anyway. Good luck. Mine was a birthday present too. I bought it after I saw the youtube video. Lol

    • Dan Dad Does

      Hi Cyd, sorry about the problems. Tara gave a great tip – make sure both the base and fairy are turned on. If you are still having problems, contact Spin Master, it really should fly!

  • Tara

    Mine shoots up in the air, but won’t float above our hands at all. Still trying to figure it out. May not keep it if it doesn’t work like it should. Kind of disappointed that we can’t figure it out yet. Toys should be easy to use.

    • Tara

      Mostly, I’m disappointed. I really wanted a flying fairy!

      • Dan Dad Does

        Hey Tara, thanks for the comments, but sorry you are having problems. So weird, ours worked as shown in the video right out of the box. I would call Spin Master support and see if they can help you. Thanks for reading.

  • Kelly

    My older daughters fairy doesn’t launch off the base, her wings/ skirt just son really fast and she doesn’t move off the base,have tried everything, charging it and yes the switch is on. A complete waste of money, my younger daughter wants one for Christmas but I certainly won’t be getting her one, very disappointing.

    Our’s is a psycho kamikaze bringer of tears, my wife and I can’t get the thing to work for more than a couple seconds.

  • Katherine Brown

    Ours hasn’t worked right yet..kept crashing, sometimes wouldn’t come down from ceiling.. flys all over the place sideways, wouldn’t shut off when hitting something, spinning around on the floor. and now it won’t even launch, her dress and such just spin on the base.
