Our favourite Fairy Themed Books, Toys and Resources for kids

  • Friendly Fairy Toob– I absolutely adore this imaginative play set by Early Years Resources. It comes with 10 very cute toy fairies (male and female) and the most gorgeous little toy snail! Great for creating your own small world play set up for children.

  • Fairy Felicity’s Moonlight Adventure – This book was bought for us by a very good friend and is a firm favourite in our house and with good reason! It’s a gorgeous, magical story with a sprinkling of glitter! The glitter on each page shows the path the fairy follows. Children can start to develop hand eye coordination by carefully following the glitter trail with their finger across the pages.

  • If you’re looking for a fairy themed activity book, we’d really recommend these two fun books by Make Believe Ideas: Izzy the Ice Cream Fairy Colouring Book and My Fluttering Fairy Activity Book. The perfect books for fairy themed sticking, colouring, activities and puzzles!

  • Carddies Fairies– We are huge fans of Carddies. If you haven’t heard us raving about them yet- head over to this page to see our previous reviews. Carddies are little, portable, cardboard colouring sets. In the box you get characters and their background to colour. Children can then use it as a toy to play make believe with! Their fairy themed set is just beautiful! If you fancy buying one feel free to use our 16% off discount code! (To receive this discount, please remember to enter the code CHESHTUT in the “Gift Card and Promotional Codes” box at Carddies Amazon checkout)

  • Forest Friend Lottie Doll. I adore Lottie dolls, they  reinforce important values such as self-image, inclusion and gender equality. They are also such high quality and come with accessories, shoes etc to put on and off. They are also pretty adorable! Their Forest Friend Lottie Doll would be ideal for a child who loves fairies and magic.

  • Fairies Stencils– Stencils used to be a ‘big thing’ when I was younger, but I don’t see them used as much anymore and it’s such a shame as they are great fun and a wonderful resource for children. There’s something quite magical about colouring the shapes in then taking off the stencil and revealing the final picture! We really love these Fairies Stencils by Early Years Resources. They are great value and you get 6, hardwearing, beautiful stencils in the pack. We’ve had a lot of fun trying them out. They are brilliant for helping children develop their colouring skills, fine motor and pencil control.

  • Alice The Amber Fairy– This isn’t just an absolutely gorgeous fairy book, this book is also a fantastic story that helps children understand the importance of telling the truth and celebrating others.

  • Magical Doors: Discover the Doors to Fairyopolis (Flower Fairies Friends) Whilst this book is aimed at slightly older children, it’s one book we HAD to include. It’s one of those keep sake, stunning, pop-up books that children will love and (hopefully) treasure and even pass onto their own children in the future.  
  • Orchard Toys Magical Castle Jigsaw Puzzle– We love Orchard Toys Puzzles, have a read of our previous reviews here, and this puzzle is no exception. It’s absolutely brilliant. Puzzles are a great toy for helping children develop hand eye coordination, problems solving skills, memory skills and even provide a mechanism for many children to relax. This puzzle has 40 lovely chunky pieces that children can connect together to form a beautiful picture of a castle, full of detail and intrigue.

  • My Fairy Garden ‘Fairy Nature Garden’ – This wonderful and very special toy not only promotes imaginative play but through play it also teaches children about nature, how to grow real plants and even the importance or reusing water through a water butt. Children will enjoy playing with the two (boy and girl) fairies in the two storey fairy house, planting and growing their own cress seeds on the top and even growing peas at the side! We love this toy so much we are giving one away over on Instagram here (see details below, terms and conditions apply)
