Interplay My Fairy Garden Secret Fairy Door - ReviewLM loves all things fairy at the moment and she can often be found skipping around the house, pretending to fly with her fairy wings. She's fascinated by the idea of fairies visiting her so, when we were sent the Interplay My Fairy Garden Secret Fairy Door recently, I knew it would be the perfect way to add a little magic to her bedroom.
The Secret Fairy Door playset arrives in a beautifully decorated box, with the fairy door clearly visible. I decided I would set it up while LM was at nursery school and surprise her with her new fairy friend when she arrived home.
The set is simple to unbox and included you will find the tree trunk fairy door, a key and ribbon bracelet (and a second spare key), fairy and hedgehog figurine, mushroom, a set of wall stickers, and a fairy storybook.
The Fairy Door is simple to put together, simply slide the cardboard interior into the rear of the tree and use the six tabs included to clip it in to place. The door on the tree trunk opens so you can see the inside and use it to store some of the smaller pieces inside. It makes a lovely little home for the fairy and hedgehog.
Stickers are included in the set to provide a tree background for the Fairy Door. This arrives in two pieces for the base tree, with four different sets of stickers to depict the changing seasons. I loved this idea as it offers a really helpful way to discuss the changing seasons with your child and to talk about how a train changes through the year. As it was Spring when we were setting up the Fairy Door we went for those showing the blossom and new life of a Spring tree. All of the stickers are low tack so easy to position and move around should the need arise. The stickers do increase the amount of space needed for the Fairy Door so make sure you have enough room to place it when selecting a site in your room for it.
Once your stickers are in place you can affix the tree house at the base of the tree sticker, to create the full Fairy Door effect. There are foam pads to make this process easier. LM's room has a tricky layout as it's so small so we placed it on a box she has in her bedroom. This makes the Fairy Door 'float' a little so I need to find a little pebble for our fairy to use as a front door step! The key for the door actually works and can be used to unlock the door, although LM refuses to wear it as the intended bracelet. I've hidden the spare key so we can still open the door should she lose it.
The accompanying accessories are great. The box shows the fairy with a base to help her stand up but that wasn't present in our pack. It's not crucial for us as LM loves to pretend she is flying or to tuck her up inside her house with her hedgehog friend.
We really loved the Interplay My Fairy Garden Secret Fairy Door. It's delighted LM since it arrived and she loves playing with her fairy in her little house. It's a great set which offers a real educational element with the ability to change the seasonal stickers.
