Flutterbye Flying Fairy
The Flutterbye Flying Fairy is no doubt an attempt to engage young girls in remote control toys and it one of the hot toys this year.
So move over remote control cars, helicopters and planes; Spin Master created the flying fairies to appeal to girls.
The remote control toys were traditionally geared toward boys and men. They were designed to look manly and perform to the extreme, and finding girls interested in the area was a challenge and something of a rarity.
In line with the recent move to create feminine versions of popular toys to more closely align with traditional girl’s tastes, Flutterbye Flying Fairy by Spin Master is a flying fairy with blades like those of a helicopter – but it’s a fairy.
Features of the Flutterbye Flying Fairy
“It’s like magic,” says one young girl when playing with the Flutterbye Fairy. To say that Flutterbye flying fairies are remote control toys is something of a misnomer, at least as the term is popularly used, because they don’t use actual controls.
There is no handset with up-and-down and side-to-side levers on the fairy. Instead, the feet of each flying fairy doll contain an infrared detection system that detects when someone’s hand is placed beneath, and the propellers (which look suitably like fairy wings) adjust height based on that.
Currently available at Amazon, there are three Flutterbye flying fairies on the market: the purple Flutterbye flying Starburst fairy, pink Flower flying fairy doll, and the Gold Sunbeam flying fairy. Read the rest of this entry
