Fairy Garden from Interplay is a really cute playset allowing for plenty of imagination creating a little world for your fairy to live in and then watch her garden grow. The set begins as a craft kit and then turns into scene where you can watch the grass grow and play with various pieces moving them around.
The Fairy Garden comes with the pot, all the accessories and grass seeds, you just need to add a small amount of soil. It is designed to be kept inside so you can watch it everyday, water it as necessary and cut the grass if desired.
Miss M was eager to get started and used her little garden trowel to fill her shallow pot with soil. The first job is then to construct the house which is made of glittery foam pieces which just attach together although she did require a little assistance to get it right but it did look pretty once built.
Once you’ve put the house in it’s position on once side of the pot, there is a bag of brightly coloured stones to lay out in front of the house as it’s path and a large shell to bury on one side to be the fairy’s pond which you can later fill with water. There’s a rather cute washing line to put up with a blanket and mini pegs, a toadstall and then a mouse who lives in the garden along with the fairy herself to place wherever you please.
Miss M really enjoyed putting the garden together, there are also some plastic flowers on stems to push into the soil and the last job is to sprinkle the uncovered soil in grass seed. As a twinkly final touch there are some glittery stars to make your garden sparkle.
With this set aimed at age 4+, you would need parental assistance to put this together. Miss M is 8 and enjoyed it but did need me to guide her and assist in a few small areas like assembling the house and putting the washing line together.
She was thrilled just a few days later when she spotted the grass starting to grow and was surprised how tall it had got already. She is hoping to give it a trim in a few more days.
Overall we’ve enjoyed Fairy Garden from Interplay, it’s cute, it’s fun, it gives children something to create and look after and enjoy for more than just one day!
