So MomMomOnTheGo and her Little One are very familiar with Flutterbye Fairies. We have reviewed a couple of Flutterby Fairy products with the Flower Flutterbye Fairy and the Deluxe Light Up Rainbow Fairy.
The Flutterbye Fairy flying fairies are awesome and we just go crazy over them. So when I found out about a new Flutterbye Fairy product, the Surprise Butterfly Diary, I have to admit that I was excited to put it to the test and get it flying as well.
You can see my Little One opening her Flutterbye surprise package above. In her package she had both a Flutterbye Fairy and a Surprise Butterfly Diary. The Surprise Butterfly Diary is in the top of the package.
Inside this enchanted diary lies a magical secret waiting to be discovered. Open its pages to reveal the most delicate butterfly as it gracefully flies across your room. Each elegant dance of its wings is a sign that magic is real. Open your Dairy’s secret compartment and discover your very own journal where you can share thoughts, dreams and magical wishes. Enchanted secrets are waiting to be discovered inside the magic pages of your Surprise Butterfly Diary!
2 Rubber Bands
1 Instruction Guide
The Flutterbye Fairy Surprise Butterfly Diary is very simply to use. All you do is place the beautiful butterfly into the diary, close it, pull the string, then open the diary and watch your butterfly fly. The butterfly flies really well and actually goes for quite the flight. Our butterfly was always stopped by the objects that happened to get into its flight path. I am actually not sure how far the butterfly could fly, but it is a short, but awesome flight when you open the pretend diary.
My Little One, who is 7 years old, loves her Surprise Butterfly Diary. She loves that it looks like a diary but is really hiding a butterfly that can actually fly inside. My little One also loves that the Surprise Butterfly Diary is very easy to use. She literally only has to pull the string at the bottom of the diary and then open it up and the butterfly flies right out of the diary.
You might want to note that the instructions say to pull the string three times and then open the book to let the butterfly fly out. The butterfly really flies with three string pulls and will do a pretty good flight with just one string pull as well.
The butterfly has a rubber band on its back which I assume is what helps it fly. You do receive two extra rubber bands with your butterfly which are in the rear hidden compartment of the diary along with the notepad and the instructions. I am not sure how often you would need to replace the rubber band. Our butterfly has had an awful lot of flight time already and our rubber bad still looks as good as new.
The age rating for the Surprise Butterfly Diary is 5 and up. I think that younger kids would love the Surprise Butterfly Diary but might need a little parental supervision while using it in order to make sure that the butterly gets put into the diary properly. The rubber band is a small object if removed from the butterfly so I do not recommend the product for young children under 4 years old for this reason.
Flutterbye has done it again with another awesome product that kids will love. I know that my Little One is absolutely in love with her Surprise Butterfly Diary.
We love all the Flutterbye products and they easily make it onto the MomMomOnTheGo Christmas Wish List this year. I think that these will be hot items not only for this Christmas Season, but throughout the year.
