Dreamland Fairy House Kits :: A Review

Dreamland Fairy House Kit and Book

Last week I shared some special fairy houses we had made from cardboard boxes. The kids have been playing with the houses and their flower fairy dolls quite a bit both inside and out.

(Until we left the cardboard houses out in the rain anyway. Oops!)

The fairy house that I’m writing about today is special too, but in a different way. (Make sure to read to the end to see who came up with the idea for these!)

It’s a small wooden house that came in a kit with paints, fairy dust, and a storybook.

We started with the book…

The Dreamland Fairy Book

The fairies in the book liked to tell stories among themselves at nighttime but one night they ran out of stories.

They didn’t know what to do until one fairy had the brilliant idea of listening in to children’s dreams as a way to gather new stories to share.

Daphne is completely captivated by this idea!

And in the Dreamland Fairy box, along with the book, is a small wooden house, some paints, a paintbrush, and some fairy dust.

The house is just the right size to set next to a bed and provide a safe place for fairies to listen in to children’s dreams!

Daphne painted the fairy house (with Maia’s help for parts of it).

Then we set it up on top of the small dresser between their two beds (they share a room) with the rooftop “door” open so the fairies could get in.

Daphne sprinkled some of the fairy dust before bedtime to attract the fairies.

And every morning she comments on her dreams and whether or not the fairies have come to listen in so they’ll have stories to tell.

The Dreamland Fairy Creators

This Dreamland Fairy House Kit was sent to me by a reader whose 6 year old daughter and her friend came up with the story and idea.

Ami, one of the mothers, sent me an e-mail about it (excerpted here) ::

One summer, my daughter and I created indoor fairy houses, which Addison then took to her room. She invited her friend Sophia over, and they created an entire story about these houses and the fairies that visited them. Sophia went home and told her mom that she wanted the same fairy house that Addison had in her room, but when her mom went to search online for them, there were none to be found.
.
This mother contacted me, and together we agreed that we would try to bring our children’s idea to market. Over the past 9 months we have written a children’s book, had it illustrated and self-published, and manufactured our own unique Fairy House.
I thought it might be nice to share this idea with you, since it came from 2 kids using their imagination during a play date. I’m so proud of my daughter and her friend… Secondly, it’s exciting for our daughters to see this idea that they had together fully come to market…

If you want to buy one of these Dreamland Fairy house kits for a kiddo in your life, you can find them on their website as well as in some toy stores and catalogs (I’ve seen it in Magic Cabin, for example) and they come in a really nice box (good for gifting).

    Can’t get on the dreamland fairy box website, there is nothing there. I love the idea.

    What a lovely idea! The story book to go with it is a genius idea to get those imaginations soaring.

    I was looking for an art project for my younger sisters and this looks like the perfect one! They are going to love reading the story and painting the house. :) Thank you for the review!

    Love this! I just emailed the company to see if I could buy a complete kit, plus an extra house kit, so each of my girls can have one to decorate. It is a wonderful idea, and my girls love fairies so much. Thanks for reviewing it.
