The Fairy Family are a range of ethically produced, handmade fairy figurines produced in the rural regions of north Thailand. Each fairy figurine is finely detailed with hand painted faces and a wide range of materials used in their clothing, including satin, silk, nylon, florist’s papers, plus sequins, glitter and beads. The arms and legs are flexible so the fairy can sit, wave her arms, or be posed in other ways. Each fairy figurine comes with a fine loop of golden thread which allows the fairy to be suspended, for example on a Christmas tree. All models except Mermaids are supplied with a metal leaf which acts as a stand- the fairies have magnets hidden in their feet to allow them to stand up. They’re also a good cause to support as they’re produced by women in the rural north of Thailand, where work is scarce, and each worker is paid a fair wage for production. Additionally, a proportion of profits from the parent company in Thailand is paid into a government managed fund which improves infrastructure in those rural areas, such as clean water supplies, communications, etc. Please note that the Fairy Family are supplied as collectables, not toys. While they may withstand some gentle play they are not tested as a toy product and should not be given to young children.
