I received this delightful little fairy set from Carddies in the post to review on Friday. The timing was perfect giving my daughter the whole weekend to play with it.
Each Carddies set contains 12 double sided little Card People, 12 colouring pencils, 12 plastic stands, 1 double sided scene card and 1 box to keep everything in. Each side of the Card People can be coloured in and one side of the Scene Card too. The other side of the Scene Card has a picture of each figure with space below where their name can be written.
My daughter opened it straight away, began giving the figures names and colouring them in. She loved it. In fact, it was played with all weekend. She even took it along with her to her grandparents. The great thing about the set is that, with a child’s imagination, the scenarios for bringing the fairies to life are limitless.
Aside from the fact that it kept my daughter busy most of the weekend my most favourite thing about Carddies is the size of the box. It is perfect for popping in your handbag or kids bag and taking along whenever you might need something to keep children entertained. And best of all everything fits neatly back in the box when done.
I would definitely recommend this toy. It’s ideal for taking along whilst travelling or for giving as a gift. I will be purchasing another for my daughter but with 12 to choose from the problem is deciding which one!
