We received a My Fairy Garden™ Freya’s Magical Cottage™ for free from PlayMonster to play with and review. Opinions are our own.
Eva took the lead on this review. I selected this product with her in mind. She has always wanted to set up a fairy garden outside and we just don’t do much gardening. This seemed like a great product to use indoors so that she could tend her own little fairy garden. I love that she still has that spirit of curiosity and wonder at things like fairies.
The toy itself is pretty sold in its design. You get everything you need to tend the garden plus a few cute little items to play with like a table and chairs so that there can be tea parties in the fairy garden. I like that there is a small wire that the fairy can be attached to to make it look like she is flying around the garden. It certainly adds to the whimsy of the toy.
When we moved into our house and Eva was just about 5 years old we found a fairy statue out on the side of the house with a broken wing. She made it her fairy that tended to the gardens on the side yard. So, she has always loved fairies and believed that they were in gardens. So glad that she still has some of this left in her heart. Eva can tell you more about the toy in her own words in the video below.
I picked up Andrew after school today and we headed over to my parents house. He now enjoys climbing ladders as you can see. I also had no fear at 5 years old. But back to the reason I was at my parent’s house in the first place. I was going there to help out with their new Comcast X1 Xfinity boxes and router and more. I set up a couple of their TVs and also the Router. The downstairs TV took some doing because it was just old enough that it doesn’t have a dedicated HDMI plug. It did have a DVI plug and so yesterday I went and got a DVI to HDMI adapter and thought I was all set but was wrong. The DVI to HDMI plug only does video and not audio. Getting Audio and video was through some old AV plugs and the picture was not good. So I saw the optical audio plugs and thought that a wire for that would work. Unfortunately, both the DVR and TV had outputs. Eventually I got HD video and sound by playing around with the plugs and trial and error. That is usually how I fix things.
Tonight I went to my buddy Brian’s house to record SteamDads. We tried an experiment and it did not work. So we did a couple of other things instead. They ended up working out pretty cool but our video is going to be an interesting one and we are staying away from chemicals for a while.
I made today’s video late at night before bed. I’ve got a ton of toy reviews to finish up before Christmas. I’m just getting many thing sent to me, which is not a bad thing. However, I’ve gotten a bit behind. All the toys in the video will need reviews by the end of next week. That way people have enough time to go and buy the ones that they like the most.
