The Fairy Bag March 2019 Review
This note came in our box and I love the sweet Maya Angelou quote at the top here, "try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud." Such a good message for anyone really! This card described the items in the box and even highlighted the trait of compassion, which is a great introduction to an important character trait. Since this is a fairy bag, you'll notice there was a bit of "pixie dust" in our box. It was just a little bit though and not too obnoxious, but, you've been warned! 😉
The first item in our box arrived a bit misshapen from being in the box. Since it is made of a transparent PVC I think it will just take a little bit of time for the shape to stretch back out. This bag features gold hardware, cat-shaped handles, and a removable gold chain to wear it as a crossbody purse.
The chain is super lightweight and not as high-quality as the cat handles, but I think it will hold up okay and it's nice to have it as an option!
This is the perfect size bag for a little girl and the plastic means it will wipe clean easily, which is always nice with kids around! We really loved the holographic aspect of it and had fun seeing how it looked in the light!
Fairy Bag Pink Satin "Sunday" Gloves
The card referred to these as "Sunday" gloves, but of course, to my daughter, they are Princess gloves! They came with a tag attached that had the Fairy Bag name and logo, but no pricing information. They are nice and long with shiny, pink satin and some adorable bows complete with a pearl bead in the center. They seem to be pretty nice quality and are definitely a step above the dollar store variety that I have purchased for her before.
Bunny Pom Headband
This headband is so cute and perfect with Easter coming up! The little tag under the bunny reads "hand made" and it definitely feels like a handmade item with the pom bunny and felt ears. It seems pretty well constructed and I believe it has a metal band underneath so it should last, too! This also had a little The Fairy Bag tag attached to it.
Morganite Agate Beaded Bracelet
The last item we received is this little bracelet. The note says it is handcrafted out of Morganite agate beads and it features a white cross. These stones are meant to symbolize compassion, so this little bracelet will be a great reminder of that trait. I love the fun colors and the way the cross is sideways, which I think is a little cuter and better for an active young girl since it isn't dangling down and easily broken! I was actually surprised to see a cross on the bracelet since that makes it feel a bit religious to me, but maybe that's just me?
Here she is with all of her new accessories. I love that everything can be worn together!
Verdict: This was our first time receiving The Fairy Bag and I think this was a cute box for the intended ages of 4-6! My daughter really liked the bag and the dress up gloves and I thought the headband and bracelet were cute accessories that she will get some use out of for sure. I think the quality of the items was pretty decent, too! The cat bag alone currently retails for $13.99, so for a $19.99 box that would mean the remaining three items have an average value of $2 each, which sounds reasonable, but the promised value is supposed to be $40 or more. If we consider the $23.99 MSRP cost of the bag (which was listed in their spoilers), that would give the remaining three items a value of $5.34 each to get to that $40 value, and I don't know if we are quite there. However, I am still happy with the value we received, especially considering it gets shipped to your door for free. I'm interested to see how future boxes look and if they do really look like $40 boxes!
