Fairy Tails :: Playsets

"Birds with happy endings!"

Fairy Tails were produced by Hasbro in 1986/87. They were a series of colourful plastic bird with long hair and symbols on their chests, similar in colour to My Little Pony. Each bird came with a perch which their feet could grip onto when they were no longer gripping onto your fingers! They also came with a comb and ribbons for their long multi coloured hair. There were a few playsets produced but I don't know of any other accessories.

Unreleased Playsets

"There's no place like Home Tweet Home! Baby Tippy Tails and her Fairy Tail friends like to gather in this pretty bird house and chirp the day away. Bird house makes a delightful chirping sound when a child blows the special whistle. There's a mirror for admiring a new hairdo, a swing for an afternoon ride and a large, revolving perch that holds three Fairy Tails, plus lots of other perches around the house for visitors. Mirror, swing and large perch are removable for separate play. Perch on top is also a convenient carry handle with a hole in the centre that allows adults to string a cord through it and suspend the house like a bird cage. Comes with Baby Tippy Tails, comb, barrette and hair netting for hair styling fun."

There was one unproduced playset, never making it any further than the Hasbro catalogue. It would have come with Baby Tippy Tails.
