Fairy Tails :: Original

"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.

Packaging

The original birds were sold in boxes in US and Europe, and also on blister packs. The boxed packaging only vaired in the language used from country to country. You can see what colour accessories each bird came with.
