Fairy Winkles :: Find Me's

FairyWinkles

"FairyWinkles ... they appear in a twinkle!"

Fairy Winkles were produced by Kenner in 1993-95. They were sets of tiny fairies which came with various playsets to hide and play in.

They were sold in the US, UK, France and Germany.

  • UK & US: Fairy Winkles
  • Euro: Folly Magic

Find Me's

There were three playsets in the Find Me's series.

  • Find-Me Flower Basket
  • Hide 'n Play Jewelry Box / Fairy Secret Jewellery Box
  • Peek-A-Picture / Fairy Find Me Picture

Two of these playsets had different names in the UK.  The Jewellery Box mould was used again by Kenner for one of its Littlest Pet Shop playsets.

Find Me Flower Basket

"The playful Love-Me Triplet WeeWinkles can't contain their curiosity! They're nestled all cozy in their basket until you push up the bottom! Then, look out... Tender, Truly and Dew WeeWinkles pop out to peek at you when no one else is watching! Will you be their special friend?"

The Flower Basket playset came with:

  • Basket with push-up base
  • 3 WeeWinkles (Love-Me Triplets, Tender, Truly and Dew)

This set was called the same in both the US and the UK.

US packaging had a slightly different blister pack layout and also included the special offer, whereas the UK/Euro packaging did not.

Hide 'n Play Jewelry Box

"Glitter FairyWinkles and Sparkle WeeWinkles love sparkly rings & things, and watch over your favourite jewelry! Remove lid, and it's a nice place for jewels! Replace lid, turn right 'til it stops, and find a secret compartment! Replace lid, turn left 'til it stops, and their hideaway vanishes! It's magical!"

There were two colour variations of the Jewelry Box playset, which came with:

  • Jewellery box with inner lid
  • 1 FairyWinkles (Glitter)
  • 1 WeeWinkles (Sparkle)

According to UK back packaging, this set was called Fairy Secret Jewellery Box but I have as yet to find this set packaged up for the UK.

The colour variation has a white lid, but was otherwise the same. This is the only image I have found of this variation.

The mould was used by Kenner to produce the Littlest Pet Shop "Mini Surprise Families" Hiding Places "Jewelry Box". It was a different colour and had a different sticker inside.

Peek-A-Picture

"Grins FairyWinkles and tiny Dimples WeeWinkles are so very shy they hide behind your favourite picture from everyone ... except for you! Lift up the picture to discover them waiting for you in their magical hiding place! They'll make you giggle!"

The Peek-A-Picture playset came with:

  • Picture frame
  • 1 FairyWinkles (Grins)
  • 1 WeeWinkles (Dimples)

According to UK back packaging, this set was called Fairy Find Me Picture but I have as yet to find this set packaged up for the UK.
