Flower Fairies :: Pixies
Flower Fairies were produced 1983-89 by Hornby. They were a series of 7 inches dolls with little petal outfits and wings that fitted into their backs, inspired by Cicely Mary Barker's drawings. Along with the fairy dolls there were pixie dolls, fashion sets, animal friends and playsets.

There were twelve Pixies produced in total, all sold individually and some also sold again in sets with fairies or with extra accessories.
I've not found conclusive evidence that these three pixies were ever sold in any other way than on their own.

- Pine Pixie

There was also mention of another pixie accessory shown in a Flower Fairy catalogue/brochure which I have not heard mention of elsewhere, but have had confrmation it was produced by an owner of one. The pixie in the image below is Pine Pixie, but he is not mentioned by name in the text.
