Our feature product, ‘lil Fairy Doors, are proving to be not only a beautiful way to inspire imaginative play in children, but a tool for helping children through difficult childhood stages such as sleeping through the night or taking naps, starting school or daycare (or changing schools), moving to another home, coping when a parent is away from home (separations or loss), potty training, sleeping in one’s own room for the first time, (and more). The fairies, from time to time, can leave notes of encouragement for good behaviour, special gifts, rewards, treats or treasures to show they’ve been watching and visiting. The fairies might also sneak through your fairy door and play with some toys in your room leaving little footprints of fairy dust behind.
