Handcrafted by women in the rural regions of northern Thailand and profits go back to the area to improve infrastructure. The fairies have hand painted faces and BENDABLE arms and legs so they can be posed as desired. They are dressed in satins, silks, cottons and nylon and decorated with beads, sequins and lace. Each fairy figurine comes with a fine loop of golden thread which allows the fairy to be suspended, for example on a Christmas tree. All models except Mermaids are supplied with a metal leaf which acts as a stand. The fairies have magnets hidden in their feet to allow them to stand up. *Note: Tassie Design Fairies are supplied as collectibles, NOT TOYS. While they may withstand some gentle play they are not tested as a toy product and should not be given to young children.
