It’s in the still, serene moments where your child’s imagination can come alive. Invite some enchantment into a quiet corner of their room with a beautiful fairy door.
Fairy doors are miniature gateways to special worlds occupied by fairy folk. They attach to walls, shelves or even trees and kids interact with their fairy friends by leaving letters on the doorstep – and getting deliveries in return! Not only do fairy doors bring magic to kids’ worlds, but they also inspire lots of neurologically beneficial pretend play.
We’ve left no stone unturned looking for the most delightful options in Australia and have gathered them together in one nifty list.
What to consider when choosing a fairy door
Charm-factor – A door that draws an ooh or an ahh will entice the fairies! Look for a door that captivates their imagination and looks beautiful in their bedroom. Its small size brings loads of cuteness, while extra details such as accessories or sparkles add a touch of extra magic.
Suitability – Fairy doors appeal to all ages (mums included) as there’s a bit of wonder in all of us. However for your youngest folk, sets with loose parts that could present as choking hazards, so save the embellishments for when they’re older.
Opening or closed doors – Fairy doors differ in their designs; some have doors that open and invite lots of interaction between kids and other worlds. And others have permanently closed doors, which are only opened by pint-sized fairies while kids are fast asleep.
Where it will live – Choose a design that suits where you want the fairy entrance to be. If it will be used outside, look for weatherproof materials. On the other hand, if it’s to be positioned against a wall, you’ll need Blu-Tack, velcro dots, adhesive or screws.
