Kids love video games, but how great would it be to give them something that motivates them to get outside and explore? WowWee’s Got2Glow Fairy Finder is made to do just that. It's a smart hybrid of tech and IRL play, and it's slated to be a popular gift this holiday season (it's already on the "50 most-wished-for kids' gifts" list at Target). The blue version is out of stock at Amazon but the pink one is available at Walmart, reduced from $40 to $35!
What, exactly, is this Fairy Finder? It’s a sturdy plastic jar with a small screen in one side. When a child opens the lid of the jar, a “fairy” flies in and appears on the display. What kind of fairy depends on how and where the child is holding the toy; for example, shaking or holding the jar upside down might bring an upside-down fairy!
The Fairy Finder has garnered some excellent reviews on Amazon. One parent says their daughter “absolutely loves it and never puts it away.” Another shopper says "I love the Got 2 Glow Fairy Finder! It is like a Pokémon Go and Tamagotchi in one, except you're catching fairies not Pokémon." This reviewer goes on to say their partner “even enjoyed catching fairies, and he's a 26 year old man.”
Target also has them on sale for $35. We suggest picking at least one Fairy Finder up while you still can — come December these toys will be even harder to find than real fairies!
