I've seen a really cool present for a family of little girls but it involves them all still believing in fairies... around what age do you think little girls would find this too 'childish'?

I don't think all little girls believe in fairies confused

All the kids I know have a concrete understanding of what is a real animal and what is a mythical creature.

Wow - what a shame - where's the magic of make believe gone? I remember loving making up stories about the fairies at the end of the garden when I was little.

Er no, I never believed either. My dd's never seemed to. Fairies are a bit outdated I think

Please tell me it's not one of those fairy door things off eBay?

nope - it's a fairy garden growing kit so the kids get their own bit of the garden. Figured it was something all of them could get involved in. It's between that and a design your own kite at the moment... then I'm officially out of ideas until next year confused

8 year 7 months and 23 days. That's for all girls of course, boys are all to busy playing football to have believed in fairies in the first place.
