Bluebells are fragile flowers that first bud as tiny, purple oblong balls. As they bloom, they turn blue, extend, and take on the shape of small bells. Flower fairies are born inside flowers, so one day when a bluebell curled open, Bluebell the fairy appeared. Flower fairies live in forests and fields, often alongside the edges so they may flit about the fields but seek security within the wood. They are elusive at best, with all types avoiding human contact, and their magic allows them to appear as butterflies or bees if they like, ensuring their secrecy.
Bluebell awoke early, excited to begin the day. She shook her shimmery wings, feeling them dry and strengthen in the slight sunlight. Today was the winter solstice, a day of little sun, but an important day in the life of flower fairies. For today, one of them must travel a great distance to the center of an old forest and gather sun gems. These tiny gems dropped from the sun on just this one day of the year, and although the dark, cold forest was fraught with danger, the sun gems meant life for the fairies, for these gems would ensure that midsummer’s flowers gave birth to more young fairies. Bluebell felt confident though. Instead of buzzing through the cold air with only her wings, she would ride her faithful pony, a fine companion in the forest. She hummed a few notes, calling the pony to her, hopped on, and took the reins. And so the annual journey began anew.
Like all flower fairies, Bluebell is named after the flower in which she was born. Her clothes are fashioned of flower petals; her slight but strong wings shimmer in the sunlight. Within the flower fairy community, she is known for her mastery of ponies.
- Characteristics: Like snowflakes, the wings of all fairies differ. Bluebell’s wings are light green, somewhat moth like, and they shimmer in the moonlight. Bluebell is designed to sit astride the Fairy Pony (Sold separately).
- Size and Colour: A mixture of violet, sky blue, and light green gives Bluebell a quiet, glowing beauty. She stands 3 ¾ inches tall, a little shorter than a soda can.
