Glimmies – the New Collectibles from Flair: A Review

The children love collectibles –  especially Aeryn. She has them all in boxes and only she knows which one is in which box. We were recently sent Glimmies to review and these have pride of place in her toy box.


What are Glimmies?

Glimmies™ are 23 little star fairies sent by the moon to take care of “Glimmieswood” forest animals. This is the reason why Glimmies™ have cute resemblances to forest animals and love endless adventures in the name of friendship and always respect nature.

During the dark, Glimmies™ magically light up the wood shining bright, creating a beautiful and magical light like a firefly. Glimmies always shine bright at night and hide in the light… but held cupped in the hand they will also reveal their beautiful glowing and enchanting light.

(For grown-ups the science behind this magical reaction is by using a photometric light sensor on their head that responds to the “lack” of light in the surrounding environment.)

There are 23 Glimmies in total all 6 cm high with beautiful glowing light… 16 Glimmies are available across single and triple packs and 7 exclusive to playsets. Each one represents a forest animal with its own distinctive colour and facial expression.

The Glimmies: Foxanne, Hazelyn, Celeste, Rakella, Nova, Dormilla, Batlinda, Lumix, Dotterella, Spinosita, Flayla, Cornélie, Alya, Cerulea, Astrea, Almendra, Lavoonia, Siestina, Fernicia, Rubina, Pluma, Aurea (Aurea is limited edition and is available with the Glimtern).

How did we like them?

Needless to say that fairies are very popular in our home and fairies that light up – well, you know how they would be met.

The Glimmies are a nice size and are perfect for little hands. As you can see, Aeryn can hold one in her cupped hands – and she’s 5.

They can be lit up with the help of a button on them. Since they can be switched off you can save batteries when they are not being played with. Each Glimmie has her own name and bio too.


The Glimmies are kept in a little basket in Aeryn’s room and when you go in at night they shine. It makes seem like fairies have come out to play.

The Glimmies are priced at £3.99 a pack and are ideal party bag gifts as well as to form a collection as each on it different.
