The Top 10 Most Uninspired Rainbow Magic Fairies

Warning: snark alert.

But seriously, doesn't this "Daisy Meadows" gal grind your gears some days?  Am I the only one who thinks "What the crap - they're really reachin' here!" when I see some of these gals?  Behold:

Flora the Fancy Dress Fairy: That ain't no fancy dress!  That's a mermaid costume, lady.

Carrie the Snowcap Fairy: A snowcap?  Is that even a thing?

Grace the Glitter Fairy: Okay, I know that the chidlers who read this series probably aren't concerned with mutual exclusivity, but don't all these fairies qualify as glitter fairies?  Aren't they all glittery?  Or is Grace merely the most glittery of them all?

Imogen the Ice Dance Fairy: I'm picking this purely because of the name "Imogen."  Far out, Daisy.  Interesting to note that the new version features the name Isabelle instead.  Also, ice dance is lame, with the exception of this.

Megan the Monday Fairy: No one likes the Monday fairy.  And that skirt looks much more appropriate for Saturday.

Abigail the Breeze Fairy/Evie the Mist Fairy: Like snowcap, I think that the breeze/mist are not consequential enough to require their own representatives in the fairy world.

Mia the Bridesmaid Fairy: This is the one that fans picked in some vote a while back, so I probably shouldn't make fun of it.  But really, I can't help but imagine the Bridesmaid fairy as one who carries around a lot of vodka and broken dreams and insists that she's not married yet because "She's putting herself first" (also, wasn't this book made into a terrible movie with Katherine Heigl?)

Paige the Pantomime Fairy: Because every child is concerned with pantomiming.  And why the dang is she classified as a "Christmas Fairy" on the website?

Kate the Royal Wedding Fairy: No fascinator?  Girl, please.

  1. Is there seriously a Kate the Royal Wedding Fairy? Seriously?

    I have an ongoing hate-hate relationship with the Rainbow Magic books. I’m not the only one, either. Maybe, as an expert, you can help with my friend Sarah’s issues! http://www.tanyalloydkyi.com/?p=708

  2. Thanks for the laugh, Shannon! Hope you are doing well. I just discovered your blog this morning and look forward to reading more of it.

  3. Ahahaha. This post made my whole day.

  4. Oh yes, Tanya – this is legit! Although I took it from the UK Rainbow Magic site so she might not be available on this side of the pond. I had the exact same issues understanding that Francine Pascal wasn’t a real person when I was wee!

  5. Pantomomines are theater productions common in the UK areound Christmastime.
    Nevertheless, these are very odd!

  6. Thanks Karen – I am clearly a bad Canadian as I should know this as a British subject. This one is available over on this side of the pond and I wonder if parents wonder “Huh?” (I don’t think the kid fans do as they will happily gobble up anything and everything Daisy)

  7. “Fancy Dress Party” (UK) = “Masquerade Party” or “Costume Party” (US), hence the mermaid costume.

  8. But still, how do you costume yourself when you’re a fairy? With wings. As a bumblebee with a wand?

  9. i luv these books
