If you're starting your Christmas shopping, beware of flying fairies – the pesky things just cannot be trusted to behave, as this little girl sadly found out.
Picture the scene: it's Christmas day and Santa has been! The presents are unwrapped and – oh! – what's this? A flying fairy! How wonderful. Quick, fire (no pun intended) her up and watch her take flight...straight into the flames.
Yes, this beautiful fairy doll didn't even last until Christmas dinner after she zoomed straight into the lit fire just seconds after her first flight.
The fairy's owner can only watch in horror as the doll zooms towards the flame at full speed – her screams of despair starting just as the family stop filming her special moment (presumably because they rushed to put out the flame – that frock looks awfully flammable).
It looks like the doll is pretty generic rather than a Disney favourite. Can you imagine Elsa or Anna zooming towards those flames full throttle?
Doesn't bear thinking about...
