Kev, you aren't fooling anybody here. We all KNOW you have a Tinkerbell Fetish. Besides, It's obvious it is for you. That says for ages 6+!

Comes with a cancer warning for Ca. customers. This state is so protective. I want a flying Dumbo Elephant cancer warning or not. Dumb and Dumber and Dumboer

This looks like one of those Dragonfly ornithopter things. I have flown one of them and they fly surprisingly well. If she want's it, get it for her. Just don't eat it to avoid the cancer. But then since you don't live in California, you won't get cancer anyway.

Oh my. Well if you have to buy it I would at least save money.
Amazon has it much cheaper.

Thanks Dennis, my wife had found it on Walmart's website for $39.99, but that Amazon price is WAY better. Nice catch.

Yep they are a decent 'net vendor.

I see Tink just flys up and down, perfect for Bekah to start with. Now to figure how to keep her from playing baseball with Tink and the ceiling fan......

Well, folks, I can say that Tinkerbell is a HIT with my 4yr old daughter! Tink is a throttle-only ornithopter, but if you let off the throttle a little, she can move to the side. Bekah almost hit daddy AND mommy, and thought she was funny.

Anyone with little princesses that would like to adopt their very own flying pixie, I can highly recommend this for their flying pleasure.

Hopefully you have created a monster. By that I mean you, since you will now have to begin building PINK airplanes. I guess you can get tips from Chellie.

Come on guys if you have a red plane and it lasts long enough the sun will fade it to pink.

That is SO not the same (though I am sure if it was MY plane that faded, Tom would have a field day!).

You might be better off buying a Cybird and rebuilding it with a powerful bl setup, and then taping a small Barbie to it. Have to do all the standard pilot lightening procedures such as disjointing the limbs/head, carefully drilling out as much material as possible with a drill bit without accidentally punching through, and then reassembling.

That would be punching through Kev's hand, right. That might be hard to reassemble. And considering his occupation, might not work well at the dispatch office.

But it is a really good idea. That is, the Barbie deal. Not the hand punching.

Chellie,

I think you should pack one of those up and send it to Bekah. I'll take good care of it til she can fly it. I promise.
