Lucy is a young fairy, her wings not yet fully grown, and like many her age, she travels about on a bird as she learns the ways of the forest. Lucy’s bird is a cardinal, a lovely winter bird. As Lucy was just born at midsummer, the cardinal is a perfect companion for fall and winter.

  • Characteristics: As a young fairy, just born this year, Lucy has not yet fashioned a dress of flower petals. She’ll wait until her wings are fully grown for that. In the meantime, she wears the colors of water and sun.
  • Size and Color: Lucy, in her sunshine stockings and aqua tunic, is 3 ¼ inches tall. Her cardinal friend, bright red with black and orange markings, is 4 ½ inches long and 3 ¾ inches tall, similar to a large index card.
  • Lucy on a Cardinal set is part of the Fairy Fantasies® collection.

Product Description


Birds and fairies are practically inseparable. In fact, if biologists were knowledgeable of the existence of fairies, they might call birds and fairies interdependent, for their fates are so tightly bound. Fairies maintain the trees and flowers of the forests and fields, which the birds depend upon for food. At the same time, fast-flying birds provide an early warning system for fairies, tweeting and zipping away if an intruder appears, allowing fairies to remain unseen.


Lucy hoped to never grow up. Not that life as a grown fairy was all that hard; it meant days of coaxing flowers open and evenings of spreading dew, but as a young fairy, she was allowed to fly about on a beautiful cardinal, a privilege she would not have as she grew. Lucy loved her cardinal. She admired its bright colors, she thrilled at the speeds at which it darted through the forest, and she admired its chirping whistle. She smiled this morning as the cardinal dropped from its nest and hopped about in a clearing, waiting for Lucy to jump on. Another day of sunshine and play. It might not last forever, but Lucy would enjoy it while it did.
