My 3yr old girl LOVES it.

Kristen's Fairy House is a beautiful movie for little girls -- it emphasizes the magic in nature itself.

The children had a wonderful time making their own fairy houses -- using only materials from nature.

I love this video! It's nice to find a children's movie that isn't filled with action and adventure. It is a good bedtime movie, because it is so quiet and gentle. My six-year-old sister loved it, and wished she was Kristen. Even though I am older than the targeted audience, I love it too! I like to watch it with my sisters before we go to bed. My favorite scene is the part where Kristen and Tracy dance to "The Nutcracker" music and twinkling Christmas lights. This is a very beautiful movie, and although it may not exactly be edge-of-your-seats entertainment, "Kristen's Fairy House" is well worth the money.

As long as you have the proper expectations, you'll love this video. No flashy special effects; just a gentle story about appreciating nature from an artistic point of view, with a nice music soundtrack. Nothing to scare the little ones, which doesn't mean your older kids won't like it. Both of my kids (8 year old daughter and 11 year old son) and I enjoyed it.

My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed this refreshing video. In fact the children went outside and built 3 fairy houses. It took them about 3 hours. I inspected their work and delighted in their efforts.
The age question would not let me insert my correct age -- I am 50.

I bought this video based on the description. My 3yr old girl LOVES it. It is one of those over and over videos with her. It is a calming video and has great nature shots. Kristen goes to an island in Maine on a boat with her aunt. It is in a lighthouse setting. They go to a woods and every day Kristen adds to her own fairy house of natural twigs and such. Since I am "single" I appreciate that Kristen is enjoying an experience with her aunt and not a parent figure. It is an adventure to Kristen and it captivates my daughter's focused attention. I am always called to dance with her when the scene with lights and dancing to the Sugar Plum Fairys comes on. It is an off the beaten trail video worth having.

As a preschool teacher, I found Kristen's Fairy House to be a delightful video that worked well into other class activities. The children had a wonderful time making their own fairy houses -- using only materials from nature. And what a great way to introduce nature studies! We also raised and released butterflies like in the video.

This is a good video for motivating children to look more closely at the natural world surrounding them.

A young girl, Kristen, and her artist aunt go to an island in Maine so that her aunt can paint illustrations for her book. Kristen discovers fairy houses, which are simple, all natural constructions made for fairies. She makes several, and then observes them regularly for signs of fairies. She sees many signs of animal life, not fairy life. At the very end, however, there are signs of - well, you decide!

My children of course wanted to make their own fairy houses, which apparently naturalists now discourage on this particular island in Maine, but I have not stopped my children from picking up bark, twigs, fallen leaves and stones, and propping them up against the base of a tree to make their own fairy houses, particularly in our own yard.

The book is a nice companion to the movie.

From a video standpoint, it's a bit amateurish, but that kind of lends an extra sense of innocence to the story.

My daughter, who is quite taken with fairies at the moment, thought it was wonderful.

Since watching the film, she's wanted to be outdoors more and find places to build fairy houses out of sticks and leaves and other natural objects.

That's a welcome (if temporary) switch from the world of glittery princesses.

My husband and I appreciated the beautiful Maine scenery.

I would have given it 5 stars but I thought it was a bit expensive.
