Explainer: The girl explains to the camera she's about to show how the Flutterbye Fairy works, but she has no idea what's to come
We can fly: The toy takes off from the base as the little girl excitedly watches the toy hovering in the middle of the room
To the flame: The girl watches helplessly as she realizes that her toy is heading straight to its doom by the open fireplace
Reaction: Even dad doesn't react in time to stop the Flutterbye Fairy, having accepted its fate, from gliding into the fire
Finally it takes off ...and sails straight towards the open hearth.
Her father is sitting nearby playing with his phone, but by the time he notices what's happening, it's too late.
Like a moth to the flame, the Flutterbye Fairy ends up finding its way straight into the fire.

Why Sky Dancer Dolls Were Way More Dangerous Than You Thought
Ask most girls born who grew up in the 1990s and they've probably heard of the Sky Dancer toys. These were fairy dolls that stood on a small pedestal-like object. There was a long string that kids pulled, sending the dolls spinning into the air like a helicopter. It was beautiful. It was dainty. It was dangerous.
Sky Dancers were so dangerous that in 2000, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) ordered the recall of 8.9 million Sky Dancer toys. The regulatory agency said the company that made Sky Dancers, Galoob, received 170 reports of the dolls hitting people, resulting in 150 injuries ranging from scratched corneas, temporary blindness, and chipped teeth to broken ribs, a mild concussion, and facial lacerations that required stitches.
People who owned Sky Dancers know full well how dangerous they are — and fun. It's still a toy, after all. Mashable even played with some vintage Sky Dancers, and indeed the toys remain as unpredictable as ever. They were supposed to fly upwards and gently fall, but this didn't happen a lot. Plus, if you lived in a house with ceiling fans and owned one of these toys? Oof. It didn't go well.
Do you remember Sky Dancers?
The elegant, spinning fairies were the toy of the late 1990s, but they were also pretty much tools of war.

Sky Dancers were released in 1994 by Galoob. They were also featured in an animated show, a children's book series, and a Game Boy Advance game, but you'd probably best recognize them from a viral video in which a girl using a similar toy called a "Flutterbye Fairy" lost it to a fireplace.
Drag queens Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova also once lovingly referred to the toys as "the gayest thing in the world."
Sky Dancers were recalled in 2000 after only six years on the market because they caused more than 100 reported injuries. According to CNN, the injuries ranged from scratched corneas to broken teeth.
Mashable's The Toy Shop reviews the best and worst toys from our childhood, and looks into just how much fun they actually are. In the latest episode, host Dustin McLean and guest Asya Peña check out Sky Dancers: Were they as fun as they remember? Or were they kind of terrifying?

Even though the hellish fairies aren't stocked by retailers anymore, you can still find them on eBay.

It was a golden autumn in the yard in the best sense of the word. Everything was strewn with leaves of various gamuts: from gold to burgundy shades. The warm, gentle sun warmed the earth.

Instead of stabbing, I stumbled upon a cinema. The queue at the cashier lined up for twenty people. "They give something interesting," flashed a drunken thought. From the age of sixteen he did not drink, as he vomited then someone else's toilet, and did not drink. The youth around him temporarily caused a feeling of panic in.2 Hours of The Best Classic Christmas Songs with fireplace and beautiful background
He climbed in the computer, idly went through several sites on the Internet, read e-mail, but by 8 o'clock he got bored. There was a rerun of the last season of The Simpsons on TV, but he had already watched it. Having nothing to do, the boy began to sort the papers on the table and suddenly came across an envelope made of thick gray paper.
Maybe try. To dress.

And the trolleybus rode, swaying, the crowd swayed from side to side. And them too. And at the second stop at Kostya he got up. After three stops, the girl turned her head and looked at him in a strange way, pursing her.
