Iron Fairies Packaging Styles
Bagged - NEW STYLE Packaging
This is the most recent style, introduced in August 2016. Packaging Includes: 1x Iron Fairy in a Personal faux leather bag with tie string, with leather fob showing description, plus another leather fob sewn on the bag with instructions for use of the Magic Fairy Dust. Within the bag is a bottle of 'Magic Fairy Dust', a personal 'Antique Scroll’ of the individual fairy's poem and a Certificate of Authenticity showing The Iron Fairies Serial Number (Very similar to the tinned packaging, but without the tin and newspaper). The whole range of 24 Iron Fairies, plus 4 Grumpy Old Miners are now available in the New Style Bagged Packaging.
Discontinued in 2015, and now more difficult to find and sought after by people wishing to complete their set. Packaging Includes: Inside the hinged tin your Iron Fairy is individually bagged (on rare occasions it may be wrapped in an Iron Fairies printed cloth instead). The bags are generally encircled by an old-fashioned reproduction of the West Australian or The Miner newspaper. Within each tin is a bottle of 'Magic Fairy Dust', a personal 'Antique Scroll’ of the individual fairy's poem and a Certificate of Authenticity showing The Iron Fairies Serial Number.
Fairies available in the now discontinued tins: Asria, Elle, Erin, Jade, Mouna, Raine, Sophie and Tia (last one!). Just a few of Grumpy Old Man Coli are also left in tinned packaging. Less than 30% of the range are still available in tinned stock. However, some have long gone and will never be available again, with many others also facing extinction very, very, soon! Once they are gone, they will be gone forever!
Boxed & Strung Packaging
Discontinued some years ago and now difficult to find. Packaging Includes: Printed, Boxed packaging, uniquely tied with string. Within each box is a small envelope of 'Magic Fairy Dust' and a personal 'Antique Scroll' of the fairy's poem tied with the same type of string as the outer packaging. Fairies available in the older Boxed & Strung packs: Asria, Mouna & Tia are the remaining Iron Fairies as of July 2017.
Grumpy Old Miner Jilo is also available in this packaging style. Once they are gone, they will be gone forever!
Bags (Old Style)
Packaging Includes: 1x Iron Fairy in a Personal 'aged' bag with tie string, (with leather fob showing description, plus another leather fob sewn on the bag with instructions for use of Magic Fairy Dust), 1x Bottle of Magic Fairy Dust with Antique Scroll inside with further information about the specific fairy. The old style bags (most collectible to early enthusiasts) are only available now for Asria & Chante (as of July 2017), so be quick before they are all gone forever!
