These ridiculously cute little tricksters have been not so subtly making their presence known, much to the dismay of Henry, my ginger cat. So far though they have not been too much trouble, which is not that surprising since they're not really very dangerous. Although I do make sure to protect my ears when I hear their shrill little nonsensical voices approaching. As yet I have only spotted the two pixies but I am certain that there are more waiting to be discovered, which I hope to do once I find the location of their nest.



These iconic magical creatures have been expertly designed to resemble Cornish Pixies down to the last detail. The one on the right stands about 9 inches tall from head to foot not including the antennae. The smaller pixie on the left is printed at 85% to create an 8 inch tall pixie as described in the Harry Potter series, again measured from head to foot not including the antennae. Both pixies have jointed arms and legs, bendable wire in antennae and ears, and have the option for removable wings.



This smaller Cornish Pixie is an ideal size to replicate those as found in the Harry Potter series, or possibly to have hanging from your ceiling. The other pixie created from the original pattern is a better size be handled by little hands for play or hugs. At either size they are adorable little tricksters that can be left wingless as described in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, or there is the option for removable wings to resemble those pixies seen in the Harry Potter movies. The creator of this unique magical creature is mieljolie and I purchased this pattern from her etsy store.

They are very cute, I like the blue fabric and the antenna. They remind me of Ghilie's poppets which I always loved so much.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
