The magic of technology and the fantasy of the mythical have come together!

As part of a brand new project, children from all over Australia have the chance to meet a fairy in their living room (sort of).

Jessica Shaw from True Fairies explains the power of the theatrical, trying to bring a bit of theatre and magic to a child no matter where they are (so long as they have an internet connection.)

Parents can book video chats for your child (or yourself if you fancy) with a True Fairy via their website.
