Fairy gardens are not quite complete without the magical creatures that are often found in enchanting forests and the like. After all, it is these creatures, just like our pet cats and dogs who are believed to truly see these magical fairies in gardens, fields, forests, and other natural landforms. Just like humans and their four-legged best friends, fairies also have a great relationship with their animal friends. For those who enjoy creating and maintaining fairy gardens, we’ve come up with a cool list of pet fairy garden miniatures that your fairy friends will truly appreciate having around.
The Fairy Dragon
Fairies are also often linked to the magical creature that is the dragon. While it’s not clear how they are related or why they are often linked together, the mythology surrounding fairies and dragons is often rooted in one’s culture. It’s even influenced pop culture, literature, and media. In fact, role-playing game lovers who are familiar with “Dungeons & Dragons” would know that there is such a thing as the faerie dragon, which is described as a dragon but with wings of a fairy. Today, fairies and dragons are still part of mythologies and age-old stories of magic and fantasy. To recreate the enchanting world of the past, we have curated a list of pet garden miniatures that will surely add another dimension to your fairy garden.
