Text Box:     “Castle WishStar sits on a cloud hidden from view--it's the Star Fairies home where wishes come true! Under crystal towers, beyond soft pink doors, Star Fairies play, dance, and plan their wishful chores.  
      Sparkle rules over all, with her moveable throne set in place, while the other Star Fairies dance 'round the Maypole with style and grace. 
     Whisper's in the beauty bath behind the privacy screen, while Jazz snuggles into bed to sleep and dream. 

     There's lots to do in their home on the sky--perhaps you may go there by and by. Just make a wish and the Star Fairies will come from afar, to bring you with them to Castle WishStar!”

      Star Fairies “Castle WishStar” was made in mid-1980's by Tonka Toys. It was a play center which could be closed and opened to reveal an interior where little girls could play with their fairy dolls and let their imaginations soar!

      The exterior of the castle had a white cloud base, twin towers with a clear lilac tint top and a waving flags. There were jewel shaped windows for the fairies to peek outside. The white stairway lead up to two pink double doors. The interior sported a cloud bed chamber complete with cloud blanket and fluffy pillow, a cloud bathtub with a privacy screen, a moveable throne for the Princess, a balcony and a display rack to hang all their star fashions and wings. The Castle also came with a spinning Maypole for the Star Fairies to dance around.

Text Box:     “On moonlit nights, when the air is filled with magic and the sky sprinkled with stars, that's the time when Star Fairies are born. They come to you from falling stars. And can take you to a world where wishes come true. 

     Star Fairies live in an enchanted kingdom in the clouds, the land of WishComeTrue, where every day is special. For every occasion, Star Fairies have fantasy fashions: pretty dresses for parties; evening gowns for ballroom dances; a Star Shower Rain Cape for walking in the clouds; and when it's time to say good night, the Pink Clouds Nightgown is for sleepy Star Fairies to dream in.”

      Star Fairies “Clothing Fashions” were made in mid-1980's by Tonka Toys. There were SIX available fashions for the Star Fairies dolls to wear. The outfits also came with color coordinating embossed fabric wings too. It’s possible that each of the outfits may have had different colored wings, as pictures shown on package do not seem to match actual product samples, that I have in my collection in some of the examples (see pictures below).

The Star Coach is pale pink exterior w/ lavender interior. It has lavender wheels and silver highlights. Inside of some coaches may have a # stamped on them. Special ledge on rear allows the feet of a doll to be inserted so that it can stand on back.

Wish Keeper Jewel Box

This was a pink box which opened up and had a chair for the Star Fairies doll to sit and look in the vanity mirror. It had drawers where accessories could be kept & small closets to hang wings & clothing.

NOTE: I did not purchase the “Wish Keeper Jewel Box” at the time it was available, so I'm not sure what it was exactly used for or the measurements. If you should have this item in your possession, and if it’s in excellent to good condition, then I would be happy to include a picture of it here for others to see. Please feel free to contact me for details should you wish to contribute to this article.
