Some Garden Sparkle treasures are delicate and require handling with care. When opening your parcel please unwrap items carefully as some might break if dropped on a hard surface. Please exercise caution and supervise children when handling small and/or fragile items.
Each product listed on the Garden Sparkle website comes with a description of the material it is made from (wood, resin, metal, polystone) and a recommendation for indoor and/or outdoor suitability. We do recommend placing items in a sheltered area so that they are protected from the weather. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight for long periods of time. Areas with filtered and indirect sunlight are best. We recommend all fairy garden items be brought inside during extreme weather (cyclones and storms).
Our manufacturers recommend coating resin, polystone and wooden products with a polyurethane spray varnish at least twice a year. You can check your fairy garden items at the turn of the seasons and spray as necessary. This will increase the life span of your fairy garden treasures and help provide extra protection against Australia’s harsh elements as well as bleaching from the sun. Clear spray varnish can be purchased from your local hardware store.
Metal items will rust if they are exposed to moisture which will add to the items quaint charm. If you wish to remove rust, sand the area back and give it a new coat with spray paint. You may even like to revamp it with a change of colour.
With a little bit of care and maintenance your fairy garden accessories will provide you and our family with years of enjoyment!
When purchasing for children please consider their age and stage of development. It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to gauge the suitability of our fairy garden kits, sets and accessories as some might include wire points, sharp edges and small objects such as pebbles, gems, tiny ornaments and jars of glitter which could be a choking hazard for young children. Please note our products are not recommended for three years of age and under unless specified. Most items are sold for decorative purposes and are not toys unless specified suitable for rough and tumble play/indoor and outdoor play areas.
