Disney has just added a new male fairy named Slate to their Pixie Hollow website. Rather than receiving the “Fairy” title like the female characters from the popular Tinker Bell franchise, Slate is called a “Sparrow Man.”
One user wrote on the website about the new addition:
“I think it is great for Pixie Hollow to add Sparrow Men. Now my grandson can fly a boy fairy instead of a girl. It will make him feel special.”
Fly your own Fairy or Sparrow Man at http://pixiehollow.go.com/ and keep an eye out for more characters to be added!
