The stuffed fairy doll has a sewn-on pom-pom nose, a pink satin dress with glitter netting as a ruffled collar, sleeves, and dress apron. The doll attaches to the sleeping bag with a hook/loop attachment on the bag and between the doll's wings. The fairy doll is one of three toys that attach to the sleeping bag. Also included are a large unicorn pillow and a small flat unicorn. The unicorn attachments are not included in the recall.
