Every little girl loves fairy tales and unicorns. It’s not uncommon for a unicorn to be their favourite animal and a unicorn toy to be their favourite toy. And so you begins your quest as a loving parent to find the best unicorn toy on the market.
Lucky unicorns are not a scarce as you may have thought. I have found several out there. Not one of them, however, had the sheer charm and style of the beautifully turned out StarLily, an interactive unicorn that has crept right into our hearts.

About FurReal Friends StarLily My Magical Unicorn
StarLily is any little girl’s dream pet. She’s amusing, endearing and entertaining. She is beautifully made from top quality materials and comes with body sensors which enable her to react to your child with lights, sound and motion.
StarLily is suitable for children of 4+. This is because the unicorn comes with small components which are not suitable for younger children. She is also quite a large toy, standing almost a foot high.
Starlily comes along with her favorite treat and a locket around her neck with a letter of friendship for her new owner.
This toy needs 4 C size batteries. They are not included in the pack and you’ll require a small screwdriver to insert the batteries.
StarLily My Magical Unicorn Review
StarLily the Magical Unicorn is one of the FurReal Friends, a range of interactive toys from the Hasbro stable. She is a charming toy with more than 100 sound, light and movement combinations. She has lovely expressive eyes and beautiful delicate wings. Her body is covered with soft white fur.
One of the biggest downsides to StarLily is her price tag, but there is no denying that she is beautiful and well finished. Other unicorns on the market cannot compare to her sheer beauty and style. An alternative “Little Live”, at a fraction of the cost, is also a fraction of the size. While this unicorn moves and makes sounds, it is a plastic jointed toy with none of StarLily’s charm.
Another option, the furry Woodyotime unicorn, is also considerably less expensive. It nods and repeats everything you say, but in my view, this unicorn is better suited to a younger child, as it is far less sophisticated than StarLily.
StarLily, like most toys, has features that I really like and some not so much. I’ve listed them below
- StarLily is a beautiful and well-made toy
- Her interactions are charming and engaging
- She comes with an app so that your children can engage in her world.
- The app is not compatible with all smartphones
- StarLily is expensive
- The white fur is not that practical.

All the time batting her beautiful big eyes.

Every part of StarLily is designed to enchant. Her beautiful mane is pink gold and mauve and is tucked behind her perky ears. Her tail is the same color. Plait and play with her silky colorful mane or tail. Her blue hooves are covered with stars. The mauve locket around her neck carries a friendship message for her new owner.

An app-enabled toy
She comes with an app called My Magical Unicorn that can be loaded onto a smartphone or tablet. With the app, children can interact with StarLily. They can go into the enchanted FurEver Forest or explore the Rainbow Falls.
