在中国时，YouTube用户 @Masayoshi Akao 发现那只可爱的娃娃的头上有一只螺旋桨，很有可能是最近在美国很受欢迎的Flutterbye的飞翔玩具炫舞仙子的仿制品。当被告知能“徘徊在你的掌心之上”时，这位父亲就决定买一个当做纪念品带回家给自己的两个女儿。
"Bye-bye!" Chinese flying doll works a little too well, becomes one-use toy
Let's play a little word association game. Ready? Chinese-made children's toys.
I'm guessing "high quality" isn't the first thing that popped into your head. You don't have to go far to find stories of people buying knock-off dolls or action figures in China, then giving them to their kids or younger siblings, only to watch them heartbroken as they don't work as implied by the packaging.
But that doesn't mean all toys made in China are shoddy, because some do indeed work well. Sometimes even too well, as one Japanese father found out when he brought back a Chinese flying doll for his daughters.
While in China, YouTube user Masayoshi Akao came across the cute figure with a propeller attached to its head, most likely an imitation of the Flutterbye Flying Fairy toys that have recently been very popular in the U.S. Purported to be able to "hover above the palm of your hand," Akao decided to pick one up as a souvenir for his two little girls.

Back in Japan, it was time for the tykes to try out their new toy. Of course, the first time you're using any sort of flying contraption, you want to make sure you have plenty of overhead clearance, at least until you know for sure how high it'll go. So Akao and the kids headed outside for the doll's first flight…
…which also turned out to be its last.
We're not sure where it's going, but one thing is for sure, that doll is not coming back.
Japanese Internet users had the following to say:
"It's a disposable toy."
"I guess it went back to China?"
"I keep watching this, and as the whirring sound of the motor gets quieter and quieter, it makes me feel so sad."
We're guessing the intended effect was something closer to this.
