Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell uses a real-time clock similar to games like Animal Crossing or Virtual Villagers, which means that Pixie Hollow's appearance changes depending on the time of day. Players can move Tinker Bell around Pixie Hollow using a fun control scheme where you tap and drag the stylus on the screen to make her fly around. You'll earn medals for completing tasks that can be used to shop for hundreds of items and outfits. You can also design your own outfits using different colored stamps. Another important part of the game is making friends with other fairies. If fairies like you, they'll give you nicer gifts and may even start to copy your sense of fashion.

Pixie Hollow can be confusing to navigate until you get accustomed to where everything is, and the game's plot isn't much more than the never-ending cycle of seasons, but Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell is a fun game if you take it for what it is: a collection of mini-games, tasks, and outfits that lets fans interact with familiar characters.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
