~*~Pixie Hollow Real Haircuts Game~*~
Written by Marigold Sunjewel

Hi, Pixies!

While I was searching for the latest Pixie Hollow news, I stumbled across a Tinker Bell-themed game on GirlsPlay.com called Pixie Hollow Real Haircuts:

PHRHC_1

Here’s the game’s description:

Enter the wonderful land of Pixie Hollow and give the cheeky Tinker Bell a new haircut! The fairies are eager to see your styling skills in action so start cutting, curling, and dyeing the blonde pixie’s hair. You can make awesome hair styling combinations with different shapes and colors because Pixie Hollow is a magical place, just perfect for practicing your creativity. Finish the hairdo with sparkles and gentle flower pins, then choose Tinker Bell’s fairy dress and wings so she can fly away in a new adventure!

This game is currently rated 83.50 out of 100, so it’s definitely an above-average game. I played it a few times, and it’s actually pretty fun 🙂 It’s kind of like when you could try new hairdos and hair dyes at Schelly’s Shears in Pixie Hollow, except that you can now customize the experience! It’s also fun to try everything out using Tink as your guinea pig 😉

Brushing her hair can be a little tricky at times, and some of the other hair tools don’t work as precisely as I would like, but my biggest gripe is when I create a really awesome hairdo and Tink makes an awful, sad face. I’m like, “Why are you so upset??? It’s gorgeous!!!” 😛

Here’s one look that Tink and I actually agreed on – I call it Festive Fall:

Try the game for yourself and tell me what you think 🙂

I’ve also add this banner to my blog’s homepage so everyone can get to it more easily 😉

Have fun!

New:
Bring Back Pixie Hollow Petition

A new blogger and member of our Pixie Blogging Community Grace Glitterglow has started a new petition asking Roger Iger to re-open Pixie Hollow!

PHmap

 

Here’s the petition’s description:

The purpose of this petition is to bring back the site, Pixie Hollow.com Pixie Hollow was a virtual Disney game that was played by millions worldwide. The fairy-fun and adventurous game opened September 20, 2008, and closed on September 19, 2013. In the game, you could dress up your fairy, or sparrow man and fly with your friends on Pixie Hollow. You could play games, go on adventures, and much more. The closure of Pixie Hollow upset millions of fairies and sparrow men around the world. We have been told if we hit 25,000 signatures Disney may reconsider. By signing this petition, you are part of something big. Let’s make a difference and convince Disney to re-open Pixie Hollow! If you’d like to help in other ways please contact Disney Directly at: Disney Interactive500 South Buena Vista StreetBurbank, CA 91521 Disney.Interactive.PR@disney.com (425) 951-7100  or memberservices@pixiehollow.com – There are reports of automated responses coming back from this one  so you may have better luck using the information for Disney Interactive to lodge your complaints. Also if you do write don’t be afraid to let your children write letters. You can’t argue with the love of a child it is pure and true. The only way we will be heard is if we force the issue. Remember, Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust!

~*~Pixie Harmony*~
A Discovery by Carrie Tuliptwist

In case you missed the big news last week, Carrie Tuliptwist published a post on Minvera’s blog about a website she discovered called Pixie Harmony:

 

PHarmony_1

 

The site looks like it was intended to be a recreation of Pixie Hollow using the WIX site!!! 😀

Sadly, the website was last updated on March 21, 2015, and no one that I know of has received any emails back after trying to sign up to become a tester, so I’m worried this project was abandoned… 😦

However, since the site was just created earlier this year, there’s still hope that the creators may continue working on it if they receive a bunch of encouraging emails! Please, everyone take a second to visit the website, and click here to sign up to become a tester! I hoping after a bunch of emails get sent to whoever manages the website, the creators will get motivated to continue working on this awesome project ❤
