After you enter your birthday's month and day (the default is 07/15), the story opens with the first movie's intro:
"Born of a baby's first laugh, the winds have carried her far across the sea to Never Land. In Pixie Hollow, fairies of every talent are preparing to bring Spring to the world... And at this most important time, a new fairy has arrived! She's feisty and rebellious, but also brave and loyal. She discovers her fairy-talent is tinkering...and she might be a very rare talent indeed!"
Queen Clarion greets Tinker Bell, Chipper then comes by to greet "Miss Bell", and how she is "tickled as a tooting teakettle" that Tink is a tinker fairy too. Both then heads to Tink's house. Now with her new outfit, Tinker Bell is told to head for the Minister of Spring as he needs help preparing for the season.
Tink finds the Minister's Preparation List for Spring and gives it back to him. The Minister gives her 20 Fairy Medals, and the list back to her so she can complete the tasks: repair 1 item, get four-leaf clover and 1 green dew drop. Chipper then takes her to the "Workroom" in the "Workshop" and shows her "workbench" and explains to her how to fix items. Tinks fixes a tea kettle for the Ministry. In the Fairy Garden, when Talking with Rosetta, she explains that she had a four-leaf clover before but while she looks for it, Rosetta asks Tink to fix a bucket for her. In Lilypad Pond Silvermist asks Tink to find her Blue Shell near Rosetta, in exchange for the green dew drop. (After each request the player gains Fairy Medals.) When delivering all items to the Minister of Spring, he allows the player to choose between 3 green baskets, all with a different hidden item inside, when clicking there is no turn back unless the player goes back in the save. Spring is then brought to the mainland. (As the seasons progress, more areas from the game become accessible.)
After all four seasons are completed, every area may be visited and season preparations become optional, varying each time. Many different tasks must be accomplished, which are bestowed upon the player by other characters. Such tasks include: deliveries, item repairs, requests for items and searching for insects.
Is a mini-game presented by Tinker Bell, that would give the "day's fortune" by looking at the pot's mist. The player would need to use the stylus in the touch screen to rub the magic pot (similar to Disney's Genie Lamp). The fortune had flower levels from 1 to 5 and included: Friendship, Health, Prosperity, Knowledge. Tink then says the lucky color of the day, and it can be share with online friends.
