3.0 out of 5 stars Alright, but seems to teach an odd lesson... 19 Sep 2006
By R. Nilsson - Published on
I bought this as an audiobook for my daughter, and she enjoyed it. I thought it was alright. I just found it increasingly frustrating, as Tink refused to tell anyone what her problem was (it was only an accident!) or to ask for help. What's the moral here - if you have an innocent accident, better to lie, and refuse to ask for help, and get deeper into trouble, than risk embarassment? Is she that afraid of her "friends"? Yeah, I know, reading too much into a kids' book, but it just seemed a bit odd. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book 11 May 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
Opinion: this book is great! I loved the idea of "fairy tag" that the author came up with. I think that anyone who likes Peter Pan will love this book. However, I don't think that it is better than Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg.

Summery: When Terrance invites Tinker Bell to play fairy tag, Tink is delighted! Fairy tag is much more complicated than Clumsy tag, but when Timk loses her tinkers hammer, her life is practicly ruined! Tink is the best pots-and-pans talent in all of Pixie Hollow. She can't possibly fix anything without her tinkers hammer! The worst part is that she has a spare hammer, but when she went to visit and live with Peter Pan and the lost boys, she left it there. Tink hasn't talked to Peter since he brought Wendy to Neverland. He broke Tink's heart that day. Now, she is faced with the biggest decision in her life, talk to Peter, or lose her talent!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible message 29 Jun 2011
By Kathy Carrington - Published on
Like so many other little girls, my daughter is "Princess" and "Fairy" crazy. Since so many of these products push the message that beauty is everything, I do have a problem with this craze. However, I happily accepted Tinkerbell into our house since she is a good problem solver, fixer, and builder - things not often pushed for girls.

Imagine my horror when I started skimming this book before reading it to my daughter! In this book we learn that Tink is actually a terrible builder/fixer. The only reason she has ever been good at being a "tinker fairy" is that she has a special magic hammer. When she loses it, everything she touches goes wrong. If she had just lost her confidence along with her hammer, I wouldn't have minded. She would have learned that she could make great things on her own before finding her lost hammer at the end of the story. No... in this story, nothing goes right until the special magic hammer is back. Terrible message for both girls and boys.

In addition, as other reviewers have noted, Tink keeps refusing to tell anyone about her problem (the lost hammer). She simply won't ask for help. Why? Is she afraid that some other fairy will take her hammer thus proving to everyone that Tink is NOT a good tinker fairy? Is she just afraid to admit a mistake? Again, why?

If you like seeing your little girl preening in a mirror, dressing up in "fancy" clothes, acting helpless in the face of any problems, maybe this book will appeal to you. If you are trying to slip in the message that pretty is nice but determined problem slovers win the race, then stick to the Tinkerbell movie and skip this terrible book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical! We love this book. 28 Mar 2006
By Lily's Mom - Published on
My daughter has always been a HUGE Tink fan. Now that she is seven, she had outgrown some of the magic. This series brings the magic back for an older set of Tink fans. She absolutely loves the books and, especially, loves the art work. Just gorgeous. We can't wait to get the stories on CD for the car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ethan's review 5 Mar 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
I liked this book. This book is about Tinkerbelle. This book took place in Pixie Hollow. Tink can't find her hammer and she lost her talent for fixing stuff. She found her hammer in the Lost Boys hideout. Tinkerbelle got her talent back. I would recommend this book.
