Pixie Hollow's Rebirth?-The shattered pieces

UPDATE 2016: PIXIE HOLLOW IS BACK! 
Yes you read that right!Just read on~
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(2014:)
Hey everyone!

 It’s been a really long time! Spring is here, and the blog is updated to match the mood! :D What do you think ?
This time I really went out and took a break from everything, including the blog.. and were a little late to fulfill my promise to you.
So today, as you can see, I have a brand new post for you my pixies!(GET READY THIS IS GONNA BE HUGE :D ),(*If you manage to get till the end of this post I’ll give you an ICE-CREAM xD ,) 
Ok so , back to the topic now! I know that everybody is really sad about  Pixie Hollow Closing down.. and is hoping for it to reopen…Now I know that the title of this post  has probably confused you a bit ..right
well let me explain!
Despite being “burnt”  down , Pixie Hollow has actually revived through its ashes! :D That’s what I meant by it “Rebirth”.
Still… Maybe not as a whole, but that’s where the shattered pieces part comes in!
I’ve noticed everywhere (well almost everywhere..) in the web,  little parts of our favorite game, and  today I am going to introduce them to you!  I know how much you miss our beloved Pixie Hollow, so these “pieces” a.k.a games, will give you a bit of the feeling, wich that game used to give you ….


“The First piece”
2016 UPDATE!:

Hey guys! I'm in the very happy position to say that since the beggining of summer 2016 FairyABC -Pixie Hollow's Recreation- works once again and Pixie Hollow is REVIVED/BACK !
(The game is nothing like it was in 2015.Now it's a lot like the original!)


-click on the images-




The game is an amature project and still a work in progress so you might encounter some problems...In that case this post will be super helpful to get you started!:



On the blog's main page you can also find the latest updates for the game!
What follows is what I wrote back in 2014.You can just skip to the second piece if you want,just scroll down ;)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2014:
This is a video, I discovered just today, since I really had cut off most connections with any Pixie Hollow related stuff these months… . So it is a video on Youtube by Izzy Foxstone, giving us a bit of an info and a small preview, of the game .this now “famous” fellow  sparrow- man by the name of Wind Muddle, together with his friend Apple tried to make, this new Pixie Hollow, everybody was talking about these months after Pixie Hollow closed down! :D 

Unfortunatly, the website is unavailable for now as they are adding new features, and so I haven’t got to try it for myself and therefore won’t be able to tell you much on this L However I’ve got to say a HUGE bravo to Wind Muddle and Apple for taking up such a great and amazingly HARD project! To find out more here is the link to their facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1425878040974180&set=a.1388521301376521.1073741828.100006559929676&type=1&theater

and the link to  the video, so check for yourself:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQoFw0vdbeg
And this is also another related video I found :
As you can see it looks very much like Pixie Hollow, but the fairies are a lot bigger xD



(The pictures above were taken from Wind's and Apple's  Facebook Page)





“The Second piece”
2016 UPDATE!:
I'd just like to add here Rose Morningmist's recreation of Pixie Hollow on Worlize.Many people have recreated it on that website but I find Rose's version is by far the best one:
https://www.worlize.com/PIXIEHOLLOW-Rose

NOTE:In order for the link to work you have to already be logged in to Worlize!

Sneak Peak of Rose's PH:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(2014:)
This is also  something really interesting and worth mentioning,similar to the first game I mentioned above, and it’s  something I “discovered”  thanks to this blog’s very own comment section! So BIG THANKS to Ethereal Spark for making that comment! She has actually tried to recreate the game, using  an app called   Worliz that lets you create your own online world! I think it is very nice  and she really worked hard for it! I visited it myself, and I found a few fairies hanging around there! 

Although I kinda failed to make my avatar the right size so I’m a bit ….  huge! XD (and the wings are a fail too -.-) .OK so in conclusion..my avatar is a fail ... but who cares, i'll work on that....someday!..maybe 0.0

Therefore I think you guys should spread the word! This is the link to her “Pixie Hollow” :
https://www.worlize.com/user_session/new
If this link doesn't work then you can go ahead and try the link in the description of this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYt3UoKNusU

Also here is the blog of the Worlize Pixie Hollow:
http://worlizepixiehollow.blogspot.gr/
They are actually organising a party on May 17th! :P (For more info visit their blog!)

So...I decided to do a little review of this little version of PH! :D
Now..i won’t lie to you…don’t expect this to be like Pixie Hollow as we knew it. 
Since, something like that is EXTREMLY hard to make, exceeding  a fan’s abilities…
But I tried making my own world there too,(not a fairy –one though :P ) and I can assure you it needs a LOT hard work to make one. Anyways, back to the review.
First things first, Ethereal Spark has made a great job creating all the meadows and using the same soundtrack for them as the one used in the game! Awesome, you go girl! (You can find all the meadows at the map, wich is the same as in the normal Pixie Hollow :D )Although the backgroung has been altered a bit by trying to make it the right size...but it's the thought that matters,right ? :) :P.
 And as you enter every new place you can also watch a related video from Youtube! :D
Here you can see Dewdrop Vale, and i have on an different avatar that i got in Queen's Boutique :P



She has also recreated the shops , where you can get a pre-made fairy avatar,(most of avatars are really well made :) , and of course it's totally free! :D



 Otherwise, everyone can upload their own fairy-avatar, and that could even be the picture of the fairy or sparrowman  you used to own in PH! :O! (Although here ,I have to mention that you would have to use Photoshop or GIMP and ect , to make  its background  transparent, and stuff like that)
Now another great thing is that you can of course chat with other fairies! :D Wich means that you can have a place where you and your friends can meet up again! J
However the bad news  is that you can’t really own a fairy home,it only exists there as a place and all the fairy homes are kind of.. how do i say this :P.... well see for yourself :

 However, you can always create your own  fairy room in your  own world! :D And you might not be able to play the same games as in PH, but that would be too much to ask anyways :P !
So that’s pretty much it, I’ll let you explore the rest for yourself! :D Everyone can also comment below and maybe propose some things Ethereal Spark could try adding in, in the game, and I shall contact her and let her know! :D

“The Third Piece”
UPDATE 2016:
I think most people already know this by now but "Harvest Hustle" one of Pixie Hollow's minigames is back!How awesome is that ? :D
Just click below to play ;)




"The Fourth Piece" 
(2014)
So this one, had caused quite an uproar and excitement back when Pixie Hollow had closed down. It is no other than  -as most of us call it-  “The Asian /Chinese Pixie Hollow”, although its name in Chinese is actually translated as “Litlle Flower Fairy” .




Now this is not really Pixie Hollow, but a Chinese game that has many common features with out Pixie Hollow. It is actually really cool from what I’ve been told and from what I’ve seen in videos my friends recorded, but personally when I tried to play it I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON. That is of course no wonder since..erm the game is in Chinese and I might speak English,.. French and Greek.. but I don’t speak any Chinese so… I was totally lost there.. 
Despite that if you are Chinese, or speak Chinese you should definitely  give it a try! :D And if you’re a fan of Manga and Anime you will definitely find this cute! ^^ Otherwise, you could go through the trouble of watching some tutorials on how it works..but that’s gonna be a bit tiring !(Seriously.. it's a a real pain -.- )
Well, whatever, here is the link for those interested:
Some tutorials:


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


UPDATES/EXTRAS:
“The Fifth piece”
One day, I was wandering around the official  "Disney Fairies" website , and discovered this (once new ) , game called "Pixie Party Couture".
http://www.disney.co.uk/disney-fairies/pixie-party-couture

When you enter the game you are “invited to the Purple Moon Party” from the rest of the famous fairies,

and so you have to mix-match some random clothes in a matching “cards” game and create outfits.

 In the game you gain extra points by making some “combos” or getting extra talent points by matching the clothes that belong to a fairy from a specific talent like so:
  
 Tinker talent bonus

Water talent bonus.

    Fast flying fairy bonus.



By gaining points, you level up and gain Credits with which you can buy clothes for your fairy’s wardrobe.

Except from the clothes and accessories though ,you can’t really personalize your fairy which is pretty disappointing, but at least, I guess it reminds you a bit of how it was to dress your fairy up back when PH was open J

Finally you can alays print your fairy! :D


“The Sixth Piece”
2016 UPDATE!:
You may or may not know this but "Create a Fairy" UK doesn't work anymore! :(
Fortunately you can still play the game on the french website,it's pretty much the same:
                                                                 -click on the image-

The only difference you might encounter is with the names,because some words are in French...Well it's not a bid deal.Let me know If you'd like me to make an english tutorial though since I speak French (just comment below ^^)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(2014:)
Now this is something you ALL know!(I think... 0.0 )
 It is of course as many of you call it “The UK’s Pixie Hollow”, actually the game is called “Create a Fairy” and can be found on the U.K version  of the website. http://www.disney.co.uk/disney-fairies/create-a-fairy-activity?
(NOTE!: Let me mention here, that for this game too, you need an account in the uk website ,in order for your changes to be saved!!! )

The game, offers you the chance to get a bit of a taste from the old Hollow. It allows you to choose a talent,

 customize a fairy exactly like in the Old Pixie Hollow, by changing its skin, hair, eyes ,wings and posture and of course its clothes! :D
Here take a look:





You can also, give it a name, using the same way as in PH! :p (I chose a random name here)

 Finally, you can customize your avatar's home, choosing from a small variety of furniture, but some really cute and magical ones! :D (In my opinion at least .. )

When you’re done with that ,you can always invite your friends to visit your page J And yes, you do have a Pixie Page, that looks almost exactly like the one you were used to!If you want to,you can visit mine here :D :

Now that was it for this post, hope you enjoyed  it and I’ll let you know if there’s any new of Ph reopening ! :D
(P.S:T o know when there's gonna be a new post, you could join the blog's newsletter or become a member, which is totally FREE)
Fly with you pixies later <3

    1. No unfortunatly not, as it was based in the Old Pixie Hollow, and in the old PH there weren't any sparrowman avatars sadly :(.
      Even worse same goes for the Worliz version too, it doesn't have any already made sparrowman avatars although you could upload your own :D

  3. Hey Cleo I have a video on how to play on the UK version if anyone is interested they can check out my blog www.pixiehollowstories.com and also I've tried the Chinese Hollow and likewise I was lost and had no idea what the main fairies from the game were telling me to do and it took me an incredibly long time to figure out how to shop and even where the shops are O.O So yeah not to discourage you but don't try playing it unless you have a good translator from chinese to english .

  11. I'm really behind on this stuff o_o
    Anyways, I did play Worlize for the first month or so.. But then I guess I just forgot about it since it was just a very simple version that wasn't really all developed yet. By the way, those pre-made avatars in the Boutique look oddly familiar.. I think I recognize some of those fairies from PHF o_o

    1. Wow, Seriously? o_o... yeah, that may actually be them o.o, who knows XD..And yeah i know it lucks some stuff...but that's the best we have for the time being :/
