In the enchanted kingdom of Pinkovia, the fairy Princess Lillifee rules with a magic hand, creating beauty and good will wherever she travels. Together with her pet pig Pupsi, she zooms throughout the countryside leaving behind a magical trail, clouds of pink butterflies, and sparkling stars. Still, she soon discovers that not all in her kingdom are content. With the passing ages, the Fairies of Pinkle have become worse in the misuse of their magical powers. It is the Farmer Pixies, the Fisher Elves and the Mermaids of the surrounding countryside that suffer so much from the Fairies' mischief that they are actually considering leaving the enchanted realm forever. Being a caring Princess, this makes Lillifee very sad. But together with all of her friends, Princess Lillifee is determined to restore the gentle harmony of her wonderful kingdom and fill it again with the joy of its glittery splendor...
