1) QUESTION: Is my child's private information
protected when using this site and its features?
ANSWER: YES! I am the sole proprietor (with one
assistant) and any information your children might share from using this
site is stored on my home computer (not on the Internet or accessible by any
Internet user). All correspondence is thru email, so phone numbers,
addresses, and other private information is not necessary or requested.
Email addresses ARE NOT shared, sold, or given to any other party. In
fact, if you are concerned about your child receiving emails from us, you
can have her use your email address (so you can monitor any info that she
might receive from us) or sign her up for a free Gmail account specifically
for correspondence with us.
2) QUESTION: Why would you need to personally correspond
with my child?
ANSWER: The only correspondence necessary is for the
redemption of peaks (points) for advancement, treasures, and prizes. In the
beginning levels of play, prizes are mostly digital such as cards, fairy
portraits, animations, and other various graphics that they might collect.
Advanced levels provide more physical, tangible rewards; but these are sent
to the Fairy Queens to be issued to the winners of the earned rewards. Fairy
Queens are like den mothers; they host the fairy parties and handle any
correspondence that requires a physical location (address, phone number,
etc.). For more details about this and/or how the game is played, see this
link How to Play or the
Fairy Queens page.
3) QUESTION: Does it cost anything; that is, is it all
ANSWER: It is all free except for the Fairy Magic
Workbook, which cost $00.00 and can be ordered here: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
Everything else is free. The kids collect charms from common objects in
nature and around the house; and they can make their own pixie pockets,
pouches, and fairy dust from the instructions provided on the
Pixie Pockets page and the
Fairy Dust page.
If money is not an issue and time is limited, they can
purchase the pixie pockets, pouches, and fairy dust from our sister site at
money collected for the books is used to maintain this site and pay for the
prizes and rewards that the kids earn thru points (called peaks). When money
is involved, we do not collect it here. The books come directly from the
publisher and PixiePockets.net collects thru PayPal. This ensures that your
private credit card information is protected and NEVER available on any of
4) QUESTION: What are the responsibilities of the
ANSWER: All of the Fairy Queen's tasks are listed on
the Fairy Queens page including ways to make
a little money on the pixie parties.
5) QUESTION: Once a charm has been redeemed for
prizes, your rules specify that it cannot be redeemed again. Can the charm
then be discarded and the Pixie Pocket reused for another charm?
ANSWER: Yes. But charms are also used, in combination
with other charms, for Fairy Magic. Children need to believe in things with
greater power than themselves and Fairy Magic is a way for them to do that.
This NOT a wiccan thing or anything connected to any cult or occult. The
charms are officially called "Lucky Charms" and believing in the magic of a
lucky charm is as harmless for a child as believing in our world's other
magical treasures such as Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny, and
the wizard world of Harry Potter. If you feel it's necessary to reveal an
alternate view, you can tell your child that the lucky charms are just
symbols of magic and that the real magic comes from inside of them (from
their own hearts) or from their God.
This is just a game, but a game of magic that teaches
children all kinds of wonderful things. For example, after a child collects
every leaf on the charm's list, she will be able to identity every leaf on
every tree that's listed, plus every seashell, every feather, every seed,
every flower, and hundreds of other items from nature and this world we all
occupy. She will learn these things BECAUSE it's a game of magic, so the
objects have a significant meaning to her.
In addition, she can use her lucky charms to create
courage, self confidence, generosity, patience, understanding, and more. Was
Samson's hair really the source of his power or was it his belief that his
hair gave him strength? Does the little gold cross that so many wear on a
necklace around their neck really protect them or is it their belief in that
symbol (and what it stands for) that protects them?
Once the girls reach the higher levels, they can begin
collecting pixie pearls. These are only earned two ways: by redeeming peaks
for pearls OR by performing selfless acts of kindness such as helping an
elderly neighbor sweep their porch and sidewalks for a week, or mowing a
neighbor's lawn, or inviting one of the "unpopular" kids home for dinner---sort
of a good Samaritan thing.
The tasks and instructions are listed on the
Pixie Pearls page. The prizes for peaks are mostly digital treasures,
but the prizes for pearls are real, physical gifts (and some of them are
actually real pearls).
Fairy Magic is like a modern day form of girl scouts
where girls can socialize with friends, learn about hundreds of different
and marvelous things, earn rewards for selfless acts of kindness, and get
away from videos, television, and computer games. It's about putting your
children BACK into the world and OFF the sofa/computer/cell phone, plus helping them to respect
nature, one another, and the other people who share this world with them.
Only your endorsement and support can make this work.
