Fairy Mission to find Stripe
Stripe is a fast-flying Fairyland bug. She has been sneaked out of Fairyland by goblins. The fairy family (mum, dad, and their three daughters Moonbeam, Star and Firestar) are on a mission to reunite her with the Fairy King.
To accomplish this mission, the fairies must leave Fairyland, and adventure into the human world to rescue Stripe. However, Stripe's magic powers are fading fast... can the fairies find Stripe before she is too weak to fly back to Fairyland?
