TORONTO, March 11 /CNW/ - For the first time ever Canada Blooms welcomes Disney Fairies to Toronto with The Magical World of Tinker Bell experience. This four season garden takes you through the talents of each Disney Fairies character - Rosetta the Garden Fairy, Silvermist the Water Fairy, Iridessa the Light Fairy, Fawn the Animal Fairy and, of course, the most popular Disney Fairies character of all, Tinker Bell a Tinker Fairy. Built through the eyes of a child, this garden is meant to inspire the senses, evoke the magic of pixie dust and celebrate the passion of children and their creative minds.

Teamscape member Frank Ferragine, also known as Frankie Flowers of CityTV's Breakfast Television and CityLine, says, "This garden will bring out the child in all of us with magical twists, an interactive children's play area and a beautiful floral explosion!"

On the collaboration with Teamscape for this project, Janice Lau-Pearson, national marketing manager Disney Consumer Products Canada said, "In the world of Pixie Hollow, the Disney Fairies are in charge of bringing the four seasons to the Mainland through their unique talents. This magical creation by Teamscape.ca brings that experience to life in a fun and interactive way." In addition to the garden experience, there will be face painting, a colouring station, Disney Fairies activities CD giveaway and photo opportunities with Disney Fairies characters.
