  • The Fairy Princess will spread holiday cheer from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 14 and 21, and from noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 15 and 22, at the Kansas City Museum, 3218 Gladstone Blvd., Kansas City.
    There will be Fairy Princess themed arts and crafts activities and holiday décor for visitors to enjoy. The cost is $10 to visit with the princess, which includes a photo and Fairy Princess gift.
    The Fairy Princess tradition began in 1935 when Kline’s first opened its Toyland. The brand new toy department incorporated the latest trends in child development. A child could visit Santa at any department store, but only Kline’s featured the unique Fairy Princess. In the following decades, the white-gowned princess continued to fascinate children.
    To re-create one of the treasured traditions of downtown Christmas, the Kansas City Museum brought back the Fairy Princess tradition in 1987. The mission of the Fairy Princess event is to recreate this Kansas City historic event with an air of wonder and excitement.
