The celebrity hosts met a few patients in person while handing out prizes to the winners after the games.

The duo are part of A Moment of Magic, a national nonprofit organization based at Western Michigan University that visits children at home and in the hospital.

Anna and Tinkerbell then moved down the hall to visit a few other patients who made silly jokes along the way.

“What is the only word in the dictionary that is misspelled? Anna asked.

” It’s difficult. I don’t know.” said Tinkerbell.

“Well, that would have to be the wrong word. It is, in fact, misspelled,” Anna said as they both laughed.

The duo visited 7-year-old Remi Becker, who was in the epilepsy monitoring unit for observation.

They discussed pets and who has more.

“We have a dog, three guinea pigs, a rabbit, two birds, a turtle and three aquariums at home,” Rémi’s mother said. “And four goats at Grandma’s too.”

“Wow. Are you an animal fairy? Tinkerbell joked.

The princesses spent more time visiting patients and presenting awards before Anna had to return to her kingdom and Tinkerbell to Neverland.

“That kind of thing makes the day a lot more fun,” said Sarah Dieleman, mother of an infusion clinic patient.

Her son won a game of bingo and spent time discussing Pokémon with the princesses.

“We are grateful for these events that make the time spent in the clinic go by much faster,” she said.
