It's no secret that Mikey and Jane, the Governor's teenage children, are spoilt and unruly brats. Unable to handle their precocious behaviour any longer, their father calls for the world's favourite nanny to come and keep an eye on them. However, owing to a small error, they end up getting her distant cousin Merry Poppins instead.
Together with her friend Bertie, Merry takes the children on a magical journey in an attempt to teach them some manners. However all is not well... The princess of the magical land is being hassled by the Dark Duke Derek who is trying to take her kingdom. At the same time, the evil and immeasurably wealthy Lord and Lady Richman have set a nefarious plot in motion that could well see the downfall of the Governor.
Will good win over evil? And more importantly, will Merry Poppins succeed in disciplining the children - thereby securing herself a cushy government job as a reward?
