Abby Cadabby

In it’s upcoming 37th season Sesame Street is introducting a new muppet, Abby Cadabby.

Abby Cadabby

From the official press release:

Abby Cadabby is an inquisitive 3-year-old fairy-in-training who has just moved to Sesame Street from Fairyside, Queens. The daughter of a Fairy Godmother, she is learning magic but is not quite proficient yet and has a propensity for turning things into pumpkins with her “training wand.” She has come from a storybook world and is well-versed in fairytales, as they are a part of her family history. Abby loves to practice her magic and rhyming, but what she finds truly amazing and magical is what she discovers on Sesame Street; such as learning to count and drawing a letter with a crayon. These new things are utterly enchanting to her and she will often say “That’s so magic!” She is shy yet curious when she first meets the inhabitants of Sesame Street. She wonders if Snuffy is a “mountain” and if Big Bird is a “giant.” Despite her initial shyness, she makes many new friends, including Elmo, Zoe, and Rosita. They in turn are delighted and fascinated with Abby; that she can “pop” in and out, that she floats when she is happy, and that she has beautiful wings. In Season 37 Abby attends school for the first time at the Storybook Community School and is very excited about going.

UPDATE: I’d just like to point out that I DO NOT work for The Jim Henson Company, PBS, Children’s Televesion Workshop or Sesame Street. I’m just a Muppet fan with a blog.

In essence, I don’t know when there will be merchandise (especially dolls) available of Abby Cadabby, but I’m trying to find out and pass along all the positive comments as well.

Stay tuned (but be patient).


Try Froogle or Sesame
