Fairies are fictional wish-granting beings, usually winged, who populate fairy tales. Most often serving as godmother (or godfather or godperson) to the protagonist, fairies have appeared frequently in Muppet/Henson productions. They tend to be less competent than their literary counterparts, however.
Within Sesame Street, pixies and sprites have been referenced, but not seen.
In an interview, Abby Cadabby has stated that fairies get teeth at age 120. As she's 3 currently, so it'll be a while until she's eating solid foods.
