The Fairy with Turquoise Hair (Italian: La Fata dai Capelli Turchini; often simply referred to as The Blue Fairy, La Fata Turchina) is a fictional character the 1883 Italian book The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, repeatedly appearing at critical moments in Pinocchio’s wanderings to admonish the little wooden puppet to avoid bad or risky behavior.
Although the naïvely willful marionette initially resists her good advice, he later comes to follow her instruction. She in turn protects him, and later enables his assumption of human form, contrary to the prior wooden form.
