Forest Fairy Five - The Fairy with Turquoise Hair - Netflix

The Fairy with Turquoise Hair (Italian: La Fata dai Capelli Turchini, often simply referred to as La Fata Turchina) is a fictional character in Carlo Collodi's 1883 book The Adventures of Pinocchio. She repeatedly appears 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. The character is the inspiration for the Blue Fairy in Disney's adaptation of the story.

In the 1992 direct to video adaptation by GoodTimes Entertainment, the Blue Fairy (voiced by Jeannie Elias) is portrayed more like her Disney counterpart with blonde hair instead of turquoise. She is soft-spoken and sweet. The Blue Fairy is also a motherly figure to Pinocchio and guides him.
