As a Muppet

Abby first appeared in 2006 on the 123 Sesame Street float, and is normally seen in Big Bird's Nest alongside Big Bird himself and Elmo.

As a Balloon

For the 81st Parade, a balloon of the character debuted (Alongside Hello Kitty and Shrek) and was the lead balloon that year. This balloon replaced the Big Bird balloon which meant it appeared after or before the Sesame Street float. It appeared for 3 parades and was retired after the 2009 parade. The Sesame Street float is now preceded by a non-muppet balloon.


  • In 2007, when she made her debut as a balloon, her wand stick became detached for an unknown reason.
