Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom Wiki
Turn Them/It/Him/Her into a Frog!

—Nanny Plum

Nanny Plum is one of the main characters of the series. She is a fairy residing in the Little Kingdom. She works as a housekeeper for the Little Castle, and is also Princess Holly's nanny.

She is also one of the main protagonists of the show, She has a crush on Nigel Redbeard the Elf Pirate.


Nanny Plum comes off as sarcastic and cynical; at times being dismissive to authority. She can generally be immature and is typically carefree about her actions. Despite this, she can be very friendly and helpful, especially towards Holly, who she is very close to.

She finds it humorous when characters take themselves too seriously; such as the Wise Old Elf. They rival each other due to their differing opinions over the use of magic and their clashing personalities. And she loves turning people into frogs and doing nonsense.


She has short black hair tied in a half bun. Her fringe/bangs are in a short 'baby' style. She wears a long purple dress, a white nappy, purple shoes, and is always seen with her wand.
