ARCHIVEWooden Pinocchio Marionette


Once upon a time, there was ... 'A king!' my little readers will say right away. No, children, you are wrong. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood....

And so begins the magical story of the wooden puppet, lovingly carved by Geppetto, who wants to become a real boy by proving himself to be "brave, truthful and unselfish".  First published in Italy in 1883 as Le Avventure di Pinocchio, it is considered a classic in children's literature, inspiring many other works of art including Disney's academy award winning 1940 animated movie of the same name.

We fell in love with Pinocchio as children and we fell in love with him all over again when we found this adorable fellow in a sprawling market in Mexico City.  Hand-carved and painted, he is a naive and charming marionette that encourages the imagination to soar.

"Now, remember, Pinocchio, be a good boy.  And always let your conscience be your guide."
