The workmanship and detail is perfect and true to the perfection that R John Wright puts into every one of his characters. This Geppetto and Pinocchio were a limited addition it the early 1990’s and only 500 sets were produced. I think all the Disney characters like Pinocchio, Geppetto and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs were only sold at Disneyland. There is a series 2 Geppetto with Pinocchio but I can’t remember what the difference is but I believe that was the last Disney characters the R John Wright Company produced.

His original felt shirt, vest, knickers, socks and shoes are perfect with the RJW brass button in back of his vest along with the tag under his vest. Pinocchio is 9” tall and mint. He is totally original and completely wood jointed. The coloring to his face is marvelous and he has wonderful rosy cheeks and huge, expressive blue painted eyes with a happy smiling face and a little long nose then he should have if he was telling the truth. Like the story Pinocchio is all carved wood and he really pose anyway you want. His mohair wig is fabulous and a bit messy like all little marionettes that are hoping to become little boys. You’ll have to watch him as I think his nose is getting longer every day. He has wonderful jointed arms and legs and his big carved shoes are excellent. He has the original strings that Geppetto can work to make Pinocchio walk and dance. He has his original brass RJW brass button imbedded on the bottom of his shoe along with his series number of 418/500 and The Walt Disney Company written on the bottom of the other shoe. His original felt shirt, pants and hat are mint with no fading and he still has the red feather on the side of his hat. Again, Pinocchio and Geppetto come with their the original Certificate of Authenticity, original booklet, with the added feature of the alternate booklet. Pinocchio looks fabulous standing or, if you have Pinocchio's over sized chair, he looks fabulous sitting on it. This Pinocchio and Geppetto would make a fabulous addition to any R John Wright collection or vintage Pinocchio or Disney collection and could be wonderful as a mother’s day surprise.
