The story follows the wooden puppet, carved by Geppetto in a small Italian village, as he comes to life and dreams of becoming a real boy so that he and Geppetto can be a proper family. Pinocchio is known for his short nose, which grows longer when he fabricates mischievous stories and lies. Along his journey, Pinnocchio must prove himself as brave, truthful and unselfish for The Blue Fairy to make him real. With Jiminy Cricket as his conscience, Pinnocchio battles past many temptations brought by unsavoury characters to prove himself. The fairytale has morals of family and honesty and has fully stood the test of time for children of all era’s, even the really big ones!
